Made with simple ingredients, and by far the best part: sharp cheese with tons of flavor.
My smash burgers put all fast food and restaurant burgers to shame! They are full of flavor and always a hit at every family gathering.

You can divide the ingredients in half to make a smaller batch or double it to make it larger
3lbs Ground Beef
Red Pepper Flakes
Ground Black Pepper
Sliced Cheese (I use sharp cheddar)
Season your ground beef to taste and roll into balls. I usually make 1/4lb patties by splitting each lb of beef into 4 balls.
Heat your skillet on Med-High. Place a ball on the skillet and smash it down with the backside of a pan using parchment paper to prevent sticking.
Cook your smashed beef patties on both sides for 3-4 minutes or until desired brownness is achieved.
Add cheese and allow the heat from the beef patty to melt it
Serve warm with your desired toppings and enjoy!!

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Reheat in a skillet or in the microwave.
• You can add any cheese you would like.
• You can also adjust the amount of seasonings to your taste. I like to add all of mine to taste.
