Sandwich Or Burger

The Backyard Cook's smash burgers

The beauty of these burgers is that they are super-fast, super-tasty and super-simple. The name ‘Smash Burger’ comes from the technique of smashing the ball of mince into a screaming hot cast iron pan or onto a hot plate, allowing the patties to crisp up beautifully.
