Straight from the vaults of the Krusty Krab, here is the "official" recipe for Krabby Patties. My kids (now teenagers) thought they were tasty and nostalgic, and the grownups just liked them, as a delicious change of pace. I served them on half pita rounds, with shredded lettuce, mayonaise, and cocktail sauce. A side of hush puppies and seaweed (spinach) carries the theme a little farther. Sponge Bob likes his Krabby Patties with peanut butter, but that sounds pretty nasty to me.
- 16 ounces cod fish fillets, cut into 1/2 inch or smaller cubes
- 16 ounces imitation crabmeat, shredded
- 3 cups mashed potatoes (I used instant )
- 1⁄3 cup green onion, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
- 2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning
- 10 thin slices cheddar cheese
- 1⁄2 cup flour
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1⁄2 cup breadcrumbs
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- In a large bowl mix the fish, imitation crab, potatoes, green onion, parsley and Old Bay seasoning together.
- Using a 1/3 cup measure, divide the mixture into 20 portions.
- While keeping hands dusted well with the flour, shape the portions into rounds and flatten them into burger shapes.
- Place the cheese on the middle of 10 of the burgers, and top each with one of the other burgers. Shape and mold the two into one larger Krabby Patty.
- Coat the Krabby Patties with egg and the bread crumbs.
- Heat the oil in a pan or griddle, and cook each patty over a moderate heat for 15 - 20 minutes, turning once until the fish is done and the outsides are well browned.
- Serve immediately.
