The Ultimate Southern Burger
Recipe Type: Main
Sink your teeth into this smokey southern burger topped with plenty of bacon, fried green tomatoes, and pimento cheese.
  • Hamburger patties
  • Buns
  • Bacon
  • Fried green tomatoes (see the link above for the recipe)
  • Pimento cheese (see the link above for the recipe)
  1. Start with making your favorite hamburger patties. I usually make mine by adding a little (1 tsp) salt, (1/2 tsp) pepper and just a smidgen (about 1 Tbls to 4 lbs of meat) of liquid hickory smoke to a tasty cut of ground meat, my preference is ground chuck. Shape your’s to the size you want, grill that piece of meat and slap it on a toasted bun of your choice, my favorite are the brioche hamburger buns – so perfect for this mouth watering special.
  2. After you’ve made your hamburgers then you will top it off with a couple of Oven “Fried” Green Tomatoes, a nice dollop of Easy Pimiento Cheese and some crispy smoked bacon which I like to make on the grill to give it a dialed-up smokey flavor. Serve with your favorite BBQ sides and enjoy!
Depending on appetites, I usually plan for ¼ lb of meat per person (for smaller appetites) and ½ lb per person (for adult sized appetites). As for the seasoning quanities, I typically eyeball the recipe amounts. Just remember that it’s easier to add seasoning later than it is to remove, so don’t go overboard with the salt and pepper.
