So recently we purchased a Blackstone Griddle to see what all the hype was about. Well, I am happy to report we are head over heels in love with this thing! So stay tuned for more recipes because we have already cooked so much that I want to share with you.

Today, it’s all about the homemade smash burgers though. They are simple to make, taste amazing, and are just as good or better than what you can get at a restaurant.

πŸ” Ingredients

  • Ground Beef
  • Seasonings of your choice, I used salt and pepper only
  • Butter
  • Cheese Slices
  • Toppings: Lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles, or anything else you like

⏲️ Directions

1. Preheat the Blackstone Griddle to medium-high.

2. Put ground beef into 1/4 or 1/3 measuring cup. (you can make them bigger or smaller if you want, but that is the sizes we like) Don’t press down on it. It needs to be loosely packed. Carefully, shape them into a ball with your hands. Do this lightly and be sure not to pack them.

3. Use a stick of butter and butter the griddle. (or use your favorite oil)

4. Take the burger balls and place them on the hot griddle. Let them sizzle for 3-4 minutes. Take a very large spatula and press the burgers flat.

NOTE: You can also use a piece of parchment paper on top of the burger if you want so it doesn’t stick to the spatula. Or spray the spatula with some non-stick spray or grease with butter.

5. Season the burgers as you desire. Let them cook until the bottom side has turned brown and crispy, then flip over. This usually takes around 5 minutes. This will vary depending on how high your heat is.

6. After flipping, continue cooking for 3-5 minutes or until they reach your desired doneness. Add a piece of cheese and let it melt.

7. After you flip the burgers, butter the griddle and add your buns. Brown them until they reach the toastiness you like.

8. Put together your smash burgers and DEVOUR!

πŸ… Recipe FAQs

Can I use different meat?

Sure! We love ground beef for the smash burgers, so that is what we always reach for. You could also use ground turkey or chicken too. Keep in mind, that whatever you use is going to taste differently than traditional ground beef.

What can I top the burger with?

You can add anything you want! Bacon, ham, fried eggs, hash browns, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, guacamole, the list goes on. Don’t be afraid to add all your favorite toppings.

What size of Blackstone Griddle do I need?

So, we have the 36″ because we love to entertain and make tons of food. If you are just feeding a couple of people you can easily get by with a smaller griddle. They also have Blackstone Grills that are easily transportable to take to the lake with you!

How much meat do I need?

When making this smash burger recipe, I sort of left that open for you. We used 1 1/2 pounds and made 6 1/4 pound hamburgers. However, you can easily adjust the amount based on how many you need.
