  • 1 kg ground chuck
  • 10 slices cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper
  • 10 soft mini slider buns


  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tbsp green relish
  • 1 tbsp Franks Hot Sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper


  • iceberg lettuce
  • tomato slices
  • cooked bacon slices
  • pickle slices



  • Mix the mayo, ketchup, green relish, Frank's hot sauce, garlic and onion power, and salt and pepper all together in a bowl and set aside until you are ready to use it. 


  • Get out your ground beef and simply roll the meat into balls about 2 inches in diameter or about 1/4 cup of beef. Place them on a plate or parchment lined tray till your ready to cook them. (You can also measure the patties out to be about 2 oz each)
  • Place a cast iron or stainless steel pan or griddle on the stove or on your bbq. Heat your stove or grill to medium-high. You want it nice and hot.
  • Place a few burger balls on the hot griddle. Space them out so they won't touch when you smash them.  Don't wait, right away get a strong spatula or something flat to smash your burgers with and firmly smash them to about 1/2 an inch thick. Twist the spatula slightly as you lift if it sticks to the patty a little.  Salt and pepper them well. 
  • Cook for the longest on the side touching the grill first. About one minute then flip and cook for an additional 30 seconds. Too long will dry out the burger. 
  • As soon as you flip, salt and pepper the other side and put the cheese on. You may have to close the lid to get the cheese to melt enough in 30 seconds. If the cheese goes over the edges, scrape those bits up too and pile it on the burger. 
  • Add the burger patties to the buns with your favorite toppings. We like to do a double patty with these smash burgers because the patty is quite thin.
