The Best Smash Burger Recipe

Bacon | Cheese | Onions | Sauce

Grilled burgers are all about juiciness, but a smashed burger is all about crispy edges and caramelized flavors. They cook in about 3 minutes, so they're a great option for feeding a crowd.

Here's what you'll need. See the next slides for amounts and procedure.

Stir 1/2 cup mayonnaise together with 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce and as much freshly ground black pepper as you like. This is the only burger sauce you'll ever need!

Slice buns and brush cut sides with a little melted bacon fat. Toast or grill cut sides until golden.

Scale each patty at 2 oz. Shape into balls, then smash flat with a spatula. Salt and pepper as desired.

Top each patty with a slice of cheese. Or put cheese on half. Your call. Add 1/4 of the onions to half the cheese-topped patties. Stack a cheese-topped patty on a cheese-and-onion topped patty.

Spread a little sauce on the bottom bun. Top with bacon and then your double burger-cheese-onion stack. Add a little more sauce and put on the top bun.

Wrap finished burgers in foil so the buns steam. Give them about 2 minutes for the buns to soften and the whole burger to kind of marry together. Then dig on in!
