where the flavor is and if, you get like the lean ground beef it’s just not going to work fat is flavor if, you don’t have fat. you’re not going to get a flavorful burger the bun is one a the worst thing is no one wants like the brioche or the pretzel roll or these like sort of highfalutin nonsense.we love at bon appetit a good potato roll often from Martins if, you can find them what’s nice about them is they’re soft they’re moist or a little squishy and you’ll notice they’re not too big the bun should never overwhelm the burger the burger is the star the bun is the compliment the most important thing to remember is a burger is not meatloaf it doesn’t need like special fixings and ingredients you don’t need to put onions in and all sorts of other stuff a great burger is beef and salt maybe pepper like that’s it no more if,you want to put a bunch of toppings on that’s up to you but a burger itself is the burger itself if.


You want to do a special sauce that’s great some version of ketchup and mayonnaise and then if,you want to put a little Dijon in there a little garlic powder or some relish of chopped pickles that’s kind of up some hot sauce but there’s got to be have to have Mayo on a good smash burger there has to be cheese yes.I’m afraid there does and it has to be American cheese like yes or a million great cheese is out there but none of them melt like American cheese.
