HELLO, best pimento cheese sandwich meets pimento cheese grilled cheese meets a perfectly seasoned smashburger! This easy burger with pimento cheese is SO good and perfect for indoor cast iron skillet burgers or outdoor grilling. I love to make pimento cheeseburger and fries plates, but these are also really yummy with homemade potato chips!
Ok, so where do we stand on grill vs indoor for burger cooking? I'll be honest: I LOVE a burger on the grill, but I'm also super partial to the consistency of indoor cooking (a nice way to say that I'm a control freak). Weather concerns, gas running out, regular "life happens" kinds of things can derail a great burger night plan, and when I want a burger I want a burger.
Enter: Cast Iron Skillet Burgers. They're by far my favorite way to make burgers indoors. Super simple, seasoned just with kosher salt, a delicious crust from a very hot pan. THEN, we top the whole mess with spicy homemade pimento cheese for a creamy, cool, sharp contrast to the salty beef.
Let's just....SAY YES to the phrase salty beef. You know?
