Typically for a smashburger they use potato buns so if you can get your hands on them by all means use them. The most important part to these is getting mince that has a higher fat content, lean mince is not what you want, the fat adds flavour and creates a juicy, flavoursome burger. You can use whatever burger buns you choose, old school plain buns would be great here too. The addition of a little water at the end of cooking helps to keep the burger moist.

Heat the oil in a heavy based frying pan over medium-high until very hot. Divide ground beef into 4 equal portions, season each piece with salt and pepper. Place on the preheated pan and using a spatula place over the beef and press down to make a shape a little larger than the buns. Cook for 3-4 minutes, flip and cook for another 4 minutes until cooked through. Do not move or flip the patties multiple times, as tempting as it is, this will affect the cooking process. Top with the cheese and add a little water to the pan, cover with a lid and cook for another minute until the cheese has melted.
While the burgers are cooking add the mayonnaise, hot sauce and ketchup in a small bowl and stir until fully combined.
When the cheese has melted add the sauce to the bottom half of the burger bun followed by the burger, lettuce and top. Dig in.
