Real American Smash Burgers 🇺🇸

Real American Smash Burgers 🇺🇸
By CookUp • Issue #11 • View online
This week we’ll dive into the real American Smash Burger. The hamburger has humble origins as a simple patty of mixed beef adopted by Americans inheriting a food tradition from the people of Hamburg, Germany. They lodged themselves in the US as early as the 1890s. As time has worn on, the hamburger has evolved into many different types.
The Smash Burger has the Maillard reaction to thank for its existence. This chemical conversion occurs when protein and fat are subjected to high temperatures. The resulting crispy goodness is what is knows as ‘crust,’ and it is that crust which makes a burger delicious. Let’s get to it and cook up some delicious Smash Burgers of your own.
