Ingredients

4 oz. extra-sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 jar (4 oz.) pimentos, drained and finely
minced
1 1/2 Tbs. finely chopped green onions, white
and green portions
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
Pinch of black pepper
2 Tbs. mayonnaise
1 1/4 lb. ground beef
12 Parker House rolls, each 2 inches wide,
warmed
Lettuce leaves, sliced tomatoes or other favorite
burger accompaniments
French fries for serving (see related recipe at
right)


In a bowl, combine the cheddar cheese, pimentos, green onions, 1/2 tsp. of the salt, the cayenne and black pepper. Stir in the mayonnaise until incorporated. Refrigerate the pimento cheese until ready to use.


In a bowl, combine the ground beef and the remaining 1 tsp. salt. Divide into 12 equal portions and gently form into balls. Using a mini burger press, shape the balls into patties.


Heat a nonstick grill pan over medium-high heat. Working in batches, cook the burgers for 1 to 2 minutes, then flip them. Spoon the pimento cheese onto the burgers and cook for 1 to 2 minutes more, or until done to your liking.


Serve the burgers immediately on Parker House rolls with your favorite burger accompaniments and French fries. Serves 4.
