A healthy pimiento-cheese spread makes an insanely delicious topping for this easy patty melt recipe. To keep the bread-to-burger ratio even (and calories in check), look for a smaller loaf of country bread or cut large slices in half.

  1. Combine onion, Worcestershire, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Add beef and gently knead together. Do not overmix. Form into 4 burgers, about the same size as the bread you're using.
  2. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set over medium-high heat. Add the burgers and cook, turning once, until just cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes total.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat broiler to high. Combine cheese, mayonnaise, pimientos and scallions in a small bowl.
  4. Place toast on a baking sheet. Top each piece with a burger and about 2 tablespoons of the cheese mixture. Broil until the cheese starts to brown, about 2 minutes.
  • Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.
