While the idea of a food mash-up, frankenfood, or combination plate is not necessarily new, the TikTok taco burger recipe has captivated social media with the concept. Chef Natasha Grandi-Rue, a multiple Guy Groceries Game winner, knows about the perfect burger recipe. With these simple tips, anyone can master the food trend.

As chef and co-owner of The Kitchen, Chef Natasha serves six amazing burgers at the restaurant. From the Brie and Bacon Burger to the Philly Smash Burger, the offerings satisfy a wide array of flavor preferences.

Although the restaurant burger might not be the same as the TikTok food trend, applying chef-driven tips can make that burger even more flavorful. Sometimes knowing the better cooking techniques can make any bite just that little bit better.

According to Chef Natasha, the idea is to focus on four areas, season, smash, sauce, and customize. As anyone who cooks appreciates, a well-seasoned dish is imperative. Chef Natasha suggests that seasoning the beef should apply a ratio of 1 tbsp of seasoning per pound of ground beef. While a dish should be well seasoned, it should not be over-seasoned either. This ratio works well.

If a smash burger is preferred, Chef Natasha recommends using a heavy pan as the weight. This option will create those crispy edges all around.

Since a sauce can bring together all the flavors, Chef Natasha has perfected her sauce recipe. Combining pickles, ketchup, and mayo is the base for any special sauce. From there, it can be customized with hot sauce or another tangy addition. Also, consider placing the sauce in the blender for a smoother consistency.

Lastly, that TikTok taco burger recipe needs to be customized. From the cheese used to how it is served, every dish should reflect personal preferences. Some people might prefer pepper jack cheese. Others might like to fold over that taco. Many people might want to pile the shredded cabbage instead of lettuce. Similar to the idea of the burger bar, this food concept is all about the customization.

While the social media trend might have people talking, Beef. It’s What’s For Dinner has all types of burger recipes on its website. The ideas could inspire a whole new idea. Maybe it is time to start at new food tok trend.
