"I'm from White Castle country and these are pretty close to the real thing. My kids enjoyed them years ago when I would make this for them."

    Made these last night for the family and eveyone loved them. It was nice to just throw it into the oven. I used 2 lbs. ground beef, 1/2 cup bread crumbs, 5 tablespoons water, 1 egg, 1 lipton onion envelope and 1/2 teaspoon salt and baked at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. I drained the meat and sprinkled grated cheese on half to satisfy the cheeseburger lovers in the house, cut them into squares with my pizza cutter and then served them on the Sweet Hawaiin Rolls. Served them with some onion rings that I got on the website and couldn't have asked for a more delicious, simple fun meal. Thanks!

    We don't have White Castle restaurants here, and neither my husband nor I have ever been to one, but these were definitely good (and tasted like little fast-food sliders)! It was kinda weird, for me, baking a giant slab 'o meat. Can't say I've done that before. Oh wait - meatloaf. Anyway, the grease was kinda hard to get most of it off, for me (I baked it in a foil-lined jelly roll pan). I might try baking the meat on top of a rack in a jelly roll pan if I do this again. I used Panko breadcrumbs, because that's all I had, and it worked ok. I couldn't find the Pepperidge Farm rolls, so I used King's Hawiian rolls (I could only find the four-pack "Sandwich Snackers" of those, so I bought two packs, and I had to shape and cut the meat accordingly), and we thought the rolls were just a bit too sweet. We topped the sliders with dills and mustard, and I served them with Recipe #42564. I individually wrapped the leftover ones and stuck 'em in the freezer. The directions were totally clear and the recipe was easy to follow. This was a cool copycat recipe, and a nice change from a regular burger. Thanks for posting it.

    My husband loves (!) White Castle sliders, but there aren't any near us. This are the next best thing I've found. I usually double the recipe and refrigerate/or freeze the leftovers. That way he can have White Castle whenever the craving hits him. :) Thank you for sharing.

    These were VERY good! I made a few minor changes (because of ingredients I had on hand) but we still loved them. I am going to try them with ground white turkey breast meat (to save a few calories maybe?) but entire family (and friend of son) said this was definitely a keeper and to make them again SOON! Thanks for a great recipe!

    These were the hit of the party I took them to. I did make a sauce that I drizzled on top of each patty with the pickles just before serving which was a combo of ketchup, mayo, mustard and a little wasabi paste. They are easy to make and I love how they come out of the oven all steamed and soft...I wish I had more to eat for lunch right now!

    FANTASTIC! I used white bread soaked in milk instead of breadcrumbs for a very moist consistency!! Will use this recipe again and again.

    Easy & Tasty. .Made with ground turkey instead of beef. .tasted just as great! Thank you for the recipe.


I love to cook and bake (like everyone else on this site)! I get my passion from my Italian genes. I'll try anything once, life's an adventure and we should enjoy eating.
