      Personally I like a little burn to my food. Meat especially but if you are combining meat with buns the buns can be a little burnt. Tastes amazing

    Adam is ridiculous. Swiss and others are excellent alternatives. He may prefer American Cheese but that's not a fair assessment of a perfect burger by any stretch. Plus, grinding your own icy cold beef just before cooking makes for a much better smash.

    Man food is sooo good. Isn't food great? Here's what I did this month : peeled 2-3 large Russet potatoes and cooked them in microwave under wax paper. Skillet, add one cap of Veg. oil and brown 1/2 lb ground hamburger, add one canned beef or brown or mushroom gravy to a boil and shut off. smash up potatoes with fork adding 3 tblsp of butter or butter substitute on a plate, and pours the gravy hamburger mix over the potatoes. I like sea salt and black pepper to taste...
    This makes 2 suppers for one person if you half up the skillet 1/2 lb beef/ 1 can gravy.
    Browned hamburger with canned gravy on top of potatoes with butter. Cheap and easy..... put sides along with it. Budget eating real good..... This is a budget meal that should be eaten twice a week to save money....

    A new warning about the health risks of eating browned potatoes and burnt toast draws a link between a chemical called acrylamide and an increased risk of cancer.

    She's not a very good cook. Also the "secret sauce" is probably a version of russian dressing or literally just that. Every restaurant has a "secret sauce" and it's almost always just russian dressing with like one or two extra ingredients added.

    If your "boss" thinks there's only one kind of cheese relevant to cheeseburgers, which as you point out is not even strictly cheese, I question the validity of his position of authority. How can such a narrow-minded person run an organisation dedicated to the love of food?

    Burned buns. Don’t like Americans. This video was burgers. You should be fired and sent back to run a smash burger. That is your life goal. If making 4 burgers all day is your job. Fine. If not, non-sense cooking....
