Here’s a sweet and spicy take on a classic American smash burger. Sweet chili sauce adds just the right amount of heat for a very special “Special Sauce.”
  • Combine all the sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Toss the lettuce and ¼ cup of the sauce together in a medium bowl. Set aside the remaining sauce for serving.
  • Preheat the griddle over high heat for 10 minutes.
  • Form the ground beef into 8 equally sized balls (4 oz. each).
  • Toast the buns until lightly browned, 1–2 minutes. Place on a tray and spread some of the remaining sauce on each side of the bun. Keep the prepared buns, cheese, and lettuce close by the griddle.
  • Place the meatballs onto the griddle, leaving space between each ball for the burger to spread. Use a burger press or the back side of a wide spatula to smash the burger into a thin patty (parchment paper between the press and the burger will help keep the burger from sticking).
  • Season the burgers with the salt and pepper and cook, undisturbed until the edges of the burger are brown and only slightly red in the centre, 3–4 minutes.
  • Flip the burgers and top with the cheese. Allow the cheese to melt, about 1 minute.
  • Place two burger patties on each bun and top with the lettuce to serve.
