This was originally from the Saveur mag's, burger issue Sept 2009,
We just love this one too. One thing my Southern sisters taught me is pimentos and cheese are a match made in heaven.
Sometimes I use american cheese, and sometimes I use cheddar,either way these are so good.
Sometimes I use American cheese in the prewrapped slices, and just dice those.
