Pimento Cheese Burgers - Easy Low Carb

This evening I made Pimento Cheese Burgers for dinner. We had grilled uncured hot dogs with them. They were easy to make and I simply mixed in the basic ingredients found in pimento cheese and seasoned them with a bit of McCormick's Chipotle Roasted Garlic Seasoning and grilled them for about 5 minutes per side. They were simple and good. I snapped a couple photos below and included the easy peasy recipe. I've also included a small collection of side dishes that are perfect for cookout season (recipe links below photo collage). Enjoy!

Ground beef, mayonnaise, diced pimentos and shredded cheddar cheese
Sesame Seed Buns
Baked Zucchini Fries
Yellow Cheddar Squash Casserole
Baked Cauli-roni & Cheese
White Cheddar Cauliflower Bake

Pimento Cheese Burgers


1 pound ground beef
2 to 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
3 tablespoons diced pimentos, drained
Chipotle seasoning, to taste


Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl. Divide and shape into 3 patties, about 3/4-inch thick. Make a slight indentation in the center to help keep the burgers level as they cook. Season with chipotle seasoning and grill on a hot grill for approximately 5 to 6 minutes per side or to desired doneness.

I really love the way that you've been presenting your old recipes in themed groups lately. I am looking forward to making all of your "side dishes for cookout season," especially the zucchini fries and squash casserole.

Thanks for all that you do. You make low-carb taste really delicious!

Hi Marianne,

Thanks. I've been grouping some of my favorites because as I go back through all my 3 years of archives, I realize that for many new blog followers, it makes it a easier to find some of them if I bring them back like this. I must admit that it's help remind me of some that I'd like to make again soon, too! ;-)
