White Castle Sliders

This White Castle Sliders copycat recipe makes flavorful, juicy, perfect little burger bites! I remember eating them on a family trip to the East coast and could not get over how yummy they were! Since we don’t have any White Castle restaurants out West, I had to figure out how to make my own! After trying several recipes, I finally found this one on the Cooking With Carrie Blog and I made a few changes. They turned out perfect, exactly as I remembered. Enjoy this delicious restaurant favorite in the comfort of your own home.

Tips for the Perfect White Castle Sliders

  • Don’t be skeptical about the peanut butter that the recipe calls for. I know it sounds weird, but it adds a terrific texture that is difficult to substitute. It you have a nut allergy or just can’t do the peanut butter, feel free to leave it out.
  • Some readers have asked if you can leave out the onions. Of course you can, but I suggest giving them a try. The onions add such a wonderful flavor and texture that just can’t be duplicated.
  • These little sliders make the best leftovers! Pop them in the microwave for about 30-40 seconds and they taste just as fresh as the night before!
  • You can even freeze extra sliders for up to a month in freezer safe bags. Just make sure to thaw them completely in the refrigerator before microwaving, so they cook evenly.

White Castle Sliders you can make at home! If you’ve always wanted to replicate these popular burgers, this recipe is the real deal.
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 40 mins
Total Time 50 mins
Course Appetizer, Dinner, Main Course
Cuisine American
Servings 12 Sliders

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 oz Lipton onion soup mix 1 packet
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter (Yes, peanut butter. Trust me.)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 12 Slider Rolls I found mine in the bakery section of the grocery store. You may be able to fit more on depending on the size of the buns.
  • 12 cheese slices Kraft or Velveeta cheese slices work great too

Instructions

  • In a large bowl mix the ground beef, Lipton onion soup mix, peanut butter, and milk. 
    Ground beef in a glass bowl
  • 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, and 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.

    I was so reluctant when I saw peanut butter in this recipe but I’m so glad we gave it a shot! I love love love this! We prepared it exactly as stated in the recipe and I’m so glad that we did! Delicious!

  2. 5 stars
    Wow! Delicious! Was a hit with the family for Saturday Bloody Mary accompanyment!
    Total keeper recipe!

  3. 5 stars
    omgoodness!! as a jersey girl growing up on these delicious bundles of joy. I followed your recipe and didn’t leave anything out including peanut butter( yea how weird is that) wow awesome!! can’t wait to eat the leftovers.

    1. We use a half sheet pan (18×13) and the sides are about an inch high. The photos you see in the recipe instructions are on a pan this size. I hope this helps!

  4. 3 stars
    These were just ok. The peanut butter added a very weird flavor and if I were to make this again I would definitely leave it out.

  5. Tried this today…..as someone who lives in Columbus, Ohio, where the headquarters of White Castle is located and having consumed numerous sliders over the years, this was delicious. I can personally say that yes, these taste like White Castle sliders but BETTER. Thicker patty, extra onions, lotsa cheese-you must add dill pickles as they are an essential part of the little burgers. I am not sure what White Castle some of the reviewers have eaten at but true White Castle has NO condiments on them, none. No ketchup, mayo or mustard. They are simply bun, patty, onions and pickle, cheese options (American or jalapeño, sometimes garlic or smoky cheese are run as a special). For those who have sampled the frozen version, they are without pickle as they heat up to like surface of the sun hot. If you put dill pickle slices (dill relish works too) on them post nuking, that is the traditional burger. Highly recommend trying this as written-plus pickles! Enjoy!

    1. I worked in New Jersey for a year and the White Castles came with ketchup on them. It was the way they make them in Jersey. It was a long year.

  6. 5 stars
    Very, very good, but not quite White Castle. I’m 72yo and have been eating WC since a toddler, I’ve often said “You can’t go into a White Castle as an adult and expect to survive!” As a young college student, my poor husband tried them and that’s when we found out he couldn’t tolerate onions. He’s gone now so next time I make this recipe I will cast aside fear and up the onion!!

    1. I haven’t tried that before, so I’m not sure. Ground turkey is usually a bit drier than beef so I don’t know if it would hold the shape as well. Let us know how it goes if you do try it!

  7. 5 stars
    These are delicious! While they are not exactly the same as a White Castle burger, they do in a pinch. This is definitely a recipe I will make again and again. Thanks!

  8. 4 stars
    I haven’t had them but I want to know if I can freeze them.
    I definitely going to make them but there’s only two of us and I never have luck cutting the recipes

  9. 4 stars
    Wow this is really darn close and maybe better! But there is something missing even in the burp and the buns aren’t gooey. I will figure it out! The peanut butter is awesome you can’t really taste it but your mouth can feel it. Thank you for a White Castle burger in Florida!!!

  10. 5 stars
    I have been making a similar recipe for years, having grown up on Whiteys but then moving to areas where they don’t exist!

    This recipe caught my eye, with the peanut butter and milk, so gave it a whirl.

    Blended the milk and peanut butter in my bullet to make sure it was mixed well.
    Spread the onions on a cookie sheet, meat mixture went on top and then pressed into the onions. Baked as directed.

    OMG! THEE best ever, BETTER than the original, I swear! THANK YOU!!!!!

  11. I’ve eaten a lot of these things in my life, but *never* with cheese and not much since I moved to the west coast 50 years ago. The best ones come from older “Porcelain Palaces” where the grill hasn’t been cleaned in years–you just can’t beat the flavor of the accumulated residue–and the grilled onions and pickle slice.
    I can recall a time when they were 17 cents “Buy ’em by the sack!”

  12. 5 stars
    better than white castle or krystal. My only change was I halved the recipe since I only had 1 pound of ground beef and 9 buns. Also I buttered my top and bottom buns lightly and i placed a dill pickle slice on the bottom bun. Perfection!

    1. I made per directions, next time I will skip the peanut butter. I will also add a little salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce. I think it could use both envelopes of onion soup mix. Next time I will cut in half, too much for 2 people.

  13. I know it says 12 sliders but if you put the buns right next to each other you can get more. Last time it was 20. Depends how much the meat shrinks. So good. I added extra seasoning to the meat. Minced garlic, garlic powder, and a bunch of black pepper. So good.

