PIMENTO CHEESE BURGER

4 oz. grated sharp yellow
   cheddar cheese
3 tbsp. mayonnaise
1 tbsp. diced pimentos
1 tbsp. grated onion
1⁄2 tsp. worcestershire
Kosher salt and freshly ground
   black pepper, to taste
1 1⁄2 lbs. ground beef,
   formed into 4 medium-size patties
4 hamburger buns, toasted
Iceberg lettuce, for garnish
4 slices tomato, for garnish

1. In a bowl, combine cheese, mayonnaise, pimentos, grated onion, and worcestershire; season with salt and pepper. Set pimento cheese aside.

2. Season patties with salt and pepper. Prepare a medium-hot charcoal fire or heat a gas grill to medium-high (or heat a tablespoon of canola oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat). Grill burgers, flipping once, until cooked to desired doneness, about 10 minutes for medium rare. Spread 2 tbsp. pimento cheese over each burger; cover and let melt. Serve burgers on buns with lettuce and tomato.
