This one is all Hashmaker's fault on the Egghead Forum. I've been wanting to try one forever, but it never seemed to move up on my list until he made one last week and said he'd like to see my take on it. From that moment, I knew it was on. I could have taken the easy way out and used store bought pimento cheese, but I thought it would be better if I made my own. Cast of characters minus the diced jalapeno

Mixed that all up and tossed it in the fridge to get happy together.

Lit the Egg and got it stabilized at 550. Only one patty as this was the last night for Mrs. G being on the road till July. Yippie!!

Image

Let it cook for 4 minutes of so, then flipped and topped with 2 tablespoons of the pimento cheese

Image

Pulled it after another 4 minutes of so and constructed my burger. Two slices of bacon on top, a slice of tomato on the bottom, telera rolls (rolls used to make Mexican tortas) that were toasted up in the bacon grease (why let a good thing go to waste?) and served up with some onion rings.

After a few bites, I had to put it down and text Dyal_SC (we were texting through out the night) and let him know that I had just found my new favorite burger. So cheesey, ooey gooey meltedy perfection. So decadent. I was happy as a....I don't know. Something very happy. Thanks for the inspiration and motivation to get off my butt and finally make one, Hashmaker. I could go for another one right now.

Now this is something to definitely keep in mind for the next time I make some burgers!

That's a fine bachelor meal, Griff! Good food *and* good drink! :wink:

Neat idea, count me in on that one! I'm already thinking of ways to enhance what already looks perfect. Maybe smoking some red peppers and dicing them up in the cheese instead of canned pimentos... Love the jalapeno addition, I'd keep that. Maybe a clove of crushed garlic in there... What intrigues me most is the cheese mixture.

Nice job on everything.
