Cheddar-Stuffed Pimento Burgers
Want to make plain cheeseburgers extra special? Give the meat a bold kick of flavor by mixing in pimentos. And instead of laying cheese on top of the burgers, turn them “outside in” by stuffing Cheddar inside!
FOR THE SCALLION MAYONNAISE, STIR:
FOR THE BURGERS, MIX:
Topping burgers with butter as they finish cooking is a Midwestern tradition that's definitely worth a try.
For the scallion mayonnaise, stir together mayonnaise, scallions, Tabasco, and sugar; chill.
For the burgers, mix together ground chuck and pimentos in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Shape meat into 8 patties on parchment paper, sized to fit rolls.
Top 4 patties with Cheddar, then fold the paper so the other patty covers the cheese-topped one. Peel away the paper, and seal the burgers well with a fork.
Preheat a cast-iron skillet over medium-high. Add burgers to the skillet; cook 6 minutes. Flip burgers over, top each burger with 1 tsp. butter, and cook 6 minutes more. Transfer burgers to a platter.
Toast rolls in skillet, cut side down, until golden. Serve burgers on toasted rolls with Scallion Mayonnaise, lettuce, and tomatoes.
For each burger, top one patty with cheese, and carefully fold the paper so the other patty covers it.
Press the edges of the two patties together with a fork to form one cheese-stuffed burger.
Place a pat of butter on each burger after flipping them. The butter will melt and add delicious flavor.
