Pimento Cheese Maiden Burger

It wasn’t until 1908 that a southern-American lifestyle magazine brought together cheese and
pimentos in a spread-recipe. The combination was a such a hit that it even pushed mayonnaise into near non-existence. Pimentos and cheese pair up yet again but in a burger! Olives, basil,
paprika and peppers are combined with mustard and a Worcestershire-sauce infused chicken
mince, stuffed with cheese, shaped into a patty and grilled to a sizzling golden. The usual suspects – onion, tomato and lettuce and a mustard-mayo ranch-spread layered with the patty
between the sliced burger bun rounds-off this beast of a burger!
