I recently made my very own pimiento cheese and immediately knew that it needed to tossed onto a burger. It works so well and you don't need anything else on the burger at all...but I do recommend these simply dressed greens to add some acidity to this rich cheese and the savoury burger. Serve them up with loads of napkins, because this will get messy!

Here's what you'll need

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 4 burger buns
  • 1 package of greens
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 pinch of sugar
  • 2 cups grated cheddar
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 1 cup pimiento peppers (small diced)
  • 1 pinch of cayenne (or as much as you like)
  • 2 tsp lemon juice and zest
  • 3 or 4 shakes of Worcestershire
  • salt & pepper to taste

Here's how

  1. toss half the grated cheese into a food processor with the garlic powder, mayo, cayenne, lemon juice and zest and Worcestershire sauce and give a good blitz until smooth

  2. stir in the rest of the cheese and the chopped piminto peppers and give it a taste...season if needed

  3. wrap it up well and toss into the fridge for a few hours as this will thicken it up

  4. meanwhile, divide the ground beef into four balls and flatten until a bit wider than your burger buns

  5. season really well on both sides and fry them up in a frying pan over medium heat (or grill them if you like) until cooked through and once cooked, set them aside to rest while you assemble the rest

  6. in a bowl whisk together the olive oil, vinegar and sugar...taste and add more sugar as you need

  7. toss the greens in the dressing

  8. warm your buns slightly in the oven

  9. top the bun with the lettuce, burger and pimiento cheese

  10. serve them up with loads of napkins
