Triple Smash Burger
Rated 5.0 stars by 1 users
Three smash cheeseburger patties piled on top of each other, shredded lettuce, chopped white onions, pickles and special sauce. So. Epic. And making your own special sauce is so easy, too. All you need to do is mix French dressing, mayo, chopped bread and butter pickles and white onion. Sorry In-N-Out and McDonalds, your secret is out now.
Chef Matt Basile
3 3.5oz ground beef, rolled into balls
2 tbsp white onions, finely chopped, divided
3 slices American cheese
12 slices bread and butter pickles
2 tbsp French dressing
2 tbsp mayo
¼ cup shredded iceberg lettuce
Brioche sesame seed bun
Start by making your special sauce. Finely chop your white onion and about 6-8 of your pickle slices. In a bowl, add in your French dressing, mayo, 1 tbsp chopped onions and the chopped pickles. Mix and set aside.
Shred your iceberg lettuce. Set aside.
To make your smash burgers, roll about 3.5oz of ground beef into a ball. Repeat this two more times so you have three, 3.5oz balls of ground beef. Salt and pepper the beef.
Place all three balls of meat onto the hot plancha, let them sit for about 30-60 seconds. Place a piece of parchment paper on top of the ball of meat and using a wide metal spatula or burger press, press down to flatten or ‘smash’ your burger. Repeat for the other two balls of meat
Once all three are flattened, allow to cook about a minute or two and then flip. Add a slice of American cheese to each patty and add your bun to the grill to toast, let the cheese slightly melt as the bun toasts.
To build, stack each cheeseburger patty on top of each other on your bottom bun. On the top bun, add your special sauce, diced onion, pickles and shredded lettuce. Close the top and dig in.
