Smash Burgers

Why smash? The patty gets crispier, and more flavorful. The topping to burger ratio improves- and the whole experience just gets better! 
AKUA SMASHED BURGERS// with caramelized onions, cheese and "secret" sauce.
Akua Kelp Burgers (we used the kid friendly patty, so went double decker bc they are smaller) 
If using a regular veggie burger patty, we'd recommend just one. 
Pan fry burgers in olive oil, flip - then smash using something heat resistant with a flat bottom. (Helpful to coat the bottom with olive oil) . Continue to cook, add cheese when the burger is almost done. We used Chao Creamery cheese.
Caramelized Onions//
1/2 sweet white onion, sliced into rings
2-3 tbsp olive oil 
1 tbsp tamari 
Splash of maple syrup
Saute onions in olive oil, stirring constantly until soft. Add a splash of tamari and maple syrup and cook them until completely soft and sticky! 
"Secret" Sauce// 
Most house sauces are some version of a thousand island dressing. This is ours. 
1/4 cup vegan mayo (love Follow Your Heart with Avocado Oil) 
1/4 cup ketchup 
2 tbsp white or champagne vinegar 
About 1/4 cup dill pickles, chopped - or a few tablespoons of relish 
Whisk all ingredients together. 
You know how it goes! Warm buns, and layer burger with onions and sauce. Smash a little more before serving. 
Make as many as you want. The extra sauce is good on anything.
