This Theory Might Be The Answer To The Secret Krabby Patty Recipe

Please don't read if your name is Plankton.

Reddit user Schiavello recently commented on a thread discussing the origins of the Krabby Patty secret recipe. Their theory was intense, and also quite possible.

Schiavello's hypothesis is that the secret ingredient in the krabby patty recipe is, well... fish.

They then go on to make some pretty good points; Where are they gonna get ground beef on the bottom of the ocean? Why would Mr Krabs be so insistent on no one knowing the secret recipe? Simple: the burgers are made with fish.

Some countered Schiavello's theory, contesting it by bringing to mind the episode Friend or Foe in which Krabs and Plankton work together to make the Krabby Patty recipe.

The pair end up fighting and split the recipe in half - with Plankton walking away with the half that says "and a pinch of chum" (hence the Chum Bucket) and Krabs the rest.

This, of course, still helps the original argument that the patties are made of fish, as chum is another word for, well... fish.
