Mini BLT Smash Burgers

Mini BLT Smash Burgers

Sometimes I feel like cheating. Cheating on my homework, skipping a set at the gym, or eating something a little bit outside of my usual healthy diet. This time, I decided to cheat with pretzel bun mini smash burgers because I was sent pretzel buns to try out and I just couldn’t say no. It’s okay to sway from your usual path as long as it doesn’t throw you for a loop. I’m right back on the healthy wagon after these…but it was so so worth falling off of it.

These little smash burgers are pure heaven. If you love a good burger, a good BLT, and a good pretzel bun… then trust me you need this little mini burger in you life… ASAP!

BLT Ingredients

I started with all of the basics. Ground beef seasoned with salt and pepper, lettuce, tomatoes and bacon. I also brought in a couple items that bring something amazing to the plate. That would be my mayo mixed with dill and garlic, and these beautiful little pretzel buns from Pretzilla.

I’m a simple cook. Since I’m not a professional chef, I have to keep things simple because I don’t know any other way. Smash burgers = simple. The thing about smash burgers is all you have to do is take a piece of meat, plop it in a hot skillet and press it down with your spatula. Flip, and smash again. Simple, and super tasty. And I also love that your hands aren’t all grimy from messing with the meat!

Cook your patties for about 2 mins each side, then toast your buns a bit in a buttered skillet until they’re a little brown on the edges. Wipe your condiment on the top and bottom bun, then stack these baby BLT’s up!
