Smash Burgers – 15 Minute Dinner – My Fussy Eater

The easiest homemade burger recipes, putting dinner on the table in less than 15 minutes.

Burgers get a bad rap for being unhealthy, but you can make your own at home with minimal ingredients and in just few a minutes aswell.

All you need is some beef mince and salt and pepper.

Cut the mince directly in the packet into 4 equal sized pieces and then season the top.

Take one of the pieces at a time and shape it into a round burger shape.

Move the mince around so that it is equally seasoned throughout with the salt and pepper.

Heat some oil in a frying pan and add the burgers.

I cooked these in two batches but if you have a very large frying pan you can cook them in just one batch.

Use a spatula to press down on the burgers, flattening them as much as possible – hence the name smash burgers!

I aim to get them approximately 1cm thick.

Cook on a high heat for 4 minutes then flip the burgers over and add a slice of cheese.

Cook for another 4 minutes.

Because the burgers are so thin they will cook in a short time.

And the cheese will melt beautifully on top!

Add the burgers to toasted burger buns with any other toppings that you like.

And they’re ready to serve. I serve them with some airfryer frozen chips. Absolutely delicious!
