Who doesn't love a burger!

Wow this fantastic book has so much choice for beef burgers, chicken burgers, wraps sandwiches and even breakfast ideas.

I cannot wait to try the bacon guacamole smash burger and the copycat big mac.

This will make you so hungry and craving for a big fat juicy burger.

You should never look at a cookbook when you're hungry…

I'm so overwhelmed because I want one of everything!

Surf & Turf Burger? Yep, please!

Peanut Butter Burger? Weirdly intrigued!

Monte Cristo? Yes, yes, and yes!

And, yes, I'm aware the last one isn't a burger, tho it could be. Can we put in a request for the next cookbook?

But the beauty of this particular book is that it takes you on an adventure with several classic sandwich recipes added in.

If you're a fan of bread concoctions, this is the cookbook for you.

This is a great and unconventional collection of smashed burgers, sandwiches, paninis and pressed wraps. The combination tend to be fun and interesting, if not unconventional at times. Bacon and peanut butter don't really sound like an appetizing mix but to each their own. Otherwise, these are great meal ideas and there is even a section for breakfast recipes. It is an enjoyable collection of recipes.

This book is right up my street!!

The photography in this book is spot on! Makes every item of food look amazing, and makes me want to eat it! There is not one dudd in here. I just wish there was more photography... ideally for each burger/sandwich mentioned.

I thought the 'copycat' sauce idea was brilliant, and although i haven't yet tried it myself I can't wait to try the big mac version!

Really great ideas in here!

Delish hamburgers that are classic, fresh, unique, original, and some instant favorites. Awesome book to keep handy for summer.

What more can I say than yummmmmmmm.?

Great recipes for my favourite food and the cheesier the better. So. Many. Choices. And not just burgers, many sandwiches are involved. This book would make Joey Tribianni proud and his tummy full.

Delicious copy cats that are doable and so yummy! I have always been a little worried to attempt these because they seem overwhelming. But these made it so easy and had delicious alternatives and different recipes, for every meal, including breakfast!~

I started salivating just thinking about this book. And then I saw the pictures and was suddenly starving. There are some really interesting recipes in here. The first ones I'm going to try are the Asian-inspired Smash Burger and the pressed chicken street quesadilla.

Also, some really useful tips throughout such as cleaning the griddle.

I'm hungry...

Thanks to NetGalley and the Walton's for the ARC!

Smash burgers are all the rage right now. I've been hearing about them everywhere but didn't know what they were. This book does a good job of explaining the basics and I love when a cookbook provides necessary tools and pantry staples. I personally don't eat meat but can easily adapt these recipes using a non meat alternative. I especially liked the surf n turf burger. I think I will have to try that one. Such an interesting combo. I love that the book has lots of photos as well.

Unhappily the urger portion of the book is rather a one-trick pony. Every burger and chicken recipe has the same instructions for grilling the bus and for cooking the burgers or chicken. As if this weren't bad enough, too many of the recipes use the same toppings (lettuce and tomato) and cheese (American). This book is a perfect example of the adage that just because you can doesn't mean you should.

Warning! Reading this book will make you every hungry! Each recipe sounded yummier than the last. I enjoyed seeing the photos of the smashed burgers throughout the book. I cannot wait to start trying to make a few of these recipes. This book is a must have for any burger lover in your life!

Smash burgers are definitely enjoying a 'moment' currently and it's trend I can get behind, especially with all of the variety and delicious recipes in Smashed! I like the inclusion of classics to quirky twist, that will give a recipe for everyone. It's helpful to have the equipment list at the start as I definitely will need some of these to cook these dishes perfectly. I can't wait to make the Hawaiian teriyaki burger for sure!

WOW! That was my first thought when I received this book.

I didn’t know that there were so many ways/recipes for making burgers! I’m definitely trying some recipes asap!

This would be a perfect gift for my loved one.

Thank you Quarto Publishing Group, the author and Netgalley for providing me with this copy. All opinions are my own.

I never knew you could make burgers so many different ways! Cannot wait for summer to roll around so we can do some grilling and try more of these recipes!
Amazing pictures! Great Instructions! Wonderful ideas!

I love these recipes. I appreciate the sauce recipes throughout as well, instead of separate sections. I can’t wait to try these out at home. We love burgers and love having new recipes or topping ideas. The breakfast burrito sounds amazing as well. This is perfect for a spring/summer cookbook!
Only complaint - not enough photographs! While many look the same, I still love pictures in my cookbooks!

This is a book you can just drool over the pictures! Who doesn’t love burgers or wraps? You are given so many variations and even given ideas on sauces and fillings that you will be happy for many quick meals to come. Just give it a try you won’t regret it.
Thank you NetGalley and (publisher) for sending this book for review consideration. All opinions are my own.

5 stars
I was just recently introduced to smash burgers (though I refer to them as squish burgers). I’m not sure what sets them apart from regular burgers, but damn are the good! Anyhow, I love this cookbook! The ingredient lists are manageable, and the directions nice and easy to follow. I love the layout, and all of the amazingly appetizing pictures. This is exactly what I want out of a cookbook! I also like that they gave credit to a few of the recipes.

All that being said. We tried the smashed pub sliders, and dang were they good. I can see this cookbook getting a ton of use in my household.
