Pimento Cheese Burgers

Ingredients

2 tablespoons cream cheese
2 tablespoons to 3 chopped/diced jarred pimentos, drained
1 pound ground chuck
Sea salt or kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Large hamburger buns
Garnish: Lettuce, tomato slices

Preparation

1
Form the burger patties and press a nice 'well' on top of each where you put the pimento cheese.
2
With a large spoon or tablespoon put a nice sized dollop of pimento cheese in each well on top of the meat patties.
3
Pull the sides of the ground meat up and around the cheese as best as possible, sort of like the sides of a bowl.
4
Form another thin meat patty and place it on top.
5
With your fingers, tightly seal the two layers of meat patties so that the cheese will stay contained within when grilled.
6
Sprinkle the burgers with your favorite seasons and plenty of salt.
7
Grill for at least 5 minutes on each side.

About

This is a favorite hamburger in South Carolina that uses southern Pimento Cheese as either a filling (as in this recipe) inside the burgers or as a topping. Very yummy!
