BURGER OF THE MONTH: JALAPENO-PIMENTO CHEESE SLIDERS
May 3, 2012
Our ongoing tribute to the burger continues with a slider topped with delicious jalapeno-pimento cheese.
1lb ground beef, preferably an 80/20 blend
Salt and course ground pepper
Jalapeno-pimento cheese (recipe follows)
8 mini burger buns
1 pound sharp cheddar, grated
1 jalapeno (ribs and seeds removed), minced
1 7-ounce jar pimentos, drained
¾ cups mayonnaise
½ tsp hot sauce
Combine all ingredients and mix until well blended. Refrigerate at least one hour to allow the flavors to combine.
Preheat grill to medium high. Gently form ground beef into eight 2-inch patties. Sprinkle both sides of burger patties liberally with salt and pepper.
Grill burgers until thoroughly cooked through, approximately 4-5 minutes per side. Place burgers on the bottom buns, top each with approximately 2 tbsp jalapeno-pimento cheese. Add top bun and serve immediately.
