How to make white castle burgers! I figured it has been a while since I have shared a recipe.
Lately, our dinners have been quick and easy and not even recipe worthy. I mean if you want to call boiling some bratwurst in beer and sauerkraut a recipe..
or perhaps throwing some fresh roast beef in Au jus sauce and having roast beef sandwiches. All good btw and the kids loved them. However, they require no recipe.
These White Castle burgers on the other hand do.
Today I asked a friend: “what’s for dinner”? “What should I make”? The two dinners I just mentioned were also from friends suggestions. I get so tired of making the same ole same ole. I sure love it when Mike is off and wants to cook. He made a killer pot roast I will share with you soon. I just have to get him to sit down and share the step by steps.
Until I was around 11 years old I grew up in New Jersey. White Castle was huge there and I always loved it. It was a treat when you got to go eat at White Castle.
Everytime we are back in Jersey visiting you can bet a White Castle is on our list of go to places. We usually eat so many we are stuffed for the rest of the day. That’s the problem, these little things are deceiving, and you can’t just eat one.
Some simple ingredients. I will leave the details in my recipe card below.
But giving you the step by step visual. They are so simple!
The boys absolutely LOVED them.
These are great party pleaser. In fact, my friend Ellie who gave me the recipe brought these to a New years eve party. I admit, I had more than 1.
Ellie found the original recipe HERE
You can check out my RECIPE archives while you are here. Nothing but easy for this gal!
And this is How you make White Castle burgers..
White castle burgers
- 2 lbs of ground beef. Not too lean 80/20 is best but I used a bit leaner to be honest.
- Seasoned salt
- Onion flakes
- 2 packages of dinner rolls.I actually found slider rolls from Pepperidge farms.
- First spray the bottom of your 9 x13 pan with pam. Then add onion flakes to liking. I coated the entire bottom very well and then some. Take your ground beef and lightly spread while smashing down over the onion flakes to cover your entire pan. Season the top with your seasoning. Just one sprinkle evenly all over ground beef. Bake at 400 for about 20 minutes. Then take it out, and add six slices of cheese and put back in oven to melt about 5 minutes. Take out and cut in 24 pieces. 6 rows of 4 should do it. Serve with pickles and ketchup for the traditional White castle style. Enjoy!
I was just thinking about those little burgers the other day oh my gosh I just love them things I bought him in the freezer section wants but they were not like the real ones definitely going to try this recipe

My husband and I were just talking about these tonight! I grew up in Michigan and we had White Castle. He didn’t where he grew up but was stationed in Detroit when he was in the Coast Guard and loved to go there. We are trying these soon!
What an easy way to fix them! Thanks for the recipe.
Hi Debbie Dear! Oh, how nice to check my comments and see your pretty little face smiling at me! You know, I’ve never had a White Castle burger and will have to try your recipe. Sounds so good. Don’t we all love a good burger? Hope you’re doing well.

Wow Debbie…never thought to make burgers this way….I love White Castle and (dating myself) I also love another place that was similar called Royal Castle…they were in Florida…and they had the greatest soft drink called Birch Beer…It was a Saturday treat for us kids….The burgers look great…just like White Castle!!
My husband loves these. I bought the frozen ones for him but he said it is not the same. I will make these for him tomorrow night. Thanks for sharing, always love your recipes.
