Almost White Castle Sliders for a Crowd

September 15th, 2010 by katie

One more freezer recipe for you before I give you the full run down.  These little burgers are great to make up and stash away in the freezer for quick snacks, or on-the-run meals, but they are also great for parties because they make  a ton of food for very little work.

These burgers are little bites of everything you want in a slider.  Greasy, meaty burger bites, onions, cheese, crisp dill slices topped with a dollop of ketchup or mustard and folded into a soft bun. They are pure comfort food!  There are lots of ways to make these burgers but I like Robin Sue’s recipe the most because it uses the original White Castle method of making the sliders: cooking the meat over a bed of dehydrated onions. 

Almost White Castle Sliders

makes 24, prep 10 min, cook 20 min, adapted from Big Red Kitchen
  • 1/2 cup dehydrated onion flakes
  • 2 lbs 80/20 ground chuck beef (you need the fat for re-hydrating the onions)
  • seasoned salt
  • 6 slices cheese, American or Cheddar
  • 24 small dinner rolls
  • 24 sliced dill pickles
  • ketchup or mustard as desired
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. In a 13×9 inch dish, spread onions evenly.
  3. Press ground beef evenly over onions into a large patty.
  4. Sprinkle meat with seasoned salt or seasoning of your choice.
  5. Bake meat for about 20 minutes.
  6. Layer sliced cheese over meat and return to the oven for about 5 minutes or until cheese is hot and melted.
  7. Slice meat into 24 tiny squares (4 rows by 6 columns, they will look too small but once you get the dinner rolls sliced they are the perfect size).
  8. Fill each dinner roll with a slice of meat and a dill slice, topping with ketchup or mustard as desired.
  9. To freeze wrap each sandwich with plastic wrap and place in a large freezer bag.  Freeze.
  10. When ready to eat, remove a sandwich from the bag and unwrap.  Wrap in a paper towel and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds upside down, then 30 seconds right side up.  Allow to cool slightly before eating.

    I love little sliders. I have a recipe that’s very close to this. I use Sara Lee dinner rolls. Makes a great little burger.

    I love Robin Sue’s site! Thanks for the reminder – not a fan of onions, but my brother is coming to town and loves White Castle!

    Hey – I am having an open house at my Mom’s on Saturday – I am doing a chili bar, but I am trying to think of easy appetizer to walk around with – got any ideas??

    These Ham and Cheese Pretzel Bites or Shrimp Nacho bites or Prosciutto Pinwheels all seem easy and portable (and wouldn’t be too out of place at a chili bar).

    I made Robin Sue’s sliders. They kids loved them. I’ll have to make them again soon. Thanks for the reminder.

  4. Michelle

    We’ve become big sliders fans and I liked this idea too. Thanks for the reminder.

    I love these and have been making them periodically ever since I saw the recipe on Big Red Kitchen. Seeing your post reminds me that it’s been too long since I’ve made them, and that I need to play with the method to see how it does on the grill. These would be great for tailgating!

  6. Zippy

    If the sliders are allowed to thaw (either overnight in the fridge or in a lunchbag at school) how long would you microwave them?

    Straight from the freezer they only need about 45 seconds to 1 minute. So slightly thawed I’d say maybe only 15-30 seconds. Good Luck! -Katie

    Did anyone try warming Almost-White Castle burgers on the grill? How were they? Wrap in foil?

  8. Stephanie

    I made them tonight (a double batch since we had 8 family members tonight) thinking I would have 48. However, when the meat finished cooking it had shrunk. The 6 cheese slices just covered the meat. Thankfully I had only bought 36 dinner rolls (3 packs of Sara Lee dinner rolls) otherwise I would have had extra rolls. Wonderful flavor, but I’m going to add more onions on top of the meat. We like our onions here.

    I made these last night but I did change the garnishes. I wanted to make a version of the Chili’s Big Mouth Bites and so I followed the recipe as above but I did mix the seasonings throughout the meat instead of placing in on top of the hamburger.

    I then made a packet of Hidden Valley Buttermilk Ranch dressing as directed and then mixed in diced jalepeno peppers into the dressing after the dressing thickened for 30 minutes in the refrigerator. I then made crispy Applewood bacon and crumbled them up and placed on the dinner rolls with the dressing.

    It was pretty close to a Chili’s Big Mouth bite. I did cut them up in 24 squares, they were small but honestly they were thick and big enough to fit in a roll.

    I made them, but put them in a cupcake tin so they are round!

  11. Kelly

    Made these for dinner tonight. Delicious! I halved the recipe and didn’t freeze it. So, so good. (And so easy!) I’ll definitely make these again.

    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues?

    A handful of my blog readers have complained about my ebsite not working
    correctly in Explprer buut looks great in Firefox.

    Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?

    If you tossed out the original packaging, check the black support bars for the labels A or B; the A bar is the larger
    of the two. Therefore we should instead study each move of our lifestyle and
    realize what precisely we ought to do to provide the little one with that too essential safeness.
    Obviously, because they grow so fast, none of us could
    keep up with purchasing the number of seats we required for our child if that
    were the case.

    This is an incredibly up to date look for cabinetry.

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is valuable and all.

    However think of if you added some great pictures
    or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but
    with images and video clips, this site could definitely be one of the greatest in its field.
    Wonderful blog!

    to this.

About chaos

cha·os -noun 1. a condition or place of great disorder or confusion. My chaotic kitchen is the result of three kids, two adults, dog, cat, and fish, a food obsession, a wine drinking hobby, and too few hours in the day. Between trying to feed a family of five healthy, happy meals, watching my weight, saving my pennies, and staying partially sane I have picked up a few tricks along the way. So here they are: the very best tips, tricks, and recipes from my chaotic kitchen-to yours!
