Does the name “Krystal” ring a bell?
If you grew up in the South, you’ll know what I’m talking about. If you didn’t you sooo missed out.
These little things served up in small cardboard boxes were a very welcome sight for you about 1 am after way too many Miller Genuine Drafts.
Or it could have been some sort of booze concoction in a fish bowl made by your teenage friends. That made you violently vomit while your friends held your hair.
But, no matter what you still wanted these damn things afterwards. Don’t lie.
At which point you proceeded to throw up, and you subsequently showed up at Krystal’s looking like a damn train wreck. Wanting tiny burgers. I mean, I’m not judging or anything.
These little bastards were definitely a staple, and as nasty as anybody wants to say they are – they’re absolutely delicious.
And you know it.
Greasy little tiny ass onions and all.
I’ve found the secret – it’s NO seasoning. Like, seriously, nothing except salt and pepper. I tried splashing some Worcestershire on a batch of them and it ruined the entire Krystal taste. Y’all, I’m not even exaggerating.
You start by spreading ground beef out very thin using a rolling pin in between wax paper. Salt and pepper it, slice it into squares and throw it in the freezer. It’s so much easier than I thought it would be.
I used my counter top grill, and it worked perfectly. Another quirky little thing about this is adding the diced onions on the raw side of the burger and then flipping it over and adding the bun on top for a minute.
It works. Don’t forget the pickle.
