A note about serious food allergies

Known as the “caviar of the South,” pimiento cheese spread is the stuff of many party appetizers. We've all been there, slathering that cheesy good stuff on a cracker you hope doesn't break and cover you with unattractive crumbs. That cheesy good stuff is perfect on a meaty burger, with some peppery arugula to add some extra crunch. “Caviar” on your burger? Yes, please.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using 20 oz. ground beef, follow same instructions as 10 oz. ground beef, forming four patties and stacking two to serve.

  • If using ground pork, follow same instructions as ground beef in Steps 2 and 3, cooking until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes per side.

  • If using steak strips, spread into a single layer, pat dry, and coarsely chop. Follow same instructions as ground beef in Step 2, stirring occasionally until no pink remains and steak strips reach minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes. Spread pimiento cheese on buns to serve.

  1. 1

    Bake the Fries

    Cut potatoes into 1/2" thick fries. Pat dry.

    Place potatoes on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt.

    Spread into a single layer. Bake in hot oven until lightly browned and tender, 25-30 minutes, flipping once halfway through.

    Carefully, remove fries from oven and toss or gently combine with seasoning blend.

    While fries roast, make pimiento cheese and cook burgers.

  2. 2

    Make the Pimiento Cheese

    Combine pesto, a pinch of salt, cream cheese, hot sauce (to taste), half the mayonnaise (reserve remaining for buns), and shredded cheese in a mixing bowl. Set aside.

  3. 3

    Form the Patties

    In another mixing bowl, combine ground beef, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Form into two evenly-sized patties, about 5" in diameter.

  4. 4

    Cook the Patties

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.

    Add patties to hot pan. Cook until browned on one side, 4-6 minutes.

    Flip patties. Cook, 2 minutes.

    Evenly spread pimiento cheese on patties. Cover with lid. Cook until cheese has melted and beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 2-4 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Transfer patties to a plate. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  5. 5

    Toast Buns and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook burgers to medium heat.

    Add buns to hot, dry pan and toast until browned, 1-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping bottom bun with remaining mayonnaise, patty, arugula, and top bun. Bon appétit!
