Smash Burger Recipe

  • Author: Cooking with Shotgun Red
  • Prep Time: 10
  • Cook Time: 5
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 4


  • 1½ Lbs. Ground Beef (80/20)
  • ½  Tsp. Salt
  • ¼  Tsp. Pepper
  • ½  Tsp. Garlic Powder
  • ½  Tsp. Onion Powder
  • 1  Tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
  • 8  Slices Cheddar Cheese
  • 4  Tbsp. Butter (softened)
  • 4  Brioche Burger Buns
  • Parchment Paper squares & Burger Smasher
  • Special Sauce:
  • 2  Tbsp. Mayonnaise
  • 1  Tsp. Yellow Mustard
  • 1  Tbsp. Ketchup
  • ½  Tsp. Sweet Pickle Relish (plus ½ tsp. of the juice)


  • Iceberg Lettuce (shredded)
  • Tomato (sliced)
  • Red Onion (sliced thin)
  • Sliced Dill Pickles


  1. In a small bowl, mix the special sauce ingredients together and set aside.  In a separate small bowl, combine the salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder.  Then set the seasoning mixture aside.
  2. Split open each burger bun and spread softened butter on the inside of both halves.  Place each half, buttered side down, on a griddle on medium heat and toast until light golden brown.  Then place on a platter and set aside.
  3. Divide the ground beef into 8 portions (3 oz. each) and form into balls.  In a cast iron skillet on medium heat, add 1 – 2 balls of the ground beef.  Then lay a piece of parchment paper on top of each one and press with a burger smasher until the patties are thin.  Sprinkle with some of the seasoning mixture.  Then add about 1 tsp. of Worcestershire sauce in the bottom of the skillet around the patties and cook until browned.  Flip the patties over, sprinkle with a little more of the seasoning mixture and continue to cook until browned.  Then place a slice of cheese on top of each patty and transfer to a plate and cover.  Repeat with the remaining balls of ground beef.
  4. Spread some special sauce mixture on each bottom bun.  Then place some dill pickles, and 2 of the patties.  Top with onions, tomatoes, lettuce, and the top of the yummy, toasted bun.  Get ready to enjoy the most delicious, juiciest Smash Burger ever!
