Kitchen Tip : Zesty Pimento Cheeseburger


  • 4 Ounces Cream Cheese

  • 8 Ounces Cheddar Cheese, Shredded

  • 8 Ounces Pimentos, Minced

  • 2 Ounces Relish

  • 1/3 Cup Mayo

  • 1 Tablespoon Tony’s BOLD Creole Seasoning

  • 1 Pound Ground Pork

  • 1/2 Cup Tony’s Burger Marinade, Divided

  • 1 Beefsteak Tomato, Sliced

  • 1/2 Onion, Thinly Sliced

  • Crisp Lettuce, Torn and Rinsed

  • Clear


Making the Pimento Cheese:

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, or with a hand-held mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth.
  2. Add the cheddar and mix until combined. Add in the pimentos, relish, mayo and Tony’s BOLD Seasoning and beat until completely smooth.
  3. If making ahead, store in an airtight container in the fridge until ready to use. Allow to sit out for at least 30 minutes at room temperature before serving.

Making the Burgers:

  1. Preheat your grill for indirect heat.
  2. Mix the ground pork with 1/4 Cup of Tony’s Burger Marinade. If you really want to level things up, add a teaspoon of Tony’s BOLD Creole Seasoning to the mix.
  3. Form into 8 patties (2 ounces each).
  4. Grill the patties until they are cooked through, basting with the remaining 1/4 cup of Tony’s Burger Marinade 3-4 times while cooking, and the pork temperature is at 160°F.
  5. Remove from heat and immediately top each patty with a slathering of pimento cheese. Arrange lettuce, tomato and onion on the burger buns and top with a double pimento cheese patty. Place the remaining bun halves on top and serve hot.
