COMMENT:
I work at Krystal you cook the meat on a flat top grill that you first put onion and water mixture on. After you put the onion water mix on you lay the meat then put the buns directly on top of the meat and close the lid to steam. Only comes with pickle and mustard. No...ketchup..

I actually have a question for the nutrition values. How much is a serving portion? I count carbs for diabetes, and would love to know. I really want to make this recipe. We have no Krystal where I live, and I miss it from home!!!!!

did not use the baby food. made the hamburgers really this, soaked my onions, used bullion cubes for the broth. bought dinner rolls from the grocery store, heated pan, poured in some broth, did one side of burger, threw onions done, did second side, cooked and wow. placed a roll on top to steam, layed it on place, added pickle and mustard, topped with other half of roll and wow. I was at krystal.

REVIEW: recipe rating
Other recipes I have seen have called for baby food but I just couldn't do it. I mixed instant potatoes with beef broth/stock/consume to the constistancy of baby food and that seems to work well. Steam the patties on a bed of onions and beef broth rather than frying.

COMMENT:
First of all, Krystal burgers are not exactly fried: they seem to be cooked on some kind of flat top unit... the only oil used in cooking them comes from the meat themselves.

Secondly, no where in this message does it mention that the buns for these tasty little devils should be steamed warm (as they are in the restaurant).

This person has no idea of what is a tradition of the South. The Krystal burger can not be reproduced.

Ketchup?!? On a Krystal? No way, Jose! These come with mustard ONLY! If you want ketchup you have to add it yourself. But kudos on the recipe- it actually works and for someone from the South who now lives in Canada, it actually will defeat the Krystal Kraving!
