White Castle Sliders you can make at home! If you’ve always wanted to replicate these popular burgers from the White Castle restaurant, this recipe is the real deal.
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 Copycat Recipe
- 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
- 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, 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.
