  • 1 1/2 lbs ground sirloin beef
  • 1/2 cup prepared Southern-Style Jalapeño Pimento Cheese
  • 1/2 lb center-cut bacon
  • 1/4 cup pickled jalapeños
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 Hawaiian or brioche hamburger buns


  • Preheat grill to medium heat and preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Place bacon on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil (for easy clean-up) and cover the top with freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Cook the bacon for 8-10 minutes until beginning to crisp
  • Lay bacon onto paper towels to drain and cool
  • Separate ground beef into 8 (3oz) portions
  • Roll meat into balls and place onto wax paper
  • Press balls down into evenly sized patties (you can also use a burger press for this part)
  • Make a small indentation into center of 4 of the patties and place 2 tbsp pimento cheese into each one
  • Top with remaining 4 patties and press edges with a fork to seal the meat, then smooth out edges with fingers
  • Grill burgers until desired doneness (it's about 4 min per side for medium)
  • Place on a bun, if desired, and top with bacon and sliced pickled jalapeños