    1. No way! The peanut butter is the secret ingredient that brings it all together! 🙂

  14. 5 stars
    Thank you. You just saved my marriage. White Castle just recently opened in my town. The line is at least an hour or more wait. I found your recipe and made these Delicious Little Burgers. Thank you.

      1. The peanut butter gives the meat a unique savory flavor that we just love! It also helps the texture of the meat so it stays together when you bake it.

  15. 5 stars
    I’m almost embarrassed to say – but I bought a box of these in the frozen aisle years ago upon recommendation of my brother in law. I thought they were “okay” even though he raved about them. But I have to say this homemade version is Da Bomb!! Wow the delicious flavors really come through. Your recipes never disappoint and this is possibly my new favorite!

  16. 5 stars
    I’ve never tried the real deal, but these sliders are so yummy! I was skeptical of the peanut butter, but it all turns out so delicious. You won’t regret it!

  17. 5 stars
    Pretty darn close to the real deal! I have tried several copy cat recipes and most aren’t even really close to the real thing. We live in Iowa so the closest thing we can regularly get are the frozen ones. These are a great alternative and better than the frozen ones for sure. They’ll definitely keep the cravings at bay until we get back to a city that has a White Castle!

  18. 5 stars
    These are great very easy to make I’m not much on leftovers but even tasted fine from the microwave the next day surprising I followed the recipe to the letter an added A little seasoning from my local butcher shop and Small sandwich buns from the deli and local grocery I believe mine turned out way better than any white castle hamburger

    1. 4 stars
      Made these tonight, they were ok but not the same taste as a White Castle burger. I didn’t like the onion soup in the meat, gave it an off taste or maybe that was the peanut butter either way these r not just like White Castle. Will try again with our soup mix and peanut butter and add my own seasoning, plus I’ll cook on a flat top and see what happens.

      1. I am using onion powder and better than bullion soup base instead of onion soup mix. Try that next time.

  19. 5 stars
    I remember having these when I visited the US!! I’m totally making them tomorrow, thanks so much for the recipe 🙂

  20. 5 stars
    Yum! These White Castle Sliders look soooo deliciously mouthwatering! I’ve been wanting to make one of this and now is my chance.

  21. 5 stars
    I’ve never heard of white castle sliders, but you just can’t beat a homemade burger. They are a real family pleaser.

  22. 5 stars
    These were so easy and so good. My whole family loved them. The only addition I had to make per my Husband was finely diced jalapenos. Awesome!

  23. 5 stars
    These are AMAZINGLY delicious!! I cooked them just as the recipe said, and my entire family (husband and two teen children) devoured them. This recipe tastes just like the restaurant’s. It’s definitely a keeper!

  24. 5 stars
    Absolute fabulous recipe! With the addition of a simple tweak, plus an addition of garlic. I followed the recipe to a “T” but I added a clove of minced garlic to the ground beef and here’s the main adjustment… I grated 1/3 of the onion and added it to the ground beef as well prior to cooking. This came out just like the Whitey’s burgers but only better! I’ll make this forever.

  25. 4 stars
    It is very interesting how “know it alls” can sell an idea ? I worked at a Krystal !
    The burgers were in a slab frozen. Take out a slab put on grill front. It was a hot
    part. After a given am’t of time (varies with a lot going on), turn over by sections (spatula was suited to task) move to rear of grill where it was warm then buns were put on,top first bottom on top. Cheese was put on as sold. as far as make up of burger we did not know exactly. But, it was all to gather. Onions were Incorporated with th meat . Not put on grill first. Mustard and pickle added at sale .

  26. This is how it’s done:
    https://youtu.be/Kjka9e_QuWw

    No peanut butter, no milk, no baking. Just steam them on a generous bed of re-hydrated onions. I made enough late night runs to White Castle while I was in college and I watched them closely. This is how they do it. This is how I do it (for the most part).

    1. Yes!!! This is why white castles are so amazing. Because they never touch the griddle. They are not pan fried or sautéed. They are steamed with the holes in the burgers sitting on the bed of onions that give off the moisture that comes through the holes and the buns on top cook the top. You nailed it. These were delicious but nothing like white castles

  27. 5 stars
    I used Kings Hawaiian Slider Buns and spread the diced onion over the bottom of the pan before rolling out the meat. After 30 minutes, I spread a mixture of dill relish and mustard over the meat and topped with American Cheese. Baked for an additional 5-10 minutes. Everyone raved about these!!! Thanks.

  28. 5 stars
    Haters gonna hate, lol.
    These are way better than white castle proper. Living in Michigan, we’ve had a steady supply of gut busters my whole life. I prefer this recipe over white castles ANY-DAY.
    I have a few tips though!! If its your first time making this, dont be overwhelmed – the steps are easy. EACH STEP I DRAIN THE GREASE OFF. That is not listed in the recipe, however, I cannot imagine how incredibly greasy it would be if you didn’t do this!! Also, after I take the cookie sheet out of the oven the 1st time, I sprinkle a little onion powder (season to your liking) and pepper on the meat. Then put it back in the oven. I leave a little piece of the meat withOUT onions – some people dont care for them, but appreciate the flavor. Just giving you some tips, thats all. Also, I buy the Deli american cheese – the finer quality cheese, you will notice a difference and so will your fam, the sliders taste WAY better.
    All in all, a GREAT recipe. I always make 2 batches because my family and friends will eat the first batch, the 2nd batch is for us for leftovers the next day (OMG these are so good reheated!).

    1. Oh! I almost forgot. My Kroger sells little brioche dinner rolls, they are delicious and perfect for this recipe.

      1. 5 stars
        ONE MORE THING: I also put “hamburger pickles” on my sliders. Forgot to mention that. IT MAKES THEM!!

  29. I have a question more than a comment. I see the nutritional info but was wondering how many sliders is considered a serving? Is the nutritional info provided “per slider”? I did make the recipe this weekend but used the Hawaiian Sweet Rolls (my sons fav) and they were delicious. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I’m so glad you liked them! The Hawaiian Sweet Rolls are the best! To answer your question, yes, the nutritional information listed is per slider. Thanks for asking!

    2. There good but I’m from the midwest where white castle is known an they have nowhere near the same taste as the castle. They are good just not WHITE CASTLE GOOD!😉

  30. 5 stars
    Wow! I am a White Castle fanatic and you wont get any closer to the real thing. Follow the recipe and don’t change a thing. If you’re a White Castle lover, you wont be disappointed. Im not sure if the peanut butter added to the consistency or the taste…or both… but do what the recipe says. Thank you for sharing this one!!

