If you’ve ever tried stuffing a burger with cheese you know it can be challenging.
Here’s how to master stuffing a burger with pimento cheese (recipe below) without creating a burger mess. Stuffing with this kind of cheese works really well because the combination of cheeses tends to stay firm enough to keep from leaking out.
Pimento cheese is a southern delicacy sometimes called the “Caviar of The South.” I love it because it can also be used as a dip or spread on crackers. In fact – thanks to low carb diets – it has become trendy to serve with pork rinds.
WATCH: Take a look at the video as i step through making the pimento cheese, stuffing a burger with it, and grilling them up over charcoal.
The trick is to shape the cheese into a tube shape in parchment paper and freezing or chilling. Then cut the cheese into disks that can be pressed into hamburger cups. Working with COLD ingredients helps the process.
