Copycat Krystal Hamburgers

As we munched on the simple  little square hamburgers that had  a beef patty, cooked onions, dill pickle, mustard and a steamed bun, we would talk about our day at school.


  • 1/2 cup dehydrated onion
  • 2 lbs ground round 85/15 ratio
  • Morton's Season-All or your favorite seasoned salt
  • 6 American cheese slices
  • 24 dinner rolls We used potato rolls
  • French's yellow mustard
  • dill pickles slices


  • Sprinkle the dehydrated onions on the bottom of a 9X13 pan
  • Pat the uncooked ground beef on top of the onions.
  • Sprinkle seasoned salt on top of the ground beef. Place in a 400 degree oven for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven. The beef patty will shrink so don't be alarmed. Blot up the excess juice from the top so the cheese will adhere to the meat.
  • Add 6 pieces of sliced American cheese. It's important to use 6 slices because it will give you landmarks to help divide the patty into 24 pieces. Return to the oven for about 2 to 3 minutes until the cheese is melted. Remove from the oven and lest rest for 5 minutes. Slice into 24 slices.
  • Lift out each burger patty and place on the bottom of the roll. Make sure you get some of the onions on the bottom, too!. Top with a dill pickle slice. Add some yellow mustard to the inside of the top of the roll.
  • All we're missing is Petula Clark singing "Downtown".
