This is the only way to make burger patties. The burger sauce is an absolute must-do. It’s perfect for dipping French fries too. Make sure not to form patties with the mince at all. It’s the rough portions of meat on the searing hot pan that guarantees loads of delicious caramelized bits – the tell-tale sign of a perfect smash burger. Our recipe makes a double patty burger for extra decadence.

Smash Burgers are my favorite of all burger varietals. A loosely packed, thin patty is “smashed” on a hot griddle, until its edges are crispy and delicious. The patty is topped with American cheese and placed in between a soft potato bun, along with lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise and pickles. If you’ve never had a smash burger, you are in for a TREAT. I feel like in the past couple years, smash burgers have really had a moment. They’ve become insanely popular in restaurants. The best part about them is that they’re super easy to make at home.
