pimento cheese burgers

Bacon, Pimento Cheese and Jalapeño Burgers

  • Author: Robyn
  • Yield: Serves 4 1x


  • 1 lb ground beef (I use grassfed, hormone free)
  • 3 jalapenos
  • 1 tbsp olive oil (for sautéing Jalapenos)
  • 8 strips bacon
  • 2 cups pimento cheese, I recommend Garden and Gun’s pimento Cheese recipe.
  • 4 onion rolls (or buns of your choice)


  • Go ahead and make your Pimento cheese or have it ready to go if it is store bought.
  • Preheat your grill to 350 degrees for direct heat. In the meantime, go ahead and core your jalapenos and remove the seeds. Chop them up in ¼” slices and sauté quickly in olive oil while your grill is heating up.
  • Microwave your bacon strips for 3 minutes or until crispy.
  • Now the grill should be ready. Take your beef and make 4 patties, put an indentation in the middle with your finger which will help the burger stay flat and not turn into balls on the grill.
  • Grill your burgers until they have reached an internal temp of 140 degrees for a medium burger (I recommend using an internal read digital thermometer such as the thermapen to quickly test temps).
  • Let the burgers rest for 5-10 minutes so they can reabsorb the juices. Once you remove the burgers, shut the grill down and add your buns to toast while the meat rests.
  • Layer 1/3 cup of pimento cheese, bacon, and jalapenos on the burgers. Add your favorite fixins- note the pimento cheese already has mayo so taste the burger before you decide to add ketchup or mustard, it probably won’t need it!.

Enjoy a trifecta of – creamy pimento cheese coupled with bacon and the spice of jalapenos. YUM!
