Pimento cheese is dangerously delicious, and when you add it to a bacon burger, it's a killer cookout recipe. 

Ingredients

    • 2 pounds beef brisket (ask your butcher to grind it for you)
    • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
    • 3 dashes hot sauce
    • 1 recipe pimento cheese (recipe follows)
    • 6 hamburger buns
    • 6 strips cooked bacon
    • Sweet bread and butter pickles (optional)
  • Pimento cheese

    • 1 cup white cheddar cheese, shredded
    • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
    • 1 cup mayonnaise
    • 6 ounces roasted red peppers, diced
    • ¼ cup chopped pecans
    • ¼ cup chopped green onions
    • ¼ teaspoon hot sauce
    • ¼ teaspoon Cajun seasoning
    • ¼ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Preparation

Make pimento cheese: Mix all ingredients together. Set aside. 

Make burgers: Heat a gas grill to medium heat.

Mix Cajun seasoning, hot sauce, and Worcestershire into the ground brisket meat. Form the meat into 6 patties and season with salt and pepper.

Grill patties on each side for 3-4 minutes. Remove burgers to a platter and let them rest for 5 minutes.

Spread a thick layer of pimento cheese on burger. Top with bacon and pickles and place on buns.
