Ingredients
  

For Pimento Cheese

  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, use 2% milk
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt, use 0%
  • 4 ounce jar chopped pimentos, drained
  • teaspoon salt
  • teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

For the buger

  • 4 MorningStar Farms Spicy Black Bean Burgers
  • 4 burger buns
  • 4 pieces lettuce or equivalent spinach leaves
  • 1 large tomato, cut in 4 slices

Instructions
 

  • Heat grill to medium.
  • In a medium size bowl, stir together all ingredients for the homemade pimento cheese.
  • Follow instructions on the box to cook the MorningStar Spicy Black Bean Burgers, adding the homemade pimento cheese in the last minute of cooking. You want it to just slightly start to melt. Do not overcook!
  • Assemble burger with lettuce, tomato and burger!
  • Serve immediately!

Notes

You can mix together the homemade pimento cheese the night before! It actually gets better if it sits in the fridge for a night.[fusion_builder_container hundred_percent="yes" overflow="visible"][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type="1_1" background_position="left top" background_color="" border_size="" border_color="" border_style="solid" spacing="yes" background_image="" background_repeat="no-repeat" padding="" margin_top="0px" margin_bottom="0px" class="" id="" animation_type="" animation_speed="0.3" animation_direction="left" hide_on_mobile="no" center_content="no" min_height="none"]
