Famous Krystal Burgers Copycat Recipe


If you’re not from the South you might not be familiar with Krystal burgers. It’s a fast food chain that began humbly in Chattanooga TN in 1932 and quickly spread throughout the South.  They’re synonymous with their small square burgers that you pick up by the sack full. There’s no mistaking the taste of a Krystal burger with it’s signature dill pickle chip and yellow mustard.

Sadly since moving away from Georgia and Tennessee there isn’t a Krystal close by so I was tickled when my friend Lainie shared her copycat recipe with me for Krystal burgers.

It’s a Krystal burger that you can make at home and if you closed your eyes tastes like the real thing, YES I’ll have one {okay two} please.

Note: The recipe is easily doubled if necessary.

1 pound ground hamburger meat
1 envelope Lipton onion soup mix
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup cheddar cheese – shredded
yellow mustard
dill pickle chips
dinner rolls

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Into a deep sided pan brown your hamburger meat. Remove from heat. Drain excess fat.

2. To pan add: onion soup mix, mayonnaise and cheese. Mix to combine.

3. Without tearing the dinner rolls apart, CAREFULLY cut them in half. Remove top portion. Place bottom half of buns onto a sheet of aluminum foil {large enough to cover}

4. Spread meat mixture evenly on top of bread bottoms. {OPTIONAL: If you’d like additional cheese top with American cheese slices at this point} Place a dill pickle chip on top of each bun. Top with a squeeze of yellow mustard. Place tops of buns on top of mixture.

5. Wrap aluminum foil around burgers. Place onto a rimmed cookie sheet and into oven for approximately 5-10 minutes until bread is toasted {and cheese if melted if you’ve added it}
