White Castle Sliders

These White Castle Sliders are a copycat version of the famous sandwich. I can’t promise that they’re exactly the same since I’ve only had the real thing once but these are good and great for parties!

Like I said above these are the copycat version of White Castle Sliders. But let’s just say they might not be exactly the same. I can testify because I can’t remember what the original tastes like. What I will say is that these are great – White Castle or not.  Last time I served these was after an epic long day.  One of those days when we were gone the whole day and we all came home starving. Luckily I had prepped these the night before so all I had to do was pop these in the oven for 15 minutes and we were ready to eat.White Castle Sliders - a copycat version of the sandwich great for parties.

White Castle Sliders
Servings: 40 rolls
Ingredients
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion , chopped fine
  • 8 ounces Velveeta cheese , cubed
  • 0.5 (1 1/4 ounce) package onion soup mix (see Note)

  • 40 slices dill pickles
Instructions
  1. Brown ground beef and onion. Drain.
  2. Stir in cheese and soup mix and cook over low heat until cheese melts.
  3. Spread burger mixture on buns. I used a cupcake scooper to do this to make it easier. Place rolls on a baking dish.
  4. You can wrap the whole pan in foil or each sandwich individually.
  5. Bake 350 for 15-20 minutes or until nice and toasty.
  6. Remove foil and top each sandwich with a pickle.
  7. Serve immediately with ketchup and mustard if desired on top.
Recipe Notes
Each Lipton Onion Soup Mix packet comes with 2 (.5 ounce) packets but note that the recipe only calls for one.

This recipe can yield between 24 and 40 sandwiches depending on how big you slider rolls are.

    I grew up with White Castles and I miss them. They are small square burgers with 5 holes punched in them for more even cooking, which they do on a steam table. The onions are grilled along with the burgers. You can find White Castles in most groceries in the frozen food section. They are not as good as the real thing from a restaurant, but they will do in a pinch. Every year on my birthday I send them an email asking when they are coming to Albuquerque. The answer is probably never.

    I plan on trying your sliders soon and I’ll let you know how I like them, I do enjoy your site and your posts.

    I must admit; I have Never had a White Castle but these sure do look Fantastic. I think I could eat about a dozen right about now.

  3. oh these look yummy!

  4. I worked at Krystal for several years and their burgers are pretty much the same. To get an authentic taste, you need to spread ground beef thinly on wax paper, cut into square patties (keeping on paper), and then freeze. Krystal uses dehydrated onions which need to be rehydrated a few hours before making burgers. I guess you can only finely chop onions. Place patties on the grill (Krystal grills fit 24), place 1 tsp of onions on top, and cook for a couple of minutes until almost cooked through; since they are thin, they cook fast. Flip burgers so onion is on the bottom; this will prevent burgers from drying out and allow onions to cook. Split square rolls and place the bottom, inside part down, on each patty. Place the top of the roll, inside part down on top of the bottom of the bun. Lower flame, cover, and cook for a few more minutes; be careful not to burn. This will cook onions, finish cooking meat, and steam buns (lots of steam from cooking onions). To serve, slide spatula under the patty with one hand, pick up the top part of the bun with another hand, flip burger, and place the bun on top. For classic burgers, just add mustard. Can also add cheese (American is served in restaurants) and ketchup.

    I grew up in the land of White Castles….they taste the best at 3: a.m.

    They are square thin burgers with holes punched in them to keep them flat as they fry fast and hot. Prepared like the Krystal Burgers.

  6. Look like they are easy enough to make. I will add to my list.

  7. I’ve never heard of these before but they look so good and so simple! What a perfect weeknight dinner!

  8. I made these last night exactly as directed, and my husband loved it! He grew up with White Castle in Illinois, and now that we live in the South, I can achieve the same taste at home! Thank you!

  9. I made these White Castles and the kids went wild about them. This recipe fed a big crowd and all were happy. This recipe is in my keep file.

  10. These are not White Castle’s, but they look good. Thanks for sharing.

  11. I’ve made these for dinner a few times. I healthified this a bit (whole wheat bins, lean ground beef and 2% cheddar cheese) and do 6 full burgers instead of the minis, and they are delicious! I didn’t grow up with White Castle, but this is a favorite recipe for us. Thanks!

  12. I am doing sliders for my daughters wedding in NINE days – do you think any of this could be prepared ahead of time or frozen?

    Thank you
