RECIPES | Our double patty smash burger is a crowd favourite that we love to make whenever entertaining guests. It’s a quick and easy recipe that tastes great. It’s comprised of two thin patties topped with cheese, onion, pickles and sauce on a lightly toasted bun.
Preparation Time: 10 minutes / Cooking time: 10-12 minutes / Serves: 4
- 480g beef mince
- 1 medium brown onion, diced
- 4 slices sandwich pickles
- 4 bread rolls
- 3 tbsp (45g) full-fat mayonnaise (we use Hellmann’s)
- 1 tbsp (15g) tomato ketchup (we use Heinz)
- 1 tspn (5g) American mustard (we use French’s)
- 8 slices of high melt cheese
- 30g melted butter
- Divide the mince into eight 60g patties.
- Heat your BBQ or cast iron pan.
- Cut the rolls in half and brush with butter.
- Place the buttered side of the rolls on the BBQ/pan for 2-3 minutes.
- Remove from the heat and set aside.
- Add the onions to the BBQ/pan and brown for 3-5 minutes. Once browned, set aside.
- Place the patties on the BBQ/pan and flatten by pressing down with a spatula. Cook for 1-2 minutes.
- Flip the patties and top with a slice of cheese. Cook for a further 1-2 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
- Once the cheese has melted, place two patties onto the burger bun, top with the onion, sauce and pickles.
For this recipe, I recommend using already sliced, high melt cheese. A normal, mild cheddar is a good replacement if you can’t grab the high melt cheese.
The best bun to use is a Japanese style milk bun, but brioche or any soft burger bun will also work.
