Pimento Cheese Burgers with Grilled Jalapeños

Our pimento cheese spread is so versatile and delicious that we like to keep it on hand at all times. In this recipe, we spread it on hot-off-the-grill Market fresh ground burgers on toasty Market Bakery buns. Try the pimento cheese on sandwiches, mixed into pasta, on baked potatoes, or simply as is with crisp vegetable crudité and crackers.