    10 stars as far as Im concerned

  31. 3 stars
    They were good but do not taste like White Castle. I grew up on White Castle. And the peanut butter was no big deal. It adds a good flavor to the hamburger.

  32. HI, i TOTALLY ALTERED THE RECIPE, BUT i STILL THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD IDEA TO COME HERE AND COMMENT ABOUT IT. it tastes awesome even though it wasn’t remotely close to what you suggested I use here and feel I should tell that to you. so who cares about your recipe. It was my first time and I decided to do something radically different and tell you that it actually tastes better than your recipe, even though I never actually cooked it.

    1. 5 stars
      I used chicken instead of beef, mushroom soup instead of onion, cashew butter instead of peanut butter, goat milk instead, and swiss cheese instead of Velveeta. LOL! No one ever follows the recipe, they always have to be different!

      1. 5 stars
        Pretty darn close to White Castles. For me, its cheaper to just go the 10 blocks to my nearest White Castle. But it was fun making these and they were yummy.

  33. Petty good. While eating from the wheel of death at work and paying three bucks for a fricking two pack of white castle I started to think that these should be super easy to make and cheaper than eating out of the vending machine.

    I didn’t use the peanut butter or the milk, but I don’t like either. I also left the meat a tiny bit thicker. Tossed a dusting of old bay seasoning on top before putting the onions on top. Used Velveta cheese slices.

    I’m planning on featuring these during my next D&D game, quick, easy, tasty and cheap, no better way to feed a room of half a dozen people.

    1. So glad you enjoyed them! Thank you for the nice comment! Glad you will enjoy them while battling Demigorgons (Everything I know about D&D comes from Stranger Things so I honestly don’t even know this is an actual D&D reference lol)

  34. My family adores these lil sliders so I’ve been making them for years, trying different methods. I’ve made this recipe and I it is one of my favorites. You guys, the peanut butter isn’t that big of a deal. I use it when I have it and sometimes I’ve just forgot to put in there…either way, they are delicious and you do not notice that it’s in there, UNLESS you put more that what is suggested and if so, that’s on you. One time I forgot to put in the Lipton soup and didn’t realize it until I was ready to cook them, so I just sprinkled a little on top as they were cooking and then the other side when I flipped. It actually works well and we like the more intense flavor with it being on top. Just an option in case you forget to add it. Great recipe!

    1. Hi Patti- Thank you so much for this constructive comment. I am so glad that you and your family have enjoyed this recipe!

      1. 5 stars
        I cooked these in minutes tonight. I was afraid the peanut butter would be over powering, but I used it anyway. These turned out so tasty and moist. I will be cooking these again. I added JK’s steak seasoning, onion powder and garlic powder. Yum ,yumhi

  35. 5 stars
    Yummmmmm! A party favorite! Make at least double the amount you think you’ll need, they disappear fast and leave ’em begging for more!

  36. 5 stars
    Never had White Castle sliders before but wanted to try them. Just used this recipe tonight and they were very tasty. Buns were fresh made this morning at bakery. But I used shredded cheddar cheese rather than slices. These were very tasty burgers. Plan on freezing half of them for future cravings. Thanks for the recipe. Will make this again for sure.

    PS,
    the people complaining about peanut butter tasting bad probably used old stuff. It takes on a ‘formaldehyde’ kind of smell when it gets tainted. So do most nuts eventually as well. And that smell will lead to a bad taste in the food, if you use the tainted peanut butter in anything. I bought a fresh jar of it today and was glad I did. When I went to make the sliders, my old jar had that bad smell. So it got thrown out. fyi

    1. 5 stars
      Made these tonight and they were SO GOOD!!! Hubs said they tasted exactly like white castle. Will definitely make again!
      I was only able to make 10 though. I rolled the meat out to the edge, but maybe I need a bigger sheet pan?

      1. Or maybe you were using larger rolls? Either way, its an easy fix! We use standard size cookie sheets.

  37. 5 stars
    Cooked these yesterday. I included the peanut butter and added some fresh onion to the meat mixture in addition to the soup. Because my son has decided that red meat is off of his menu, I actually used 93% lean ground turkey. They were delicious!

    1. Hi Karen- so glad you liked them! I love the idea of adding more onion too! I bet it really amps up the flavor! Thanks for the 5 stars!

      1. I cooked these in minutes tonight. I was afraid the peanutbutter would be over powering, but I used it anyway. These turned out so tasty and moist. I will be cooking these again. I added JK’s steak seasoning, onion powder and garlic powder. Yum ,yum

    2. I want to make this recipe, but can anyone tell me what size of cookie sheet for 1 1/2 pounds of hamburger? I know there are different sizes.

    3. We are on a low sodium diet. I’m going to omit the onion soup mix, add low sodium beef base and finely chopped onion . I hope this works. I love White Castles but they leave my ankles the size of my calves. I usually order them without onions at the restaurant anyway…no indigestion or heartburn that way.

    4. Pretty darn close to White Castles. For me, its cheaper to just go the 10 blocks to my nearest White Castle. But it was fun making these and they were yummy.

  38. 5 stars
    Made these tonight. They were SO delicious. We do not have White Castle here in GA, we have Krystals. These were WAY better than Krystal. My whole family loved them and asked to be put on the dinner rotation for the month! Not one person tasted the peanut butter. My son who eats nothing, ate 3.

    1. Hey, if we can get a 3-year-old to eat it (and LIKE it), it’s a WIN! Thank you so much for sharing! So glad you and your family loved this recipe! Thanks for the 5-stars!

  39. 5 stars
    I love the White Castle burger. Your recipe is even better! I used the Hawaiian sweet rolls when I made the burgers and they are incredible. I usually make up my own recipes but these are a big winner!!

  40. Went over well with my family of 9- stuck to the recipe with great results! (I did drain the grease before the buns went on- See last comment)

  41. 4 stars
    Does anybody drain the hamburger grease? Also i recommend for all the peanut butter comments…only use a teaspoon. I agree that it gives it authentic white castle taste..but just use a little less

  42. 5 stars
    These are delicious and have become a favorite of my husband who loves White Castle. We use King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls, I tried dinner rolls the first time but there was too much bread to meat ratio. We also use Pepper Jack cheese, he loves the jalapeno cheese sliders and I tried jalapeno cheese but it’s a little hard to find and I feel like pepper jack makes it seem “fancier”. Paired with the King’s Hawaiian rolls, it has the perfect sweet and savory combo with a little kick.

