Smash Burgers

  1. Heat flat top or skillet to medium high heat.
  2. Form 12 patty balls.
  3. Place on skillet and season liberally with Tony’s More Spice. Using a grill press or spatula, smash burgers onto cooking surface. Hold for a few seconds. This is going to help the burgers get a good crust and sear on them!
  4. Cook for 2-3 minutes and flip. Cook for another minute and add cheese. Remove from flat top or skillet after another minute or when cheese is melted.
  5. Spread garlic aioli on bottom bun. Place two patties on bottom bun. Top with bacon jam and more garlic aioli.  Enjoy!

Jalapeño Bacon Jam

  1. Dice bacon and cook in skillet until browned. Remove bacon grease but leave a little bit to cook the onion in.

  3. Return bacon to skillet. Stir to combine.
  4. Add water to skillet. Simmer off the water while stirring continuously. Remove from heat. Enjoy!

  3. Wrap in foil and bake for 45 minutes.
  4. Squeeze garlic into a mixing bowl. Combine other ingredients and mix to combine. Season to taste with Tony’s More Spice.
