Smashburger Copycat Recipe

Have you ever wondered how Smashburger makes their burgers? They have been kind enough to share a burger recipe that you can replicate at home.

Ingredients (Serves 4):
2 pounds fresh, never frozen, 100% Certified Angus beef
4 slices of pepper jack cheese
2 avocados
2 sliced tomatoes
2 finely chopped onions
8 large lettuce leafs
4 torta rolls
4 wedges of lime
Sour Cream
Chipotle Mayonnaise
Chopped cilantro


1. Set grill to 400 degrees
2. Place a flat metal surface over the grill (this allows you to caramelize the outside while sealing in the juices)
3. Form loosely-packed third, or half, pound balls of fresh, never frozen 100% Certified Angus Beef
4. Paint the grill with real, unsalted butter
5. Use a cast-iron grill press to sear patty and lock in juices
6. Smash the meatball on the grill for the first 10 seconds to ensure meat is seared on the outside
7. Once the juices start to percolate, flip the burger to keep the juices in
8. Grill the beef patties until they are cooked thoroughly and then remove them from the grill
9. Melt spicy pepper jack cheese on top of each patty
10. Add half of a hand-sliced avocado
11. Add tomato slices
12. Sprinkle a blend of freshly chopped cilantro and onions
13. Add lettuce leaves
14. Top with a scoop of fresh sour cream and chipotle mayo
15. Serve the burger on a fresh torta roll with a wedge of lime

Cheesecake Factory NY Style Cheesecake


For the crust:
1/2 cup almonds, finely ground
1/2 cup vanilla wafers, finely ground
1/2 cup graham crackers, ground
2 tablespoons melted butter

For the filling:
24 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
5 large eggs, at room temperature
16 ounces sour cream, at room temperature
1/4 cup flour
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons lemon juice

For the blueberry compote (optional):
1 cup blueberries
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 tablespoon cornstarch


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease a 9-inch springform pan with melted butter or cooking spray.
  2. Make the crust: Thoroughly mix together the nuts, graham crackers, vanilla wafers, and melted butter in a medium bowl. Pat mixture into prepared pan, pressing firmly into bottom and about 1 1/2 inches up the sides.
  3. Make the filling: Using a stand or hand mixer, beat the cream cheese on low until light and fluffy. Add the sugar a little at a time and beat until creamy. Add 1 egg at a time, beating until smooth after each egg. Add the flour, vanilla, and lemon juice, and mix well. Add the sour cream, and beat well. Firmly tap the bowl against the counter to release bubbles from the filling.
  4. Pour the cheesecake filling into the springform pan, shaking the pan to ensure that the filling is evenly distributed. Cook on the oven's middle rack for 1 hour and 30 minutes, or until firm. Turn off the oven's heat, and leave the cheesecake in the oven with its door propped open for 1 hour.
  5. Remove cheesecake from oven, and let cool completely on the countertop before transferring to the refrigerator to chill for at least 12 hours.
  6. Make the blueberry compote (optional): Combine the blueberries, lemon juice, sugar, and lemon zest in a small saucepan set over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Add the cornstarch, and cook until the blueberries have broken down and the sauce has thickened slightly.
  7. Serve plain or with whipped cream, fresh fruit, or warm blueberry compote