  43. 5 stars
    PEANUT BUTTER?? You know what? I’m trying it. The nearest White Castle is an 8 hour drive away, and I miss the taste! My husband has NEVER had one before, but loves the frozen stuff!

  44. I live in chicago but WC is so expensive now like 1.00 a burger. I had a friend make another recipe out of spam and onion soup mix with a pickle and cheese in top to the lil pepridge farm rolls and then you bake them and they were dead on WC just smaller finger sized appetizers. If you can try to find simething along that recipe it was a hit and tasted just like WC.

    1. Thank you for the idea! We’ll give it a try! We all live in the west and don’t have White Castle restaurants in our area, but we do occasionally travel to areas that do. We will keep this copycat recipe in mind as one to try soon.

    1. You don’t need to grease the baking sheet. The meat has enough in it that it won’t stick to the pan. Thanks for asking!

  45. 5 stars
    Spot on! We were really surprised. The first time we made these we were thought wow that is a lot of steps. After you make them once super easy and quick. We used an onion and a half instead of just one and made sure the peanut butter was a tablespoon not a heaping tablespoon. Wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing.

    1. Thank you so much for coming back to let us know how you liked this recipe! It definitely gets easier each time you make it. It seems like a lot of steps but the steps are all pretty easy.. nothing too complicated 🙂 I am all about adding extra onion, YUM! Thanks for the 5-stars!

      1. Grew up eating White Castles. Cant wait to try your recipe…Thank You….Maybe update recipe with note about pan size…Had to dig deep in comments to find info.

  46. 3 stars
    Not even close, LOL.
    I live in NJ and have ready access to White Castle.

    BUT, if you take White Castle out of the name it’s not a bad slider. 3 stars

  47. 1 star
    I remember White Castle from 1968 or so when they were 10¢ apiece—and I started learning how to cook back then too.…and I can tell you one thing guaranteed: These ingredients are too divergently strange, and calls for WAY too much sodium.

    Eccch! This recipe is too complicated. It’s nowhere NEAR the White Castle recipe. Burgers are simple, an important factor in maintaining equitable profit margins in the fast food industry. This? It’s literally a recipe for financial disaster. The end product might taste CLOSE to White Castle, but I’m telling you: It’s not bloody close enough.

    Look elsewhere for a more accurate recipe.

  48. 5 stars
    Awesome! This slider recipe is spot-on. The taste was very close to the real thing but even better. I think that’s cause my cookie sheet is small, so they came out a little thick and oh man, are they juicy and delicious. Yields a whole bunch of burgers and they keep in the fridge quite well for later. Thanks for sharing.

  49. I no longer liver where there are White Castles. We had friends staying with us and the discussion of local foods came up and White Castles was at the top of the list. When I return to Cincinnati, White Castle and Dixie Chili are the places I go even before I visit relatives. I followed this recipe to the leltter and was pretty disappointed. Too much meat. White Castles are not thick hamburgers. Too much cheese with 12 slices and Velveta was not the right cheese. Had little resemblance to a White Castle slider. Very disappointing. If I had cut the meat in half and not layered the cheese, it might have been more desirable a dish.

  50. 5 stars
    Thank you for this recipe! These are the closest thing I can get to a White Castle! I grew up in northern KY and on White Castles. Now living in FL, frozen White Castle and Krystal just can’t compare! I will be making these from now on!

    1. So glad you like them! I agree, the frozen ones just don’t taste right. Thanks for the nice comment!

  51. I made these Friday night for my family. They were Uhhh-mazing!! I could taste the peanut butter a bit but I think that’s because I knew it was there. My family made no mention of it and of course, I didn’t tell them. I used 90% lean ground beef and dried minced onion, a compromise since I like onions but my husband does not. All in all, a good copycat recipe that I will definitely make again! Thanks for sharing.

    1. So glad you and you family liked these. Great idea using dried minced onion for those who aren’t onion fans! Thanks for the comment 😀

  52. These are awesome. I’m always hesitant trying recipes using meat (we use organic, so it’s always expensive ). And then there’s the odd addition of peanut butter. But, figured we’d give it a go. So glad I did!! These are divine. I’ll be making these things in bulk and freezing them. Thank you!

    1. So happy to hear you liked them!! I love the idea of making them in bulk and freezing… we will just have to make them without eating them all lol

  53. I made these tonight. Even my daughter who basically lives in plain pasta ate them and loved them. Thank you!!!

  54. This was the WORST version of a standard White Castle slider I have made. Peanut butter?!? I tried this recipe with trepidation but proceeded in the name of science. If the OP actually has taste buds and has actually eaten a White Castle burger then they would never have released this abomination out to the public. I’m pissed and want my 1.5 lb ground beef back.

    1. Sorry you didn’t like this recipe! We have found that others have loved it– what would you change about it?

      1. 5 stars
        I guess there’s one in every crowd!
        The recipe is great; family loved it and the peanut butter only adds to the creaminess.
        Maybe it was the chef Joel and not the recipe that was the issue!

  55. Smelled great! I had just cheesed these glorious meaty lil beauties up put the tender onions on top and crowned the lil princesses up with a buttered kings hawaiian roll when my neglectful child minded **** girlfriend let my nephew reach into a 375°F oven i pushed him away before he made any contact and dropped all of my tasty sliders upside down in the oven… So i never tasted them… **** it tears families apart lol

  56. Made these tonight, not exactly like a White Castle but still delicious, hubby loved them! Thanks, printing this recipe for sure!!

  57. I am from Michigan but my hubby is in the Army and in a place where there are no white castles ????, luckily I came across this recipe and made them tonight, they were a huge hit, I will be making these again. ????

  58. I mince my onions and mix half of it in with the meat. Because I know that White Castle burgers are cooked with minced onions, I put a layer of them on the bottom before putting the meat on top of it.

    When serving, add pickle chips. More authentic.

