Pimento Cheese-Gilded Burger

3 (8-ounce) packages shredded extra-sharp Cheddar [672 g]
1 (4-ounce) jar chopped pimientos, drained [224 g]
2 tablespoons green onions, finely chopped
2 to 3 teaspoons ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (optional)
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
Sugar to taste (optional)
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 pound lean ground chuck [500 g]
Salt to taste
Ground black pepper to taste
4 buns

Combine first 4 ingredients and, if desired, ground red pepper, garlic
powder, and sugar in a bowl. Stir in mayonnaise, and work into a chunky
paste. Store in refrigerator until ready to use.

Remove meat and pimento cheese from refrigerator at least 30 minutes
before cooking. Heat a cast-iron or other heavy skillet over medium-high
heat. Form 4 (1-inch-thick) patties, seasoning with salt and black
pepper. Cook patties 4 minutes per side or until medium, flipping only
once. Remove grease from pan. Add buns to skillet, and warm until just
toasted. Spread pimento cheese onto warm patties or buns, and assemble
burgers. Serves 4.
