  • When the burgers are almost done, remove from the heat.
  • Top with ¼ cup pimento cheese spread and place the lid on the pan. Leave the lid on the pan 1 minute or until the cheese is heated through and melting.
  • Place the burgers on the buns, add the toppings/condiments and serve.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • Flip your burgers once! Do not flip your burgers until a brown crust has formed, then flip once, this allows for an even and perfect crisp texture without overcooking the insides.
  • You can use a meat thermometer to make sure you burgers are done. The USDA recommends cooking ground beef until it reaches an internal temperature of 160˚F for safety reasons. Some people like it more rare but if you have young kids and elderly around you may want to keep to the safety guidelines.
  • A soft bun is perfect for burgers, they don't leave you with a mouthful of bread and mold themselves around the ingredients for the perfect bite every time.
  • Keep things simple! By all means you can go crazy with toppings, but the best burgers are often the simplest, allowing the star of the show - the patty - to shine. A bit of crunch from lettuce and some classic condiments are just the ticket to keep it simple and delicious!