  59. This was a great recipe! We used ground chuck, we used Velveeta cheddar slices and Sara Lee Hawaiian style dinner rolls. We were very nervous because White Castle cheeseburgers are our thing (NY)- we are now in NC and always crave WC- the frozen is not an option. Can I tell you- this recipe is SPOT ON! I wish I could share the picture- thank you for this recipe! It’s easy, simple ingredients and of course delicious!

    1. Wow, I am so happy that you liked it! Thank you for taking the time to come back and let me know how you liked them! 😀

  60. These are awesome!!! We think they are even better than the white castles and we love white castle. I have been asked for the recipe after a friend of ours stopped in right after they came out of the oven he couldn’t get enough of them.
    Thank you for the recipe I will be making them again soon

  61. They were perfect, my problem was my own fault, my bread wasnt fresh and I don’t trust my oven 🙁 But the test is almost dead on.

  62. This was really tasty! I used mayo instead of PB since we have an allergy in the house. My burgers were a little too thick, it made 9 instead of 12 but they were still totally cooked through using the stated cooking directions.
    I did have to drain the liquids from the pan at about the 20 minute mark, there was soooo much liquid from all the onions and meat that it just had to be done.
    I made a quick burger sauce using mayo, ketchup and sweet relish. Very tasty, ty for the recipe!

    1. I made these a second time and improved the recipe to suit our tastes. What I did differently was I sauteed the onions on the stove to get them starting to caramelize. I like the flavor of onions cooked this way.

      I added them to the meat then topped with the cheese and baked for the last 10 minutes or so, until the cheese was melted. This to me improved the taste. A side bonus was there was much, much less liquid on the pan while baking.

  63. I made some of these, and they came out fantastic. I have a baking pan with a plastic cover, let them sit in the fridge in that pan over night, were even better the next day.

    I did modify it a bit and use tahini instead of peanut butter.

  64. I tried this last night and it was muy bueno. I used oversized piece of parchment paper and poured off the fat each time I took out of the oven. Made the big patty about 1 1/2 inches bigger all around the dinner rolls and it shrunk down just right. Think you could do with 1 lb or 1 1/4 lb ground beef and know you only need 6 slices of American cheese or 12 slices Velveeta. Used American.

  65. We love these, I have made them several times with great results. Who would have thought Peanut butter would taste so good in burgers.

  66. I wonder what brand of peanut butter ppl r using. I use natural peanut butter and it has more of an earthy taste than say, Jiffy. I haven’t tried these yet but I’m torn between using mayo or PB.

    1. We just use regular “Jiffy” type. You can certainly try the natural, but it might come out a little different than if you used the other kind

  67. These are delicious. I was’t sure about the Peanut Butter, oh my it does make this great! So easy to make. Thank you for a new recipe.

  68. Well, I’ve tried many of these copycat White Castle Burger recipes over the past several years. And all of them were so-so at best…..until this one! Although I had to make some soft slider rolls as we don’t have them here in Western Australia, just BIG bready ones. (Oh, I’m American). And while its been about 10 years since I’ve had a WC, these were really really good. My wife, who’s Aussie, didn’t want to even try one until she saw them finished. LOVED them. In fact, I now have to make more on Thursday so she can bring them into her shop for her helper. THANKS!!

  69. This recipe is not only delicious but fun! My granddaughters and I made an assembly line while constructing. The pb really makes this recipe. Thank you for such a wonderful recipe!

  70. My family loved this but while they where eating it I told them the secret ingredient was peanut butter. ..all they could taste after that was the peanut butter and all was wasted so dont dare tell ur family the secret and they will love it.

  71. Just came across this recipe from Pinterest, can’t wait to try it tomorrow! I grew up in Kentucky LOVING White Castle sliders! Just wanted to add that the chain uses Dusseldorf mustard, which in my opinion makes the whole thing. Just found it in my local grocery store for the first time marketed by White Castle, so these are on the menu tomorrow! Thanks!

  72. These are amazing! Have been making them for about a year now and they get better every time! Great recipes and website. Thanks so much!

  73. These were awesome, I was a little skeptical on the PB but I made two batches one exactly as recipe calls and one with half the amount of PB I liked the one with half better, this may be because I use Natural PB. But these are a big hit. These are requested at parties and by my kids. Who by the way hate onions but do not question them on these burgers. Thanks for giving us the White castles anytime we want. Unless you have a PB Allergy you must try.

    1. Thank you for sharing your success with this recipe and your recommendations. I’m glad it was a hit!

  74. 5 stars
    Awesome Recipe, I’ve used it several times. The one thing I would recommend to people is you may need to drain the grease in between visits to the oven. On that note its especially important NOT to use a flat cookie sheet; meaning with no sides. That’s a big first timer mistake.

  75. 5 stars
    These were absolutely fantastic!! My hubby is such a white castle fanatic and we do not have one where we live so this makes me wife of the year! 🙂

    The only change I made was rehydrating some dried chopped onions and spreading those on the meat underneath the cheese instead of regular onions. I used the sweet hawaiian rolls. So darn good!

    Thank you for this recipe, the peanut butter is a winner! This will be a repeat in my household!

    1. GREAT idea rehydrating onions. That would make it way easier! I will definitely try that next time. So glad you liked the recipe! Thanks for your nice comment!

  76. I’ve read almost all the conments. Several people asked about freezing them, but I didn’t see any reply. So can they be frozen? and if so, how long do you reheat them for and at what temp? And should they be reheated from fozen or thaw first? I would like to make these in advance of our get together but want to make sure they will turn out if frozen.
    Please let me know asap.

    1. You probably can freeze them but we have never done it before. I know they sell sliders in the frozen section at the grocery store so I don’t see why not! Let us know how it turns out!

  77. Made these last night for my two picky eaters who seem to only like a few things to eat and my daughter doesn’t even like red meat but they at these. One a piece but at least they ate it because they usually eat much of nothing! So I would say these were a hit. My boyfriend even liked them and took the left overs to work!

  78. This may seem like a stupid question. I’m wondering why would you cook the onions first around the edges of the meat and then after 10 min spoon all over the top of the meat and cook some more? Why not sprinkle the onion over the top of the meat to begin with? It would save a step. Does it make a difference with the flavor? Also, Do you not cook the bottom part of the rolls or do you stick those in the oven too? I have all the ingredients to make these tomorrow and I want to get it just right! We used to have White Castle in southern California a very long time ago and they were my favorite! I miss them so much and I’m super excited to try this recipe. Any responses would be appreciated!

