Bacon-Pimiento Cheese Burgers


  • 3 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (¾ cup)
  • 4 Tbsp. Duke’s Mayonnaise, divided, plus more for serving
  • 2 Tbsp. diced pimientos (from a 4-oz. jar)
  • 2 slices bacon, crisply cooked and finely chopped
  • ½ tsp. hot sauce
  • 1¼ lbs. ground beef chuck
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • 4 brioche hamburger buns, toasted
  • 2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
  • Yellow mustard, for serving
  • Dill pickle relish, for serving


1. Stir together the cheese, 2 tablespoons of the mayonnaise, pimientos, bacon, and hot sauce in a medium bowl until well combined. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

2. Gently mix together beef, salt, pepper, and the remaining 2 tablespoons mayonnaise in a medium bowl. Divide mixture into 4 portions; shape each into a ¾-inch-thick patty.

3. Preheat grill to medium-high (about 450°F). Place patties on lightly greased grill grates and cook until lightly charred and no longer pink in the center, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove burgers to a plate and let rest for 5 minutes.

4. To assemble burgers, spread about 1 tablespoon each of mayonnaise, mustard, and relish on the bottom half of each bun; top with lettuce, burger, 2 tablespoons bacon-pimiento cheese, and top half of bun, in that order. Serve immediately.
