Pimento Cheese-Bacon Burgers

Pimento Cheese-Bacon Burgers

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings


  • 2 pounds ground beef chuck, preferably 80/20 blend
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • Smoky Pimento Cheese
  • 6 warmed brioche buns
  • 6 thin slices tomato
  • 12 slices crisp-cooked bacon


  • Place the ground chuck in a shallow bowl and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with the Worcestershire sauce and then mix the beef gently to evenly distribute the seasonings. Shape into 6 flattened patties about 1/2-inch thick and roughly the same diameter as the buns.

    Heat a large nonstick or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.

    When hot, add the patties to the pan and cook until crisp on one side, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the burgers to the second side and top each patty with 2 to 3 tablespoons of the pimento cheese, as desired. Cook until the patties are golden and slightly crisp on the second side, 2 to 3 minutes longer, and pimento cheese is partially melty.

    Transfer the burgers to the warmed buns, and garnish with tomato slices and crispy bacon.
