    Make Bubble Bass’s Krabby Patty from Spongebob episode “Pickles” and
    here’s a translation:
    double triple = 6 patties
    Bossy = all beef
    deluxe = with everything (onions, lettuce, tomato etc.). Don’t forget the pickles!
    on a raft = on toast
    4×4 = four patties by four slices of cheese so 16 patties and 16 slices and 16 toasts
    of cheese (added to the 6 that make the core of the burger stacked). So it’s a total of 24 patties, toast, and cheese
    animal style = cooked in mustard
    extra shingles = extra toast
    with a shimmy = jelly on the toast
    and a squeeze = orange juice on the side
    light axle grease = with butter
    make it cry = extra onion
    burn it = well done
    and let it swim = extra sauce

    Yo, Italian tip here. Always blend the tomatoes before you cook it. The reason it looks like vodka sauce is due to all of the air in it. The cooking removes the air bringing it back to that sexy red.
