Smashburger's Texas Burger
May marks National Burger Month, which is practically an American rite of passage. If you don’t eat at least one burger this month, consider it a letdown to your country. Try Smashburger's Texas-inspired burger to kick things off.
Separate the 1 pound ground beef into halves or quarters (1/2-pound or 1/4-pound burgers), balling them into loosely packed meatballs.
Paint the inside of the buns with melted butter.
On a large hot griddle, paint 2-4 spaces with melted butter. Place the meatballs on the butter and smash for ten seconds with the back of a heavy spatula. Season the burgers with salt and pepper.
Cook for about two minutes. Flip and place American cheese on the burgers to melt.
Place the buns butter side down on the griddle to butter toast.
When the burgers are done, place them on the butter toasted bud. Top with pickles, onion slices, tomato and leaf lettuce. Liberally spread yellow mustard on the crown of the roll.
