2 oz. cream cheese 1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded 1-2 oz. jar sliced pimentos, drained
Salt and cayenne pepper to taste
(Increase the cayenne pepper to add some kick!)
2 lbs. ground chuck
Salt and pepper to taste
16 strips cooked bacon

Hamburger buns of your choice
Process or stir the cream cheese, mayonnaise, cheddar and seasonings together until well blended. Add the pimentos and process/stir to combine.
Divide ground beef into eight equal portions and shape into burgers. Tip: press your knuckle into the center of the raw burger to decrease shrinkage when cooking.
Season the burgers on both sides with salt and pepper.
Grill the burgers on a medium-high temp for 4 minutes.
Flip the burgers, grill for two minutes and add a generous dollop of the prepared pimento cheese.
Cook for 2 more minutes or until your desired level of doneness is reached.Serve the burgers on buns with bacon slices, lettuce and tomato.
I like to add mustard, catsup and mayonnaise too!
