Bobby Flay's Pimento Cheese-Bacon Burgers

Pimento Bacon Cheeseburger

Oh y'all, these are so wonderfully different and yummy! They were a big hit at my house this past weekend. The homemade pimento cheese was really easy and added pizazz to regular burgers. Pizazz is always a good thing, no?

Here's how to do it:

Bobby Flay - Pimento Bacon Cheeseburgers
1/3 C mayonnaise (I used Hellman's)
1/4 t Kosher salt
1/4 t ground black pepper
1/4 t cayenne pepper
1/4 lb extra sharp white Cheddar cheese, coarsely grated
1/4 lb extra sharp yellow Cheddar, coarsely grated
1/3 C drained and finely chopped roasted red peppers or piquillo
1.5 lbs lean ground beef, shaped into burgers
Thick sliced smoked bacon, cooked

Combine mayo, salt, pepper, and cayenne in a bowl. Stir in cheeses and roasted red peppers. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.

Make your burgers and grill or cook them. During the last 30 seconds of cooking, top each burger with cheese mixture, then cook covered until cheese melts slightly. Arrange burgers on buns and top with bacon.


*Bacon not pictured. heh.

You should grate blocks of cheese instead of buying pre-shredded cheese. It makes a lot of difference in the creaminess of the texture.

This is a Bobby Flay recipe. He was on TV with a Fouth of July special this weekend sponsored by Hellman's Mayonaise (our favorite) and he made these. I'm not involved with him or Hellman's, I'm just saying this is where the recipe came from. Keeping it FTC free all up in here.

You really should try this at your next hamburger grilling.

That sounds DELICIOUS and you're so right about grating your own cheese! It melts so much better and the flavor is SO much richer! NOM NOM

This ia an incredible recipe. I had the real thing at Flay's Bar Americain Restaurant in NYC this past week. Everything there is good. Grate your own cheese. I add a dash of vinegar and lemon pepper. Try it.
