White Castle-like Sliders
By Robin Sue of

This recipe is both kid and adult friendly and when doubled can feed a huge crowd. I can remember eating “gut-busters” when I was in college
so I recreated the recipe to mimic the real deal. Not quite like a White Castle but probably better. The smaller portions were more manageable for my children, they love them.
- 1/2 cup dried onion flakes
- 1 1/2 pounds ground chuck- 80/20 ground beef
- 1/2 t. seasoned salt
- 6 slices cheddar cheese
- 24 small party rolls- I use Martin’s Potato Bread Party Rolls
- 24 dill pickle slices
Evenly spread the onions on the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish. Gently press the ground beef on top of the onion flakes. Press evenly making one giant pattie. Sprinkle with seasoned salt. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes. Using a paper towel, pat the excess grease from the top of the pattie. Top with cheddar cheese, return to oven for 2 more minutes. Remove from oven, let set 5 minutes then cut into 24 patties. 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 pickle slice then the bun lid. Serve immediately. Makes 24 Sliders.
PS-If you would like bacon on these, simply crumble 6-10 slices of crispy cooked bacon and spread on the bottom of the pan with the onion flakes- Fantastic!
I store these upside-down in an airtight container in the refrigerator. This will prevent the bottom bun from getting soggy from the onion layer. To reheat, place a few on a microwave safe plate and heat in the microwave for 20 seconds then 5 second increments after that until warmed through.
