Still Enjoying the Blackstone Griddle... Smash Burgers

The weather doesn't always cooperate but when it's nice enough outside, I like to fire up the Blackstone griddle. I've got it set up on my back deck, right outside of the kitchen door. Comes in really handy!
Made some onion smash burgers recently.. started with the bacon and sliced onions..

added balls of beef...

I let the beef rounds go for awhile before smashing flat..

The idea is to get a good "crust" on the burger...

When the onions are halfway tender, I top the burger patties...

Then flip em over to cook the bottom...

I sprinkled these with my cold smoked salt, pepper, garlic blend....

Toasted my buns....

I had my eye on this one from the beginning!

Topped mine with bacon...

added a lid and smooshed it down a bit. I like flat burgers.

I also added plain ole yellow mustard to mine.
Served with some of my twangy green tomatoes and supper was ready!

I think smashed burgers are my favorite kind of burger. I love the crust!
The Blackstone has been getting a bit of use this winter. I really love the thing!

Hope everyone is keeping safe and healthy. The storms in parts of the country sound incredible! Keeping you all in my thoughts.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sounds so goods! Have you ever thought about adding Tony Chachere's creole seasoning to the burgers? Really adds something special!

Hope you're having a nice weekend... Thanks for stopping by!

Looks yummy!
I have the smallest version of the Blackstone griddle and also use it a lot. My kids got it for a few years ago. They love it as much as I do.
Also liked your spatula idea, I made the same one a few months ago.

Thank you Mcfoster!
Aren't these griddles great! I've seen the smaller version... they put out a ton of food too.
One of the things I like best about them is the easy clean up.
Great about the spatula! lol I cut the end off of a masonry trowel.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
