The Krabby Patty - Fictional Food- Brooke

According to Spongebob Squarepants lore, the Krabby Patty was invented by Eugene Krabs when he was young. He perfected the recipe over time through happenstance involving his friend-turned-nemesis Sheldon Plankton. Eventually he hired Spongebob to cook his most famous dish at the Krusty Krab restaurant. The exact recipe is a matter of some dispute...

... but everyone knows that you MUST prepare it with love.

Because nobody in our house is a fan of crab, we substituted tuna. Lee made the patties using his tuna patty recipe, which includes:

3 eggs
4 cups corn flakes, crushed but not to a powder
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
half a large onion
3 cans of tuna
basil and pepper
Makes eight Krabby Patties

For assembly, we followed the instructions in the episode "Pickles," which can also be found at the link above.

2 seaweed seed buns (whole grain buns)
sea lettuce
sea cheese
secret sauce (tartar sauce)
and a sprinkle of love

Results: Although they weren't cooked by Spongebob and didn't make a dime for Mr. Krabs, our Krabby Patties were delicious! As proof, I submit a photo of my pregnant sister Lori enjoying the heck out of it. Emma was a bit more skeptical, perhaps because she felt that we had nefariously aligned with the evil Plankton in an attempt to replicate the treasured Krabby Patty recipe and put Mr. Krabs straight out of business.


  1. It looks excellent! I'm going to have to replicate that for my Spongebob-lovin' kid. The ONLY meat Natalie will eat on a regular basis is tuna-- thanks for the new idea!

  2. Looks like a tasty lunch idea.
