Smash burger with guacamole and roasted cabbage

The best kind of burger is a smashed burger, and this one is no exception. By flattening the meatball directly in the pan you ensure maximum crust and maximum flavor — two qualities we love in a burger. Pair it with roasted cabbage and an herby guac and you're looking at a satisfying dinner!
