Krabby Patty Recipe

krabby patty and spongebob

In celebration of Spongebob’s 10th birthday yesterday, here is the recipe for Krabby Patty as revealed by the good people at themselves. Before you bust out the grilling pan, please read about the side effects of eating a Krabby Patty below:

The Krabby Patty has a dangerous and unfortunate side effect. When way too many Krabby Patties are eaten at one time, all the fat, starch and other undersea ingredients would go to the consumer’s thighs and this causes them to soon explode. This happened to Squidward Tentacles in “Just One Bite” when he broke into the Patty Vault and ate too many Krabby Patties at once. Fortunately Squidward was only reduced to a living head and survived the explosion.

However, if one does not have a Krabby Patty after an extensive period, he/she will suffer from Krabby Patty Withdrawal.  If one does not eat a Krabby Patty during the withdrawal, he/she will whine about it for a few minutes.



2 tbsp. finely chopped onion
2 tbsp. finely chopped celery
4-6 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 tsp. thyme
1 lb. frozen imitation crabmeat, (defrosted and finely chopped in a food processor)
3/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
2 tbsp. mayonnaise (plus 1 cup for dipping sauce)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
A pinch of salt and pepper (to taste)
3 tbsp. ketchup (for dipping sauce)
1 cup of love

Start Cooking:

  1. Sauté the onions and celery in 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Add the thyme, lower the heat, and cook until the onions are translucent.
  2. In a large bowl combine the crabmeat, sautéed onions and celery, bread crumbs, Dijon mustard, mayonnaise, egg, salt and pepper to taste. Stir to combine.
  3. Shape into rounds by using a small ice cream scoop, then gently pat flat.
  4. Heat 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a large skillet. Working in batches (2 to 3 crab cakes at a time) place the crab cakes in a skillet and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. You may need to add more oil for the second and third batches.
  5. Preheat the oven to 298°F. Transfer the crab cakes to the baking pan and bake for 10 minutes. The crab cakes can be kept in a warm oven for approximately 30 minutes, or they may be reheated at serving time. Serve with a kid-friendly dipping sauce. Mix 1 cup of mayonnaise with 3 tablespoons of ketchup.

    Where can i find this “cup of love”?

  2. Where the heck can I buy Love????? the grocery must’ve sold out!!

  3. That’s why Krabby Patty is so special! Not easy to find the ingredients ok.

  4. We just ate some the other night…I didn’t use thyme, but instead I added a dash of worcestershire sauce, sauteed a little garlic, and kicked it up with some hungarian paprika and some Old Bay. Regardless, who doesn’t like a Krabby Patty?

  5. But isn’t it funny that they use IMITATION crab meat? Mr, Krab doesn’t want to eat his own species :-D I put sunny-side egg on mine and it tastes so good. Maybe I’ll try your variation too,
