White Castle Cheeseburgers

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Miss Erin C.

I love White Castle. I admit it, but I'd have to drive two hours to get to the nearest White Castle, so, I found this recipe in the Top Secret Recipes book. It is very well worth the effort if you love White Castles. Nothing compares to this taste.

I make a similar version that is much easier and tastes exactly like a White Castle. Brown 1 1/4# ground beef, drain and add 2 tbls. mayo, 1 pkg. Lipton onion soup mix and 6 oz. shredded cheddar. Use 3 pkgs. Pepperidge Farm dinner rolls (12 per pack) cut in half horizontally but not split into individual rolls. Spread meat mixture evenly over rolls and add a pickle slice on each roll. Replace top, wrap in foil, place on sheet pan and bake in upper third of 350 degree oven for 25 min. Excellent!
