Pimento Cheese-Stuffed Burgers
- TOTAL TIME: 20 MIN
- SERVINGS: 4
- 3/4 pound ground chuck, about 80 percent lean
- 3/4 pound ground sirloin, about 90 percent lean
- Vegetable oil
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- 4 ounces shredded sharp cheddar
- 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 tablespoon mayonnaise

- Light a grill. In a bowl, mix the ground meats and gently form into four 4-inch patties, about 1 1/2 inches thick. Make a 1/2-inch-deep indentation in the center of each patty, then rub lightly with the oil and season generously with salt and pepper.
