Pickled Jalapeño & Pimento Cheese Stuffed Burgers with Peppered Bacon

Stuffed burgers are the BOMB, ya’ll!  I admit, I have a weakness for amazing, mouthwatering burger concoctions.  You know, the kind that ooze with a ridiculous amount of layered ingredients that blend together like peanut butter and jelly.  I’m getting hungry just thinking just daydreaming about them.  Typically, I’m not a bun fan…I know, GASP.  I really just like the stuff inside the bun.  I usually go for a lettuce wrap and load it up with veggies and toppings, skipping the processed bread to make it a healthier meal.  That, to me, is burger bliss.  However, occasionally when I’m craving the bun, the Hawaiian sweet buns are over-the-top good with this flavor combo.  I put together a few of my favorite things for this burger creation…beef, bacon and pimento cheese to create an umami sensation.  This burger, my friends, is “slap yo’ mama good!!”  Save it for a splurge day, because you definitely deserve it!
