These things are awesome. Got the recipe from a magazine called Cuisine at home. I've started to play with the recipe a bit, since everyone in my family loves spicy food, I've added some fresh Hatch Green Chile's in with the cheese, and chipotle, or Tabasco mayo works well for a little extra kick. Here's the original recipe out of the magazine tho.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. Process the cream cheese, mayo, cheddar, and seasonings for the Pimiento Cheese. Add Pimientos, pulse to combine.
  3. Shape ground chuck into eight 4-oz. portions on wax paper. Press each portion into a 4" patty using a fork, then season with salt and pepper.
  4. Top 4 patties with a slice of onion. Cover with remaining patties, seal edges with a fork, and season again. Grill burgers on an oiled grate for 4 minutes; flip, and cook 2 minutes more.
  5. Spoon 1/4 cup Pimiento Cheese on each burger, grill 2 minutes longer. Serve on kaiser rolls with bacon, lettuce, and tomato.
