Here's what a SpongeBob Nasty Patty looks like in real life

If there is one thing fans love, it's recreating and sharing foods inspired by their favorite shows and movies, and SpongeBob fans are no exception. Animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants has been airing on Nickelodeon for 12 seasons, with its first episode premiering in 1999, according to IMDb. The length of time SpongeBob has been running has allowed the show to amass a huge amount of fans of all ages and leave its mark on the American pop culture landscape.

While countless iterations of the infamous Krabby Patty (named after the Krusty Krab, a burger shop where the titular character works) have been released into the world, including a notable entry from popular YouTube cooking channel Binging with Babbish, one SpongeBob enthusiast has decided to take these fan recipes to the next level by recreating a burger that's a little more off-menu.

Food Beast states that the Nasty Patty was first featured in an episode of SpongeBob Squarepants as a means to get rid of a con man posing as a food inspector that kept returning to the Krusty Krab. In the episode, SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs, his boss and the owner of the Krusty Krab, create a burger out of the grossest ingredients they can think of — toenail clippings, old gym socks, "seahorse radish," and something called "Volcano sauce."

How one fan made the Nasty Patty appetizing

SpongeBob SquarePants fan Danny Do, who uses the handle @DannyDoIt on Instagram, posted his interpretation of the Nasty Patty for his followers to enjoy. Delish shares that instead of the gross-out ingredients used on the show, Do created a burger with conventional, more palatable ingredients to make it edible. 

To create the illusion of a moldy patty, Do crusted his turkey burger in snap pea crumbs. He used a combination of a goat cheese garlic aioli and a pea and turkey gravy to mimic the bubbling, oozing discharge leaking out from the animated patty, and topped it all with protruding swiss chard veins and leaves. For the purple, pustulous bun, Do asked his sister to bake a cranberry brioche bread.

The two burgers honestly look pretty similar in the side by side comparison Do shared on his Facebook page. As far as the flavor of the burger, the innovative chef claims his version of the Nasty Patty tastes surprisingly amazing.
