DIRECTIONS

  • MAKE PIMENTO CHEESE:.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine Cheddar and Jack cheeses, mayonnaise, cream cheese, pimento peppers, pickle juice, horseradish sauce, and mustard; mix until well combined.
  • MAKE HONEY SLAW:.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine mayonnaise, honey, and cabbage; mix until well combined.
  • COOK BACON:.
  • Heat a 12-inch nonstick grill pan over medium-high heat. Add bacon and cook until the bacon is crispy, about 5 minutes, flipping once. Drain on paper towels. Pour off almost all of the bacon fat from the pan, leaving a very thin layer.
  • MAKE PATTIES:.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (for toasting buns).
  • Combine the beef, country ham, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Handling the meat as little as possible to avoid compacting it, mix well. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions and form into patties to fit the buns. Make an indentation in the middle of the top of each pattie to ensure even cooking.
  • Using the same grill pan as before, cook the hamburgers over medium-high heat for 3 minutes per side or until cooked medium rare.
  • Meanwhile, place buns on a rack in the oven. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, place the plates that the burgers will be served on in the oven to heat.
  • ASSEMBLE BURGERS:.
  • Spread a generous amount of Pimento Cheese on the cut sides of the buns.
  • On each bun bottom (on top of the Pimento Cheese), place a thin layer of Honey Slaw.
  • Top the slaw with a burger patty, 2 slices of bacon, and crushed potato chips.
  • Add the bun tops.
  • Place the completed hamburgers on a nonstick baking sheet and bake in the oven for 1 minute.
  • Serve burgers on warm plates.
