B & G Breakfast Smash Burger
All Things Barbecue
Chef Tom fires up the Le Griddle Stainless Steel Teppanyaki Grill for these B&G Breakfast Smash Burgers, that transform biscuits and gravy into burger form.
- Burger patty:
- 1/2 lb ground pork
- 1/2 lb Creekstone Farms Brisket Blend Ground Beef
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp Jacobsen Salt Co. Black Garlic Salt
- 1 tbsp Noble Saltworks Bourbon Barrel Smoked Black Pepper
- 1 tbsp fresh sage, minced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- For the gravy:
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 tbsp flour
- 1 tsp Cattleman’s Grill Trail Dust All Purpose Seasoning
- 1 cup half and half
- 3/4 cup sharp cheddar, shredded
- 3 eggs
- 3 brioche burger buns
- Spray Duck Fat, as needed
- Cattleman’s Grill Pit Fire Hot Sauce, to taste
- Preheat your Le Griddle flap-top grill. Turn one half to high heat, and the other to low.
- Combine all ingredients for the burger patty in a medium bowl. Mix by hand, just until everything is evenly distributed. Remove a couple of tablespoons of the mixture and reserve for the gravy. Form the rest into 6 equal sized balls (about 1/3 lb each). Store in the refrigerator, covered in plastic, until ready to cook.
- Place a Lodge 8” Cast Iron Griddle on the hot side of the griddle. To make the gravy, add the reserved tablespoons of the meat mixture to the skillet to brown. Then, melt the butter in the skillet. Whisk in the flour and Cattleman’s Grill Trail Dust All Purpose Seasoning. Cook until toasted, about 60 seconds, whisking frequently. Slowly whisk in the half and half until it is all incorporated. Bring to a simmer and allow to thicken. Remove from the griddle.
- Using a large metal spatula, smash each portion of burger into the hot side of the griddle surface, pressing until the burger is very thin and wider than the diameter of the buns.
- At the same time, spray the cooler half of the grill with Spray Duck Fat. Place the cut sides of the burger buns on the griddle to toast.
- Flip the burgers when seared and browned. Immediately top with shredded cheddar cheese to melt into the burger patties. Spoon a couple of tablespoons of the cream gravy over each patty. When the bottoms are browned and cheese is melted, stack the cheese and gravy topped patties two high. Transfer the patties to the brioche buns (two patties per bun).
- Slide the burgers to the edge of the griddle.
