Pimento cheese is a classic Southern condiment made from a simple trio of shredded cheddar, mayonnaise, and peppers. The creamy mixture is often given an extra boost of flavor from myriad spices (we’re using ground yellow mustard, garlic powder, and a touch of sugar). In some regions, it’s become a favorite topping for burgers, and tonight’s simply spiced patties and soft potato buns are no exception. Roasted sweet potato wedges are a classic, hearty side.
