Salsiccia Smash Burgers


  • 4 tbsp. Schnucks vegetable oil, divided
  • 2 sweet bell peppers, sliced
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 1/2 lbs. Schnucks ground salsiccia sausage
  • 8 slices Schnucks mozzarella cheese
  • 4 bakery buns, split and toasted
  • marinara sauce, to serve


  1. Prepare grill for medium-high direct heat. Place an ovenproof griddle, flat side up, on grate to preheat. Add 2 tablespoons oil to griddle and heat until shimmering. Sauté peppers and onion 8–10 minutes or until browned and tender, stirring occasionally. Remove peppers and onion; set aside.
  2. Gently shape sausage into eight equal spheres. Add remaining oil to griddle and heat until shimmering. Place sausage portions on griddle and smash flat with a grill press or spatula, working in batches if necessary. Season with salt and pepper; cook undisturbed about 2 minutes or until outer edges are brown. Flip patties, top with cheese and sautéed vegetables, cover and cook 2 minutes more or until sausage is cooked through and cheese is melted.
  3. Evenly divide prepared burgers, cheese, sautéed vegetables and marinara sauce among toasted buns. Serve immediately.

Cook's Wisdom

You don't need fancy gear to turn your grill into an outstanding outdoor kitchen; any ovenproof pots, pans and griddles can be placed right on the grates, opening up endless possibilities for boiling, steaming, frying and sautéing. The same goes for cooking utensils; just make sure they're heatproof and long enough to keep your hands away from the flame. One of our favorite cooking combos is a griddle and a grill press, which is what we use to make this perfectly crispy, extra-juicy salsiccia smash burger.
