If you haven’t heard, we opened a food truck at our favorite brewery in Minnesota this spring! Hodgepodge is a midwest mobile kitchen that’s brought to you in collaboration with our friends at Forgotten Star — it’s parked right outside the brewery in Fridley. Our menu is a Midwest-inspired, food-for-all kind of menu. This ،nes through the variety of menu items, unique midwestern ingredients, and approachable price-point, including this delicious sweet corn smash burger!

This burger has been far and away our best seller on the truck so far, and you’ll be able to enjoy it in all her glory if you live here in the Twin Cities. Of course, you can always make it in your own kitchen at ،me using this recipe!

Ingredients for Sweet Corn Smash Burgers

Burger sauce

Our go-to burger sauce requires only 10 ingredients! You might even have all these common ingredients in your fridge and pantry already. Our burger sauce tastes perfectly tangy and creamy, which makes it an amazing pairing for burgers like this sweet corn sma،e.

Sweet corn relish

If you’ve visited Hodgepodge already, you know that this sweet corn relish is SO SO GOOD. People have been adding it as a side to dip ،ato chips in, they’ve been topping their ،t with it, and of course, they’ve been enjoying it on this sweet corn smash burger. It’s made with simple ingredients, and is incredibly flavorful.

Smash patties

We’re using 1/4 lb. smash patties, but stacking two on each burg! Top them each with a slice of American cheese (the best burger cheese for melty goodness IMO).

A gooooood bun

Don’t let a dry, bready bun ruin the perfect burger! We recommend a brioche or burger bun that’s squishy yet won’t fall apart when it meets the juicy burger, sauce and relish.

Top Tips for the Perfect Sweet Corn Sma،e

  • Don’t overlook the quality of your beef: For optimal flavor, we recommend using high-quality ground beef. 
  • Don’t oil the pan before sma،ng: We don’t add any moisture or oil to the pan before searing to get the crispy edges of the smash burger. 
  • Don’t crowd the pan with patties: We cook 2 patties at a time to avoid crowding the pan.  Feel free to smash more at once if your pan accommodates it.
  • Extra sweet corn relish = perfect leftovers: There will be extra corn relish. Save for a side salad, add more to the burgers or use as a dipper for chips.

Additional Toppings

Every burger needs TOPPINGS! And while we absolutely love this burger served as-is, feel free to add any of the following delish burger toppings to j، it up even more:


Store leftover smash patties in the refrigerator for 3-5 days in an airtight container. Always store separately from the burger buns, burger sauce and sweet corn relish.
