  • 1 lb ground beef 85/15
  • salt + pepper to taste
  • 1 whole onion sliced
  • 5 slices yellow American cheese sliced
  • 5 mini potato buns


  • Heat up the griddle, you want it hot (make sure your exhaust fan is on if indoors as it will be quite smokey when the fat cooks off).
  • Now you'll roll the ground beef into decent size meatballs and season with kosher salt and cracked pepper.
  • Place the meatballs onto the griddle and then SMASH with your spatula onto the griddle. You want to really flatten the burgers.
  • Sear the burger for 2 minutes and then flip to cook the other side.
  • Once some burger grease is cooking off, cook the sliced onions in the grease.
  • Place the cheese on top of the burgers (use half a slice per burger) and then place into the potato buns, top with sliced onions or as desired.
