These quick and simple homemade smash burgers from A Cozy Kitchen feature 100% New Zealand grass-fed Wagyu beef topped with cheese, lettuce, tomato, mayo and pickles.

A smash burger is a loosely packed, thin patty that is “smashed” on a hot griddle until its edges are crispy and delicious.

If you’ve never had one, you are in for a TREAT. I feel like in the past couple years, smash burgers have really had a moment. They’ve become insanely popular in restaurants. The best part about them is that they’re super easy to make at home.

The patty is topped with American cheese and placed in between a soft potato bun, along with lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise and pickles. If you’ve never had a smash burger, you are in for a TREAT.
