White Castle’s Original Slider Stuffing
White Castle restaurants
White Castle put sliders on the map way before they became a menu trend on appetizer lists and shareables. The chain created a stuffing recipe around the iconic mini burgers that has gained popularity over the years. In 2021, the recipe was updated into a spicier version using jalapeno cheese sliders, jalapenos, cumin and pepper jack cheese, but this original one may have broader appeal. Packages of frozen sliders can be purchased at many supermarkets or at one of the chain’s locations.
10 to 12 original sliders, no pickles
1½ cups diced celery
1¼ tsp. ground thyme
1½ tsp. ground sage
¾ teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
¼ cup chicken broth (or 1 cup for casserole version)
1. Tear sliders into bite-sized pieces and put into a large mixing bowl. Add diced celery and seasonings.
2. Pour in ¼ cup chicken broth and toss well. Place stuffing into the cavity of 10-12 pound turkey and roast until done.
3. Or cook stuffing as a casserole, adding an additional ¾ cup of chicken broth; toss well. Spray or grease a 2-quart casserole dish. Transfer stuffing to the casserole dish and bake at 350 F for 35 minutes.
