Ingredients

  • 1  Pound  ground sirloin
  • 1  Pound  ground chuck
  • 1  Teaspoon  table salt
  • ½  Teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼  Cup  mixed chopped fresh herbs (such as basil, mint, and oregano)
  • hamburger buns, toasted
  • Toppings: pimiento cheese, cooked bacon slices, lettuce, and tomato slices

Directions

Light a charcoal grill or preheat gas grill to 350 to 400 degrees F (medium-high). Combine the sirloin, chuck, salt, and pepper gently; stir in the herbs. Shape the mixture into six 5-inch patties; let stand 10 minutes.

Grill the patties, covered with grill lid, until the beef is no longer pink in the center, 4 to 5 minutes on each side. Serve the burgers on toasted buns. Top each burger with pimiento cheese, bacon, lettuce, and tomato.

Cheese Shopping Tip

If a piece of cheese smells strongly of ammonia, don't buy it. This is typically a sign of spoilage.

Cheese Cooking Tip

Allow cheese to come to room temperature before serving. This will accentuate the flavors and aromas.
