    To make the burgers, combine the ground beef, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, and Worcestershire sauce in a large bowl.  Knead together gently until evenly combined, taking care not to overwork the mixture.  Form into four equal patties, indenting slightly in the center.  Place the burger patties on the preheated grill and cover.  Cook, turning once, until done to your liking.  A couple of minutes before the burgers are finished cooking, add 2 tablespoons of the pimento cheese mixture and finish cooking so that the cheese melts on top.  Remove from the grill and let rest about 5 minutes.
