Here is one for all of you out on the East Coast (there aren’t any White Castle’s out here in the West). White Castle Sliders are SO GOOD! I have only had a White Castle burger once and I loved it. I remember thinking I needed to figure out HOW to make White Castle burgers. I tried a few recipes but none of them seemed right until I found this recipe on the Cooking With Carrie Blog and I made a few changes.
These turned out so good, just how I remember them tasting! And what’s really great about them is you can have them for lunch the next day. Just pop them in the microwave whole for about 30-40 seconds and they taste just as good as the night before! You can even try freezing them, just be sure to thaw them out before microwaving so it cooks evenly.
Some people are skeptical about the peanut butter.. it adds a texture that is difficult to substitute but if you have a nut allergy or just can’t do the peanut butter, feel free to leave it out. Others have wanted to leave out the onions… again, only do it if you must! In my opinion, the onions add such a wonderful flavor that just can’t be duplicated.
For those of you who have always wanted to try White Castle sliders… this recipe is for you! We have had such great feedback with this recipe from those who have tried it and LOVED it. See for yourself!
I have eaten at White Castle again since writing up this post and I can definitely say that these taste just like the original White Castle burgers but in my opinion this recipe tastes even better because you know EXACTLY what is in them, and they don’t seem as greasy.
White Castle Sliders Copycat Recipe
- 1 1/2 lbs ground beef
- 1 envelope Lipton onion soup mix
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter (Yes, peanut butter. Trust me.
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 onion finely chopped
- 1 dozen Sara Lee Classic Dinner Rolls or the really soft small-sized dinner rolls from the bakery, sliced in half
- 12 cheese slices Kraft or Velveeta cheese slices work great
In a large bowl mix the ground beef, Lipton onion soup mix, peanut butter, and milk.
Spread the meat mixture on a cookie sheet. Use a rolling pin to roll over the meat to smooth it out.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. The meat will shrink.
Take it out of the oven and put the diced onions all around the edges, this will give the meat a great flavor.
Bake for 15 more minutes, remove from oven, then spoon the onions from the edges all over the top of the meat and layer with cheese slices.
Bake another 7-10 minutes (until cheese is melted).
Remove from oven and add the tops of the rolls (the bottom part of the rolls will just sit on the counter) and place back in the oven for about 5 more minutes.
Take it out of the oven. Slice the meat with a pizza cutter and pick up the slider/top bun with a spatula and set it on the bottom bun.
