Homemade White Castle Sliders



I have to say that sadly I have never had the opportunity to eat at a White Castle and sample the incredible sliders I hear so much about. I have purchased the frozen ones and thought they were pretty dang good.

I was shopping at my local bakery and they had the cutest little buns which inspired me to make Sliders! These turned out so delicious and tasty that I will be making them again and again for parties!

I checked out a few recipes online and this is what I did!

1/4 to 1/2 cup dried onion flakes

2 pounds ground chuck- 80/20 ground beef

1/2 t. seasoned salt

1/2 tsp garlic salt

1/2 tsp onion powder

Cheddar or Provolone Cheese (or whatever you like)

12- Small Sized Rolls

Evenly spread the onions on the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish or a jelly roll pan (which I used). Gently press the ground beef on top of the onion flakes. Press evenly making one giant pattie.

Sprinkle with seasoned salt. At this point you can use a drinking straw and poke holes throughout the meat. That is what they do with the original white castle sliders.

Bake in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes, carefully remove from the oven and drain the excess oil off. If you have a big spatula I recommend turning the patty over.

Return to the oven and cook another 5 minutes.

Using a paper towel, pat the excess grease from the top of the pattie.

Sprinkle garlic salt and onion powder on the entire patty.

Cut into bun sized squares.

Slice open and separate each party roll. Place bottom of rolls on a large platter.

Using a spatula lift pattie with onion layer onto each bun bottom. Top each slider with a square of cheese and the bun top.

Microwave a bit until the cheese melts.

You can of course add the condiments of your choice. These re-heat very well the next day.

My hubby always jokes that I'm the only person he knows who eats them while sober :)

They are a big after-bar crave here in MN, but we are too old for that now. They did however put a new one closer to us, so we have to get up there and get some sliders!

They look awfully good. I haven't had a slider in years. I'll have to try yours for old times sake. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

I firmly believe cute small food tastes better. Plus, you can eat a larger number of them, so you feel like you've cheated on your diet without actually doing so!

They look so cute and delicious. I grew up right down the street from a White Castle on Long Island but we don't have them down here in Virginia....They are soooo good! I LOVE White Castle and miss those burgers! The frozen ones are good but it's just not them same as getting them freshly made with some of their fries and onion rings.

Apricot Walnut Bread

My Husband bought a huge package of dried non sulfured apricots and I was sick of seeing them in the fridge mocking me.  I don't eat...
