Cooking dinner with my husband tonight was fun. We decided to make smash burger style hamburgers. We got the recipe from Sam the Cooking Guy, one
of our favorites from YouTube. We watch his videos all the time. He is so much fun because he does his videos with his son behind the camera. The two of them give each other so much grief! It’s kind of like being around my husband and sons. I don’t know if you have had a Smashburger style burger but it is exactly as it sounds—you smash the burger out flat on the griddle and then you try to get it to caramelize. The taste is really good. The Smashburger brand has made tons of money selling these burgers for lots of bucks. Now, when my husband and I did this we used a cast-iron griddle and we were doing it for the first time. So our burgers were a little bit too big but we did buy stainless steel flippers like we saw the guys on YouTube using and we were smashing them flat. Click Here for Sam the Cooking Guy’s version.
I carmelized onions—And we made a huge mess on the stove. It was so much fun cooking with Chris--we did not have Brioche buns--but all-in-all, it was a good dinner. Was it a life changer like Sam says? No. It was tasty and salty and great--and I got my favorite--some burned cheese bits off the cast iron pan at the end. The stove was a mess afterwards. I think I would like to do it more if it was outside on my griddle on the grill--and maybe long, slow carmelized onions on the grill, too, where I am not going to care about the mess. I am not a big indoor frying fan...what do y'all think?
I prefer when my kitchen looks like that...
