Pimento Cheeseburger Topping

Anita’s a huge fan of pimento cheese (she makes a pimento cheese salad for sandwiches), so when I ran across this recipe for pimento cheeseburger topping from Annie’s Recipes, I snapped it up and made it the next time we grilled burgers.

The pimento cheese stays together. It doesn’t just up and run down your burger and onto your plate or into your lap. Every bite you take you get that wonderful cheesy flavor with just a little bit of a kick from the hot sauce. It’s much better than just tossing a slice of cheese on your burger, that’s for sure.

Pimento Cheeseburger ToppingPimento cheese isn’t just for hamburgers, either. It’s great on hot dogs or on baked potatoes (yes!).

I grew a few pimentos in our (small) garden this year. I can’t wait to harvest them and use them for making this pimento cheeseburger topping again.
