Black and Blue Smash Burger
Lane's Black and Blue Smash Burger
Lane's recipe for the ideal Black and Blue Smash Burger is one you won't forget or regret making. For breakfast, lunch, and supper, smash burgers are a staple. Double-patty burger with brioche bread and Lane's Sorta White sauce and mix, topped with bacon, egg, and cheese.
Slice red onions and Saute them in a bit of oil and set to the side. If you are using a Blackstone you can have these sautéing on the side all at the same time.
Cook bacon to your preference. If you are using a Blackstone you can have these cooking on the side all at the same time.
Being very gentle make 8 - 4oz balls with the ground beef. Do not over work the meat, loose is good. You will not get the smash burger effect if you overwork the beef.
You can go ahead and season your beef with Lane's Blackening rub now or wait till you smash.
Heat your Blackstone or stovetop with a cast iron skillet to screaming hot (around 400 to 500)
If using a Blackstone place all the balls on the surface let them sear about 30 seconds and then smash them with a large spatula as flat as you can.
If using a cast iron skillet do the same method - you will just have to do 2 or 3 at a time depending on the skillet size.
After smashing them season them with Lane's Blackening Rub. Let cook for about 3 minutes or until the sides start to brown. Flip then lightly season that side and cook for another 3 minutes.
After your initial smash try to not keep smashing the burger over and over. You will loose all that good juice.
In the tub of blue cheese add about 1/4 cup of Lane's Sorta White Sauce and mix.
Assemble your burger with 2 smash patties, sauted onions, blue cheese sorta white mix, and whatever other items you like on your burger.
If you are not a Blue Cheese fan you can substitute with the cheese of your liking. Make sure you add your cheese while the burger is still on the grill.
Melting Cheese Tip:
Stainless steel bowl and a squirt of water do an amazing job at melting cheese. Basically, you are steaming the cheese under the bowl. Just 60-90 seconds will do the trick.
