All burgers deserve a little bacon and cheese. But an extraordinary burger deserves homemade pimiento cheese and bacon jam. Spoil your Steakhouse Elite Kobe-CraftedⓇ burger with toppings as robust and flavorful as the patty you put them on. These simple recipes for pimiento cheese and bacon jam are impressive, yet easy, and the perfect way to elevate a tasty burger to something unreal!
Homemade Pimiento Cheese
1/2t Cayenne powder
1C Roasted red peppers (drained and diced)
12oz Extra-sharp white Cheddar, coarsely grated
12oz extra-sharp yellow Cheddar, coarsely grated
Salt and pepper to taste
In a medium bowl, mix together mayonnaise, cayenne, salt and pepper (about 1/2 teaspoon each). Add the red peppers, white Cheddar and yellow Cheddar and gently fold until combined. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before using.
Homemade Bacon Jam
1 lb Bacon (cut into 1" pieces)
1 White onion (finely chopped)
4 Shallots (minced)
2 Garlic cloves (minced)
1/2C Brown sugar
1/4C Maple syrup
1/3C Apple cider vinegar
1t Chili powder
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, cook bacon until crispy. Drain and place bacon on a paper plate or paper towels, reserving about 1 tablespoon of bacon grease in the pan.
Reduce heat to medium-low and add onion and shallots to the pan and cook. Stir often until onions are caramelized.
Once caramelized, add garlic, brown sugar, maple syrup, vinegar, chili powder and cooked bacon. Bring mixture to a simmer then reduce heat to low. Cook until the liquid has reduced and thickened and the onions are jammy, about five to 10 minutes.
Allow mixture to cool and transfer to a jar and refrigerate until ready to use.
