Ingredients

FOR THE PIMIENTO CHEESE—

FOR THE BURGERS—

For more flavor, add cooked bacon to the seasoned ground beef. Be sure not to forget the pimento cheese!

Instructions

Preheat grill to medium-high.

Blend mayonnaise, Cheddar, pimientos, and salt for the Pimiento Cheese in a food processor; refrigerate until ready to serve.

Sauté bacon for the burgers in a skillet over medium-high heat until crisp. Transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate, cool slightly, then mix with ground chuck, salt, and pepper. Gently shape meat into patties slightly larger than the roll to allow for shrinkage, then grill to medium-well, about 4 minutes per side. Just before burgers are done, place buns on burgers to heat through (see Test Kitchen Tip).

Assemble burgers with lettuce, tomatoes, and Pimiento Cheese. Serve with Chipotle-Maple Black Beans.

You must cook the bacon before mixing with the ground beef — otherwise, it’ll be rubbery.

Use a biscuit cutter that’s slightly larger than the bun to shape and press burgers to a consistent size.

Dollop a spoonful of pimiento cheese on each tomato — it adds a little tanginess to the burger.
