Backyard Smash Burgers

Backyard Smash Burgers

Burgers are a staple at our house in the summer. Simple, easy, and less mess in the kitchen. Can I get an amen? So, a burger blend seemed to only be natural to this summer's line up of flavors. Peppercorns paired with hickory salt and freshly dried parsley give this summer staple a new depth of flavor that pairs perfectly with our family's favorite - smash burgers with caramelized onions and melted cheese will make your next backyard picnic or weeknight meal and smashing success.


For the Onions:

For the Burgers:


  1. Thinly slice onions, Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add butter. Once melted, add onions and a pinch of Backyard. Stir to combine. Cook, stirring often for 10-15 minutes, until caramelized
  2. Heat large cast iron skillet or grill griddle to medium-high heat for 5-10 minutes. While heating, mix burger and Backyard blend. Divide mixture into four 1/4 lb burgers.
  3. Once your skillet or griddle is hot quickly brush with oil and place half of butter on the hot surface. Immediately place one of the balls on the surface and smash it down with a spatula two or three times until it is about 1/2 inch thick. Repeat with remainder of balls. Cook 2-3 minutes and flip. Cook for 2 minutes top with cheese for an additional minute.
