This is fantastic! I had trouble with the bacon jam, it cooled and hardened into a toffee-like candy bacon. The next time I doubled the liquid ingredients and cooked it only 3 min. and served it up hot. That worked for me.
These were absolutely delicious! The bacon jam is amazing! I made these into small/medium size sliders with a pretzel slider bun. Otherwise I followed everything exactly. Make these at your next summer picnic and you won't regret it.
The bacon jam is something that should be made in bulk and be on hand at all time. The pimento cheese is different than the southern standard in a good way. The was definitely cheese leftover for that grilled cheese suggested in the recipe. This is a great combination with the burger. We served it on soft onion buns with a salad. We grilled the burgers. Good meal.
Here at Oxford Canteen in Oxford, MS, we have been doing this but with a Griddled All-Beef hotdog for years. We top it with shredded cheddar and fried onions. Check it out www.oxfordcanteen.com
Made these and they were great... the bacon jam gives it a little bit of sweetness that helps cut through the creaminess of the pimento cheese (don't forget the pickles). My husband is a basic burger kind of guy and he complimented this meal several times. Wouldn't hesitate to make this recipe again...
