Sink your teeth into this smokey southern burger topped with plenty of bacon, fried green tomatoes, and pimento cheese.
Think of this hamburger as my house special, if you will. This is not strictly a recipe, but more of a … “try this and you’ll be happy you did” kind of collaboration between two of my recent recipes, the Oven “Fried” Green Tomatoes and my Easy Pimiento Cheese plus a fair amount of smoked crispy bacon.

- 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.
- 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!
