Smash Burgers

This is probably the easiest recipe I will ever post on the blog! Smash burgers are so easy to make – they require minimal ingredients and little time to make. Smashing them thin on a hot pan lets the meat get nice and crispy, giving you that classic smash burger taste. Use whatever ground meat you prefer – an 80/20 ground beef will give you the perfect fat ratio.

I topped mine with some homemade burger sauce, lettuce, tomato, crispy onions, and white cheddar and served them on a toasted gluten free Schar burger bun.

Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 10 minutes Total Time: 25 minutes


For the patties:

Ground Beef (3 oz per Burger)

Salt & Pepper

Burger toppings of your choosing (ie. tomato, onion, cheese, lettuce)

For the burger sauce:

¼ cup Mayo

2 tbsp Ketchup

1 tbsp Sweet Relish

1 tsp Sugar

1 tsp Distilled White Vinegar

  1. Roll your ground beef into 3 oz balls and let chill in the fridge before cooking.

  2. While the beef is getting cold, prep all of your toppings, including the burger sauce!

  3. Heat your cast iron skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. You will know it is hot enough if you drop water on it and it “dances around” instead of sizzling.

  4. Place the balls of meat down on the skillet and press down with a large metal spatula, getting the patty as thin as possible – this allows the patty to cook quickly and for bits of meat to caramelize!

  5. Season with salt and pepper and cook for 2 minutes before flipping. Cook for another 1-2 minutes on the other side.

  6. Serve with your favorite toppings!
