Recipes: Smash Burgers

22 March 2023

Better than anything you'll find at a fast-food joint, these Smash Burgers will be your new favourite go-to when you're short on time. We love to keep a pack of Volare Gourmet Seeded Burger Buns in the freezer at all times so that we can pull them out and defrost them for a last-minute burger night. Shop online or in-store.

Gourmet Burger Buns
200g beef mince (13% fat)
1/4 large onion, thinly sliced

  2. Heat a frying pan on high.
  3. Butter burger buns and toast in a frying pan.
  4. Add mince balls one at a time to the frying pan. Smash down with a sturdy spatula until thin.
  5. Add some sliced onions to the top of the patties and press in. Cook for 1-2 minutes and then flip.
  6. After a minute add one slice of cheese to top off the patties. Let cook for 20 seconds then transfer to the bottom of the burger buns.
