I don’t know what has been up with me lately, it’s as if one day i woke up and a switch suddenly turned on in my brain and all of a sudden, all i wanted to eat was meat. Not cake, not chocolate, not fruits. MEAT.
And not just any meat –– because knowing my bratty and demanding ass that just won’t do –– i want burgers. It’s not a one time craving either. I want burgers for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, and dessert. I mean, you gotta admit that this is slowly going into the cuckoo territory. No sane person just wakes up one day and started craving burgers for 3 meals.
Okay, sorry. I’ll stop with the terrible meat puns. Hehe.
Anyways, in hopes to be curb my sudden hunger and desire for burgers, at the same time wanting to make it healthy and not-too-pimple-inducing, I decided that i’m going to give making my own krabby patty a go. And what do you know, this homemade burger and mashed potatoes recipe turned out to be such a success that i ate it for two days straight!

Additional note :
- For the patty, feel free to opt out for the thyme and cayenne pepper as the smell of thyme and the spice from cayenne is not for everyone.
- In the picture, i used perilla leaves as it has been known to have a lot of health benefits. However, the taste of perilla leaves is quite strong compared to lettuce and might offset the taste of the burger.
- Feel free to also top your burger with a sunny side up egg –– however be forewarned that it will be very messy to eat.
- As for the potatoes, peeling it is optional. Actually, eating the potato with skin is much better for our health seeing as about half of a medium potato’s fiber is from the skin.
- You can also add some frozen peas into the mashed potatoes for added fiber, flavor and “crunch”.
