What is a Smash Burger?

A Blackstone smash burger is small burger balls that is flattened very thin and cooked on a flat-top griddle until both sides are crispy.  Top with your favorite toppings and serve in-between toasted mini burger buns or regular burger buns.  

How Do You Smash Burger on Blackstone?

Learning how to smash your burger on a Blackstone Griddle takes a little bit of practice.  This is where many griddlers fall short.  

Some use a Blackstone burger smasher kit, others use a burger press, but I like to just use a griddle spatula along with a piece of wax or parchment paper to make my smash burgers. This smash burger recipe will become your favorite! 

How Hot Should Griddle Be for Smash Burgers?

The temperature of your Blackstone Griddle is very important.  If the flat top griddle is not hot enough, you will not get a good crispy beef patty but if the temperature is too hot, the patties will become over cooked and loose it’s great flavor.  

I like to set my griddle to medium heat and if you would like a griddle temperature, it should be around 375°F. All burgers cook differently but this Blackstone griddle smash burgers tips and tricks will help you create the best burgers. 

How to Make a Mushroom Swiss Burger

Preheat the Blackstone Griddle on medium heat.  Gather your ingredients to make your mushroom and swiss burger.  

You want to use burger that has a little bit of fat in it.  I recommend using 80/20 ground beef (80% lean).  Gently form your hamburger balls. Make burger balls instead of burger patties.

Once you have a hot griddle, place the burger balls onto the flat top making sure to space them out.  Flatten the balls in a quick swift motion getting them very thin with the back of your spatula.  

Remember, a thin patty is what you want! Use your choice of method when flatten the balls.

I use the back of my griddle spatula with a piece of parchment paper on top of the burger ball.  Some use 1 or 2 spatulas to smash the burger patty.  

Others use a Blackstone burger press kit (hamburger press).  All works, but the trick is to use wax or parchment paper in between the burger and the tool used to smash the patties.

Once the burger patty is smashed, carefully peel the paper off starting on one side and working your way to the other side until the paper is completely separated from the patty.  

Don’t forget to season your mini burger with your favorite seasoning such as salt and pepper.  I like to use Lawry’s Seasoned Salt and Morton’s Natures Seasons.  

Cooking Your Smash Burger on a Flat Top Griddle

Remember that SMASH burger patties should be thin and fry up crispy.  Let them cook and do not fuss with them.

As the patties are cooking, pick a separate part of the griddle and sauté the mushrooms.  While the burgers are cooking, occasionally flip the mushrooms.

Lightly butter the inside of the hamburger buns, place on the flat top, and heat up while everything is cooking.  You will not believe how much better these taste with toasted buns! When using older buns, using melted butter to create buttered buns will revive your bread.

How Long Do You Cook Smash Burger on the Blackstone?

Smash burger patties fry up quickly!  Two to three minutes on each side if the Blackstone griddle is hot.  

Cook the first side until golden and crispy, then flip to cook the second side.  When the patty is close to being done, place a slice of swiss cheese on top and let melt.  

Wind and air temperature will play a role in how long it takes to cook the patties.  You want a golden-brown crispy outside with a juicy inside.  

Do not overcook the patties causing them to dry out.  Burnt patties do not taste very well!  

Mushroom and Swiss Burgers Assembly

Once everything is cooked, it’s time to assemble your mushroom and swiss burger.  I made mushroom swiss sliders with mini burger buns.  

Start with the griddle toasted bottom bun.  Next, top with the melted cheese smash burger.  If making a double stack mushroom and swiss sliders, add a second cheese patty.  

Top with the sautéed griddle mushrooms and all your favorite toppings and condiments.  Finally, place the toasted top bun to the Blackstone burger stack and serve while hot.  

Smashburger recipe – Blackstone style can be made with several different variations such as classic American cheese smash burger, grilled onion and swiss smash burger, patty melt, and so on.
