Rich Pimento Cheese Burgers

With the help of my friend, I have mastered our go-to burgers. These pimento cheese burgers are melt in your mouth, juicy, and just downright delicious. People ask what we put in our meat every time we make them. The key is the cream. We splash a little heavy cream, Worcestershire, and lots of dashes of hot sauce before mixing it up and calling it a day.

And then I decided to top it with pimento cheese (sorry, I’m not sorry). So these pimento cheese burgers went straight from delicious to the real sinful quick. I’m already dreaming of trying it with some jalapeño pimento cheese.

My dear friend’s recipe for pimento cheese is the best because it is more cream cheese-based than mayo. I wouldn’t say I always like mayonnaise. I like my pimento cheese dense, perfect for spreading on crackers, and not runny with mayo.

These pimento cheese burgers are the total package. It's oozing with the sharp cheese that complements well with the meaty burgers.
