Spicy Double Smash Burgers

Smash burgers are so easy to make and very flavorful! I like to keep it very simple.


  • 1 lb 80/20 ground chuck (regular beef works as well)
  • 1 medium red onion ( cut into 1/4 inch slices)
  • 2 jalapeños sliced
  • 4 slices pepper Jack cheese
  • 4 brioche hamburger buns
  • 2 spatulas or a hamburger press


-You want to start off by prepping your veggies, once you slice your onions and jalapeños set aside. You might want to use gloves for your jalapeños, this way you don’t accidentally rub your eyes and have a bad night.

-After, make 2oz meatballs out of a pound of ground beef. You want to make 8 of those.

-After that, preheat your griddle on high, first lay down your onions and jalapeños get them nice and soft, give them about 1 min per side, after remove and set aside, then place your meatballs on the griddle and press down with 2 spatulas to get the patties formed. You want them very thin. Season with salt. Once you see the top of the meat get watery then flip. This takes about 1.5-2min.

-Then season that side as well. After 1 min passed add the cheese and let melt. Then pile two parties together. Remove from

-Heat after another 2 min. Toast your buns. I like to use mayonnaise for this. Then it’s time to build, you can add mustard and ketchup if you like. I just added extra mayo on the buns, then the meat, followed by onions and jalapeños.

Length of time from start to finish: 45 min

Difficulty: Easy

I cooked everything on my griddle, you can do this on a pan or skillet as well. Do season your onions and jalapeños once you remove them, just a pinch of salt will do.
