Instructions
  1. Mix all the ingredients for the Pimento Cheese in a large bowl. Refrigerate until needed.
  2. Portion the ground beef into 4 equal patties. Brush each side with canola oil and sprinkle both sides generously with salt and pepper. Heat a grill or cast iron pan over high heat.

  3. Add the hamburger buns to the grill or pan and toast until lightly browned, about 10 – 30 seconds.
