The Only Smash Burger Recipe You'll Ever Need

Last week we have shared a fantastic Parker House Rolls Recipe from Modernist Bread. Today we'll share our Favorite Smash Burger Recipe that that goes perfectly with the Parker House Rolls.

In our this Smash Burger Recipe, we decided to only use ground chuck because is a great meat to use in burgers, and you can buy it anywhere. But if you want to get ambitious and blend, say, chuck with ground short rib or brisket, we say go for it. For best results, ask your butcher to freshly grind beef for you, or do it yourself at home.

  1. Start by doing half of our Parker House Rolls Recipe. When you arrive at step 4, instead of arranging the rolls in a three-by-four-grid, arranged them in a baking tray with enough space between them so that they don't touch each other while they bake.
  2. Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium-high until very hot, about 2 minutes. While the skillet is heating, toast the rolls. Divide ground beef into 12 equal balls, pressing together just until meat holds its shape without falling apart (do not form patties).
  3. Working in batches if needed, place balls on the skillet and smash flat with a spatula to form 10 cm (4 inch) diameter patties. Season with salt and cook, undisturbed, until outer edges are brown, about 2 minutes. Flip patties, season with salt and place a slice of cheese on top of each patty. Cook until cheese is melted, about 30 seconds.
  4. Serve patties on rolls with mayonnaise, mustard, ketchup, onion, and pickles.
