The Snack Food That Gives Bobby Flay's Signature Burger A Serious Crunch

Bobby Flay is a chef and television personality who is known for hit shows like "Worst Cooks in America" and "Iron Chef America," via his official website. He's known for his expertise in a variety of regional cuisines, such as Southwestern, Mediterranean, and upscale American fare, per Delish. The latter is certainly exemplified by one of his most beloved restaurants: Bobby's Burger Palace, which offers the world's best shakes, vegetarian items, and some pretty unique burgers.

Diners at Bobby's Burger Palace choose their favorite kind of meat, which ranges from beef, turkey, and chicken options (as well as a veggie one), before selecting the burger's style. Everything from classic options to regional twists can be spotted on the menu. For instance, the L.A. Burger comes with avocado relish, watercress, cheese, and tomatoes, while the Green Chile Burger turns up the heat with queso sauce, pickled red onions, and roasted green chiles.

But for some serious crunch, order Flay's signature burger. It's essentially a classic cheeseburger with the addition of a snack item.

Lots of potato chips

According to Food Network, Flay's signature "Crunchburger" is distinct because of the saltiness and texture of potato chips. It might sound like a strange combination at first, but the flavors meld together into the most harmonious of bites. What's even better is that you can add potato chips atop any burger, free of charge (look for the "crunchified" option), at Bobby's Burger Palace.

If you're looking to make this kind of burger at home, Food Network recommends one handful of potato chips per burger. While they don't state what flavor or brand of chips they use, BBQ Pit Boys assures that you can use whichever one you want. And if you're looking for an even more creative way to incorporate chips into a burger, you can always crush them and mix them into the meat mixture before cooking, as BBQ Pit Boys continues. (Bonus points if you go this route and then add more potato chips as a burger topping).

Burgers are a meal staple for a reason. They're chock full of flavor and adapt well to a myriad of topping combinations. So whether you're making one at home or ordering one at Bobby's Burger Palace, be sure to add a "crunchified" twist.
