This post brought to you by Private Selection. All opinions are 100% mine.

A wonderful blend of cheese, mayonnaise and pimentos
my Pimento Cheese Recipe is perfect for burgers, grilled cheese,
as well as a spread or dip! My grandmother’s super simple recipe
is smooth, creamy, flavorful and very versatile!

Here in the Southern U.S., you’ll find fried onion rings, friend green tomatoes, friend pickles or jalapenos, chili and, of course, bacon on our burgers. You may even find all of these on the same burger! 

We love Pimento Cheese on our burgers! What is Pimento Cheese you ask? It’s a spread made with cheese, mayonnaise and pimentos. Those three ingredients are the basic components of Pimento Cheese, then there all kinds of different add-ins! 

I prefer this basic Pimento Cheese on my burger. This is my grandmother’s classic pimento cheese recipe using a processed cheese. It’s smooth and creamy and melts beautifully over a hot burger!

  1. I’ve never tried pimento cheese on a hamburger but this looks so good, I will have to try it. I’m actually a big fan of Private Selection and was happy to see this here.

    • Pimento cheese is good on anything, Matt :) I like Private Selection too, be sure to enter the giveaway! Have a great day!

  2. For the love of all that’s good in the world, PLEASE bury me in a blanket of this! :)

  3. I like both aspects of this post. Throw the pimento cheese on the burger for heaven’s sake – and this coming from a yankee :)

  4. OMG. I love pimento cheese. And any kind of cheese spread, for that matter. I almost picked up some Cheddar Jack Spread from my grocery store today. It’s similar to Pimento Cheese and it’s darn delicious. Great recipe, Paula! I want some now!

    • Thank you Julie! I love it to, I love it on crackers, sandwiches, burgers you can’t go wrong. I’d love to try the Cheddar Jack spread, sounds good!

  5. This has motivated me to grill some burgers this weekend! Wow! this looks so cheesy good!

  6. it looks delicious!

  7. I love pimento cheese even though I have never actually made it myself. But it looks easy so I’ll definitely need to make it soon!

  8. Paula, what a cool post! I love how you guys put pimento cheese on your burgers over there. We always had them on cracker growing up. Now, I’m super excited to put some on a cheese burger! Over here in Utah we do the fry sauce on burgers… ketchup mixed with mayo. Shhh… it’s typically called Utah’s secret sauce. haha.
    Such pretty photos, too!

    • I remember that fry sauce from your roasted potato post, sounds wonderful, can’t wait to try it on fries and burger!

  9. This looks delicious! I would love for you share it on my Tasty Tuesday recipe link up thenewmrsadventures.blogspot.com! Everything gets pinned and I would love to have you!

  10. Just yum! I LOVE pimento cheese. Pinned


  1. […] course, my tastes changed and now I love traditional Pimento Cheese. In fact, I made my family’s favorite Pimento Cheese, Jalapeno Pimento Cheese and The Masters Pimento Cheese to name a few and shared with you […]
