Smashed burger is perfect to make on a cast iron griddle since they can be used both indoors and outdoors on the grill.


  • Ground beef mixture of your choice
  • Hamburger sauce
  • Cheese of your choice
  • Tomato
  • Onion
  • Iceberg lettuce
  • Canola oil
  • Hamburger bread


  1. Form the ground beef into small balls according to the size you would like when the burger is flat.
  2. On a hot griddle, fry the hamburger bread for a minute to get a crispy surface to avoid them getting saggy by the hamburger sauce (optional).
  3. On a hot griddle, ad a little canola oil (optional), and add a ball of ground beef to the griddle and press the ground beef with a spatula or something flat until the ground beef is 5 mm flat and round. You can add a piece of parchment paper on top of the ground beef ball before pressing to avoid meat sticking to the object you are pressing with. Fry the burger for about 1 minute.
  4. When you turn the burger, add cheese on top and sprinkle a little water around the burger and immediately put a lid over to help the cheese to melt. Fry for 1 minute and then remove the burger from the griddle.
  5. Add hamburger sauce and topping of your choice and serve immediately.
