Thickness; sprinkle each with 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper. Cook until edges start to brown, about 1-1/2 minutes. Turn burgers and sprinkle with additional 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper. Cook until well browned and a thermometer reads at least 160°, 1 minute. Repeat with remaining beef.

Test Kitchen tips

  • Want a Smash Cheeseburger? Add a slice of your favorite cheese right after you flip it.
  • The more you work the ground beef, the more challenging the burger. So use just your fingertips to form the loose balls. Don’t worry about tucking in all those loose strands that may stick out; they turn into well-browned bits of goodness.
  • There is a lot of flavor in the browning, so after you smash them, don’t move them until you’re ready to flip. If you have the space, flip the burger onto a new area of the skillet; it’s much hotter than the pan section where the burger was.
  • Using a meat mallet to press on the spatula while you’re flattening the burgers will help form them evenly and help keep your spatula from bending.
