Pimento Cheese Burger

Jane Whittaker


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.