    1. It softens them up better when they are around the sides. You can add them over the top but they might get too dried out. You can cook the bottom of the rolls if you would like.. it’s not a bad idea. Usually we just serve them straight on the buns and they are wonderful!

  79. I do a very similar thing using French onion soup mix. It gives both a beef broth and onion flavor punch in one.
    PS: I now live in New Zealand so I have to resort to copycat recipes if I want the burgers.
    Q:
    Do W/C use pickles or ketchup or mustard?

    I can’t remember and I want to recreate the exact burger.
    Thanks.

        1. White Castle does not put condiments on their burgers… Just the onion and pickle (and cheese if you order cheeseburgers). Packets of Dusseldorf mustard, mayonnaise, and ketchup are available in the restaurants.

          1. You are right! If you order them w/everything they come with the Dusseldorf brown mustard! No ketchup or mayo is included w/everything.

  80. Awesome recipe, tasted pretty close to the real thing. I told a WC insider friend of mine this recipe, he winked and suggested butter milk.
    I rushed home with some butter milk, made this again and it was spot on.

    1. Thank you so much for the tip! We will have to try it with buttermilk next time! Thanks for your comment!

  81. I actually didn’t like the peanut butter in these sliders. They were good overall buy I think I would do without that ingredient next time.

    1. Thank you for your comment! We may have other viewers that feel the same way. They would taste just fine without the peanut butter.

  82. Hi!!! OMG!! This was just delicious!!! Perfect recipe, I have tried several recipies trying to get something like white castle’s burgers and this one won the price!! As i live in Dominican Republic I did not find Sara Lee´s bread, but I got some local soft mini burger bread very alike! My fiance is a huge white castle fan and he loved them!!! I have I little blog myself (www.voguecuisine.wordpress.com), and I would like to share my intake on your recipe, and also post your link so every reader will know is of your authoring, are ok with it? Please let me know!

  83. Doubled this recipe for our Super Bowl party this year, and they were a huge hit! We are from the South and currently live in NOLA. Our closest Krystal is on Bourbon Street…not exactly the area a local wants to venture to when a craving hits…so these were a very welcome find! They were easy to make although they do require some babysitting because you have to do a step every 5-10 minutes. Totally worth it, though, if these burgers are your thing. We added yellow mustard and dill pickles to make them more Krystal like, and we served them on Hawaiian Savory Butter Rolls. I plan on making them again for dinner tonight! My brother-in-law is allergic to peanuts, so we have decided to use a tablespoon of cream cheese or mayo in place of the peanut butter when we make it for him. Great recipe! Thanks for sharing!!

    1. PS- We love Krystal burgers so much that we had tiers of them for my husband’s groom’s cake at our wedding. 🙂

  84. Unfortunately decided to make these last night for a party instead of using my trusted recipe… The peanut butter absolutely ruined my entire batch. My recipe is very similar but uses mayo and adds shredded cheddar to pan fried hamburger instead of milk and peanut butter. My recipe is MUCH MUCH better. Sorry…but this was barely edible.

    1. Sorry you had such a bad experience with the PB… we have never had it be overpowering like that before. What brand of PB did you use?

  85. I made these burgers this past weekend. OMG! They r soo good. Thanx so very much for the recipe! Even my 83 y/0 mother thought they were “delicious!” Cannot wait to make them again!:-) thanks again!

  86. I can NOT find the Sara Lee Dinner Rolls 🙁 – I tried other rolls and it’s not the same – help!

  87. I’m a New York transplant in Texas. You literally just made my week. Thank you so much for this recipe!

  88. I was hesitant to try this recipe because of the peanut butter. I’m so glad I did. They were excellent and I had to make two batches. Will definitely be making these again.and by the way, no one commented on the peanut butter so they must not have tasted it.

  89. From someone who worked at white castles, this is not even close to the way the tasty little treasures are made. First you dont use lipton soup or peanut butter…not sure where that came from. What you do is you soak dehydrated onions in a pot of water until they are plump again. then you cover the bottom of a cookie sheet with the water and onions. (this is what gives the bread that soggy goodness) then you place your flattened burger patties then the bottoms of the buns go on top of the burger and then you place the top bun over the cracks between each bottom bun and the next bottom bun. They put in the over until done. thats it…its simple. Cheese goes on after they are done cooking and should not be completely melted like your pic shows. Tip it is better to use a covered stove top flat grill for these but the oven does just as good.

    1. I’m sure it isn’t close to how they are made, but maybe it tastes similar to them? Did you try the recipe? I’d love to hear from someone who worked there if it tastes similar, even though it is made differently. 🙂

      1. Yes, I agree. Erica didn’t claim that her recipe mimics the true W.C. recipe. However, the blend of these ingredients do create a very close similarity in taste&texture. Reminds me of the concept behind Mock Apple Pie. Who would ever guess that the secret apple filling, isn’t really apples at all- but rather, crushed and spiced up Ritz crackers?! As for this slider recipe, Lipton soup sounds a lot tastier and easier than rewetting dried up onions. Just sayin…Don’t knock it til you’ve tried it. Thanks so much for sharing Erica.

    2. I think I may try it this way with the ground turkey because I can’t eat beef and I’m a little scared of the texture adding the peanut butter to turkey. May not have the same result.

  90. Yum!! These are delicious! We had them for dinner tonight. My daughter, who says she does not eat meat, ate several of them then wrapped all the left overs in plastic to take to school tomorrow. They are the closing thing I have found to White Castle since I lived in New York 39 plus years ago.

  91. Going to make these for my family for game day! Im excited! Wondering if you can use avacodo instead of peanut butter? Maybe I’ll try it both ways.

  92. Ummmmmmm -the Midwest is NOT the East coast – we are the MIDWEST. Sliders are the product of a chain restaurant called White Castle. I lived long enough in the bay area to be amazed how little most residents are of the USA beyond the west coast.

      1. What?! Surely you realized it’s a chain. It’s based out of the midwest. It’d be like saying you made In and Out in honor of Utahns. Sure they exist in Utah, but they aren’t FROM there! 🙂 Plus we Midwesterners tend to get disgruntled when others forget about us for the coasts. Frankly, it looks ignorant.

