These stuffed burger sliders are hearty enough for a whole meal, but small enough to make the perfect tailgate munchie! They ooze with melty pimento cheese when you bite into them.
Perfect for anytime you want to grill something crowd-pleasing, these baby burgers are fun, different and delish.
The Pimento Cheese
If you use a ready made pimento cheese make sure it’s good quality, like Proper Pepper, made right here in Georgia. Of course, we think homemade is always best if you’ve got a few extra minutes. Our Spicy and Smoky Pimento Cheese is perfect for stuffing these sliders. If you prefer a little kick to your burger, this Pepper Jack Pimento Cheese is a delicious addition to these burgers!
Another great recipe using P. Cheese is our Cheese Ball with Pimento Cheese. And it’s an old family recipe.
How to stuff the pimento cheese stuffed sliders
We tried a couple difference techniques for stuffing the sliders to achieve maximum cheesiness. The most effective we found was creating a frozen pimento cheese “log” by scooping pimento cheese into the bottom of a sandwich-size plastic baggie (about an inch and a half deep) and then freezing it for a couple hours. The log removes easily and can then be sliced into ¾-1-inch thick discs.

Making the sliders
Next, make 2 small thin patties (however you typically make burgers- I just used salt, pepper, and Worcestershire) and put the pimento cheese disc between them.
Press the edges together and smooth them out so the pimento cheese is well enclosed in the center of the patties. Grill for 4-6 minutes on each side and then serve with whatever toppings you like.
Of course, the pimento cheese stuffed sliders are great with just a little piece of bacon, but even better is our homemade Bacon Bourbon Jam.
Make this the perfect all-American meal with a southern twist by making our Homemade French Fries with Creole Aioli. A refreshing side to complete the meal? How about Watermelon Salad with Cucumbers and Lime Vinaigrette? You’ll love it.

I love sliders, but mine never turn out as cute and neat as yours! Great idea stuffing the burgers with cheese. So creative!
Thanks Nicola! We did them by hand, but those little “slider molds” look pretty cool, too. I think I’ll give them a try next time.
