2 oz diced pimento peppers, drained

In a mixing bowl, combine all pimento cheese ingredients. Mix well; set aside. Combine beef with salt, pepper and garlic. Gently mix with your hands until ingredients are evenly distributed. Divide into 4 equal-sized patties.
Grill burgers until cooked to desired doneness. Just before burgers are done, spread about 2 tablespoons of pimento cheese onto each patty. Once cheese has melted, remove from grill. Add remaining pimento cheese to buns. Serve with ketchup, lettuce and red onion.

Pimento Cheese Everything
Who said your favorite cheese is just for sandwiches and burgers? Pimento cheese makes everything better! You can use it to make dip, quesadillas, cheesy muffins or biscuits, mac and cheese, loaded baked potatoes, omelets – it even goes great in grits! So you might just want to whip up a double batch and try it out with your next dish!
Believe it or not, not everyone loves a juicy beef burger. For those looking for good alternatives, there are lots of other meats and meat substitutes to try. Meat options include chicken, pork, turkey, salmon, and game meats such as venison or bison. On the vegetarian front, there are loads of options to choose from including black bean, quinoa, chickpea, sweet potato, zucchini and mushroom. So if you’re not a beef fan or you just feel like mixing it up, get creative with some different ingredients.
