From the Test Kitchen

Pimento cheese is a beloved Southern condiment. In its simplest form, it's made by combining grated cheddar cheese with pickled sweet peppers and mayonnaise. With its irresistibly sharp, zesty and creamy flavors, it’s perfect for layering in these hearty potato-bun burgers. To pair with our burgers, we’re roasting carrot and parsnip sticks—a lighter, sweeter take on classic fries.
