Grilled Ham and Pimento Cheese Burgers

Do you remember when I posted a recipe for Bobby Deen's Lighter and Leaner Grilled Pimento Cheese Sandwiches?  Well, I LOVE that sandwich and I eat it often.  Last time I made them, I had some pimento cheese leftover and there was NO WAY I was going to throw that goodness away.

Fast forward to the next night when we were making hamburgers for dinner.  I had this idea of topping my burger with the leftover pimento cheese instead of regular cheese.  Then, I thought about how good ham and cheese are together, so I threw some of that on there too.  That is how this Grilled Ham and Pimento Cheese Burger was created.

I have eaten it a few times and you can never have too much of that pimento cheese.  I know it sounds strange, but don't be afraid of it.

This, my friends, is a GOOD burger.

3/4 lb. ground beef
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. Johnny's Garlic Seasoning (or garlic powder)
1/2 tsp. Mrs. Dash Original (yellow lid)
salt and pepper
1 Tbl. ketchup
1/2 tsp. hot sauce
1 tsp. Worcestershire
1 Tbl. chopped green onions
3/4 Lb. thinly sliced deli ham
4 hamburger buns, toasted

Combine ground beef, Italian seasoning, Johnny's Garlic Seasoning, Mrs. Dash, salt, pepper, ketchup, hot sauce, Worcestershire and chopped green onions and mix together until combined.  Divide into four even portions and form into patties.  Cook on a preheated grill until done (outdoor grill or a George Foreman).  Grill the ham for a minute until it's warmed through and you have a few grill marks.  Top each bun with grilled ham, a cooked hamburger and pimento cheese.  Makes 4 hamburgers.

  1. Such a great idea for a burger, Jenn! I get bored with plain ol' hamburgers so this would be a great way to change it up.
