Paired with an IPA
I have been all about the grilled recipes lately. I’m not sure if it’s because the weather has been so lovely, or I feel like I need to soak it all in before the fall weather starts to roll in (we tend to have short summers around here). There is just something about slightly charred vegetables, super juicy burgers, and foil-packed cheesy potatoes that makes me so happy. It’s also the perfect time of year to really highlight those fresh veggies, and there is nothing I love more than a grilled veggie. So this recipe is definitely NOT veggie loaded. It’s actually anything but that, but this is OK. You need a great burger to celebrate this time of year do you not? These pimento cheeseburgers are one-of-a-kind you guys. Pimento cheese is obviously the star, but the burgers are thin and crispy (very unlike your normal burger recipe). Sometimes I really just want a thin burger, and these burgers really do hit the spot.
I hope you guys enjoy this recipe as much as we do! Enjoy!
Beer Normally I like to save my IPA pairings for spicier recipes, but unbenounced to most people, IPAs pair well with other types of food as well. Cheese is definitely part of this. There are some great IPA and cheese pairings out there, and pimento cheese just happens to be one of them. Pimento cheese is super savory. There is no doubt about that. You get a little bit of brininess from the pimentos and there is just so much cheese that a beer that is high in hop character really tones down the extreme savoriness. It is the perfect match.