    1. When I saw “East coast thing” I was confused as well LOL I grew up on White Castle in Illinois and Missouri, and they were actually founded in Kansas. It’s good to see they’ve branched out so far though, but I wish they had some in Texas! The ones from the freezer section at Wal-Mart aren’t even close! Thank you for the recipe Erica!

        1. Haven’t tried turkey before… I don’t know how it will affect the taste/texture. Sorry! Wish I was of more help!

  93. well maybe i made them wrong but i followed the recipe to the T
    and it came out tasting like a peanut flavored burger drenched in onion soup mix

  94. I don’t normally comment on recipe sites, but, every now and then something comes a long…
    I made these for some coworkers the other night (Thursday), it is now Monday and I have made them seven times. The last two times were double batches. These are just outstanding!
    And, I trusted you, the peanut butter really works and is also what intrigued me about them in the first place…plus I love the look on people’s faces when I tell them what the ‘secret’ ingredient is.
    Thanks so much for sharing!

    1. I am so glad you (and your co-workers) liked them! I always make them around this time of year because it is so much easier than making individual burgers. Thanks so much for the comment!

  95. Loved these! However, instead of pushing bottom of buns to the side, I toasted them. Then I put mustard, ketchup, & a dill pickle chip on them. I did put mayo on some of them since I am a mayo person!

  96. Easy to make. I’d cut back on the peanut butter a bit, but otherwise a great turnout. Used potato rolls.

    1. I agree with this comment. A little too much of a PB undertone. But with this in mind, I will try to remake with half of it and see how it turns out. Thanks for the recipe.

  97. These turned out absolutely amazing! Tastes just like the original…we added yellow mustard and pickles. If you like White Castle and/or Krystal, you’ve got to try this recipe!!

  98. I’m going to try these even the pb ;o) I’ve been craving wc but the closest place is like an hour away. I even wrote wc and they aren’t going to put one here. My husband and I wanted them so bad back home for yrs but it was only 1/2 hr away to Indy or Greenfield to get them. But the yr after he passed away the finally built one in our town but I had moved to Ky. The ones in the store just aren’t the same either. So I’m going to try these instead. thanks for the receipe.

  99. I made these for first time for my husband. I ended up using 2# hamburger. It ended up making them a little bit thicker. Still good. I was told I forgot ” pickles”. I was skeptical on the peanut butter as well. All turned out. Making them again tonight.

  100. These were DELICIOUS and as close to White Castle as you can get. I did add a dill pickle chip and used Kroger slider buns….. I like the idea of dumping the grease after each step and will try that next time because I will make them again!

  101. Gotta admit I was skeptical about these, having grown up in Brooklyn, New York where White Castle is plentiful. I decided to give these a try due to the fact that now I live in Southwest Missouri and can’t get them. Gotta say I’m impressed, they’re really good and pretty darn close. Kudos!!!!

    1. I also add the other half of the roll to the top bun ,cut side out . All parts are heated that way. Had a similar recipe for years. Like this recipe better..I think the peanut butter does it! Enjoy ♥

  102. Just curious what size cookie sheet? Is that a silly question? Very excited about this recipe though the peanut butter has me intrigued! My hubby loves White Castle I have never been because the closest one is about 60-70 minutes from here!

    1. I use my biggest baking sheet I have so I have room to work. You’ll want the meat as flat as possible and it will shrink. Im unable to use my rolling pin due to how tall the sides are on my pan so I use the side of a cup or pat it down with my hands

  103. Do you go ahead and cook the meat first then mix the PB, Milk and onion soup. Then spread on cookie sheet

  104. This sounds great, I am a bit taken aback by the use of peanut butter however I will try this after reading all the comments. You did forget one item that is part of the White Castle burger… the dill pickle slice. Thanks for taking the time to share this with us all.

  105. Made these tonight for dinner. AWESOME! I had to drain grease off each time I did the next step but not a big deal. Next time I may try lower fat beef next time. Simply delicious! I followed the recipe exactly and so happy I did. Thank you!

  106. Sounds delicious – I’ll definitely try these! (Just a note – you might want to look over your instructions. Some of the steps are listed multiple times, and it’s a little confusing.) Thanks very much for sharing!

    1. Thanks for catching that!!! Some of the instructions must have gotten copied over twice when we did our new format. I fixed it, it should make more sense now. Thank you again, I hope you like it!

  107. These were AMAZING!! Taste just like Krystals which is pretty much the same as white castle.. We don’t have white castle here. I just added a lil ketchup mustard and pickle just like Krystal’s!! Yummm thanks!!

    1. Sorry, but I dont agree with that. Krystals does not taste like WC at all. There is no comparison. Had Krystals once and never had them again, even the kids didnt like them.

      1. THERE IS NO REPLACING A WHITE CASTLE BURGER! I am 66 years old and I love WC. I use to live on them . Only we got them for 10 cents a piece. If I lived close to one I would be still getting them. The town HAD a Krystal , but it closed, tried it once never went back. Sorry Krystal you ain’t WC.

        1. AMEN!!! I live in GA where there is only Krystal-no WC whatsoever! I’m from Louisville, KY where there is only WC, so it’s very hard for me, because I’ve been a White Castle fanatic my whole life! My husband, however, who is a born and raised Georgian, had never had WC until I had a friend who was visiting from Ky bring me a sack of 10. Although he was reluctant to admit it, FINALLY admitted that WC is far superior to Krystal! I went back home to Ky several months ago and ate there around 4 times in 5 days AND brought some home…on the Greyhound! I said all of that to say that I can’t wait to try this recipe! The ones in the freezer section are NOT the same!!!

        2. Brenda, I’m 62 and I remember when you could get WC for 8 cents and I thought it was outrageous when WC went up to 10 cents…lol (gas was also about 25 cents a gallon …those were the days my friend). I lived in Missouri at that time. Now I reside in Texas with no WC. I was so excited when Krystal burger came to town. I heard they taste just like WC. I tried Krystal’s once and never went back. No comparison. WC burger meat to me has the soft consistency of a meat loaf and to get that texture you add socked bread with water squeezed out to the meat recipe. That’s probably what the peanut butter does in this recipe. So if you have a peanut allergy try the soaked bread instead. I can’t wait to try this recipe as is and then I will rate it.

