We found this article about using Pimento Cheese Spread as a topping for a hamburger and thought it was a great idea. If you are from the South, Pimento Cheese Spread is a very common item. The recipe is from Katie Workman. She used smoked paprika, but neither Laura or I like the smoked flavor very much. Feel free to use it though if you like the flavor. I admit, we have not made this yet. We are trying to pare down in anticipation of traveling back to Oregon soon, but we will definitely try it when we get there.