      2. Sorry, I have lived in Ga most of my whole life and eaten Krystals since before I can remember and they are the BOMB!! I lived in Cincinnati where I first tried White Castle. They are basically the same. The only difference in the 2 is the condiments they put on them. I love them both but feel there is no difference. I am trying this recipe tomorrow. My sister n law made them before and instead of the peanut butter her recipe used gerbers beef baby food. Not sure about that one but I will try the peanut butter.

        1. I’ve had both many times and, honestly, I can’t tell the difference.

          Wish either would come to Colorado 🙂

      3. I’ve had both, and enjoyed both.. to me, they both taste the same. Happy with either.

        BTW, I’m doing these this week and can’t wait. Peanut butter? Ok, if you say so, and the other members liked it, I’m in!

        This post is now like 7 years old or so, and now the grocery stores actually sell ‘slider’ buns. Cool!

          1. 4 stars
            I liked them , I think next time I’ll use half the amount of peanut butter ( I doubled the recipe ) I also used Hawaii rolls ( a generic less sweet roll ) over all , I would make them again

      4. Absolutely I am from the Bronx NY where White Castle originated. I now live in Florida and tried the Krystal burgers”yuck” there is nothing like WC. I wish I could have someone buy them for me from the Castle and send them to me. Everyone say buy rhem frozen NOT THE SAME. I MISS THEM.

          1. I live in Kansas and I have yet to see a daggone WC! I always have to wait till I drive to Kentucky to get a WC! FYI: Krystal’s is NOT the same!

      5. No, Krystal does not taste like White Castle. I am from Indiana and grew up on White Caste burgers. Then, we moved here to SWFL and there are no White Castles. I am so glad I found this recipe and can not wait to try it!

      1. Krystal’s does not use ketchup. I ask White Castle not to put ketchup on my burgers. I personally like Krystal’s better (I grew up near Savannah, GA) but they are very similar, just one has ketchup (WC) and one has mustard (Krystal’s).

          1. Yes, reading this article I was wondering where they came up with the mustard and ketchup. These condiments are not put the WC’s in St.Louis.

  108. These are so good! My kids loved them! I am sending the left overs with my son to school lunch tomorrow. He is so excited to show them off to his friends.

  109. Just finished eating these for dinner and they were wonderful! The only change I made was using potato bread rolls instead (just personal preference). Thank you so much for this great recipe that will be joining the monthly rotation!

    1. I would try almond butter (if you aren’t allergic to almonds) or just leave that part out. It will still taste fine.

    2. Try tahini it’s like peanut butter but it’s sesame seeds creamed instead. It should not change flavor but will add creamy quality to the mix

      1. 5 stars
        Yes!! I saw some where believe it or not ,that WC uses Gerber beef and gravy in their recipie.. Im trying it now wrining this..

    1. Have you tried Wowbutter? It is a soy-based, nut-free substitute for peanut butter and it tastes virtually identical to the real thing. Very tasty.

      1. In the directions it says 20 buns and cheese slices. Then in the video it’s only 12 for each?

        1. It really depends on the size of your rolls. You want to go by whatever size will fit over the length of your pan. The smaller Hawaiian rolls come in packs of 20, the larger are packs of 12… but the overall surface area is close to the same. Hope this helps!

    2. 5 stars
      It’s the peanut butter that gives it the white castle burger taste, otherwise it’s just burger and onion.

    3. 5 stars
      You can skip the peanut butter and use a jar of veal baby food instead. Google white castle copy cat burgers using baby food veal for the exact recipe. You’re welcome!

  110. I made these for my sons 14th Birthday-he loved them & so did everyone else. They were very similar to White Castle-not quite as good, but a great substitute. I am from an area w/WC burgers-well 20 m away. My husband made many long trips there for pregnancy cravings~ I am surprised I didn't give birth to one;)

  111. These look delicious! What a great idea to put the meat on a cookie sheet. That makes it really easy to make. Thank you for all of the great ideas and recipes.

    1. P. G.
      I made these last week and I am a HUGE white castle burger fan! These are fantastic! My sister came over and she could not believe how great they tasted! Very Easy! and they do freeze well as stated!

      1. I only had a baking sheet and no rolling pin. I put the mixture on an 11X17 sheet and covered it with plastic wrap. I then used another baking sheet and flattened it out. Worked good. Came out very good. Thanks.

        1. How could the peanut butter ruin it? I only used a pound of hamburger because it’s what I had. Still used the tablespoon of peanut butter. I didn’t taste it at all! Unless someone has allergies I can’t understand how they could be ruined?

          1. 5 stars
            The people probably put more than a tablespoon and don’t know how to measure properly lol

          I live near Chicago and the peanut butter gives it it’s “unique White Castle” taste. I make these over and over again, even though White Caste is literally 2 miles from me. Plus, it’s way cheaper!

      No WC or Krystals here in Oklahoma but the local Walmart sells them frozen…and they ain’t bad. (I have lived in places where WCs are and the frozen ones seems pretty close to what I remember from those days). I buy a box every now and then. I do plan to try this recipe, the peanut butter is…well, intriguing! 😀

      1. My local grocery store wanted 9 bucks for a frozen box of wc burgers. I bought the ingredients I needed for 5 bucks. Never had a wc burger before so I won’t be able to compare but they always look so yummy on tv. My dad has used peanut butter for burgers since I was a kid.

    3. 5 stars
      Oh my gosh these were good. I’m going to say it: they were way better than any WC I’ve had. I only had a lb of 93 % lean and it shrank down to perfectly fit the slider buns. I left the onions off a quarter of it for my onion-repulsed son (but used the soup mix and he didn’t notice). It was the first dinner in a long time that he didn’t ask how many bites he had to eat. I recently discovered your blog and bought both cookbooks. I’m an instant fan! Thanks!

      1. Wow Melissa, than you so much!!! What a huge compliment! Thank you for purchasing our cookbooks! We hope you and your family will continue to enjoy our recipes 🙂 You totally made my day!

    4. 5 stars
      I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out amazing! Oh and flatting the meat in the pan with a rolling pin… so easy & a great idea!!! I can’t wait to make them again and surprise my friends from up north they are going to love it!!!

      1. Hi Sophi! So glad you liked these sliders! Thanks for taking the time to come back and let us know how they turned out for you!

    5. They turned out great, even without the onion soup mix. (Didn’t have any on hand) I poked holes in the pressed meat to give it the true WC thinness. I made a double batch with the hope of freezing some for later but they were all gobbled up! Thanks for a great recipe!
