i have sadly never had a real whitecastle burger.. i have however indulged on a few occasions on the frozen ones.. and i have heard there are a few movies about "craving" these little burgers but i haven't seen them either.. so you can basically say i have totally missed the whitecastle boat.. so i thought i would attempt to make some.. i watched a show on food network or cooking channel not sure which one they are interchangeable to me basically about these scrumptious tidbits and thought i would try and make them..
the burgers themselves are square like whitecastle but i messed on the buns and got round ones i should have gotten square potato dinner rolls.. but they were still tasty little guys.. now i googled the recipe and came across a few but not as many as i thought i would.. so i settled on this one here.. and this one here..
now i am sure they aren't really close to the whitcastle burgers but they were pretty good..
prep time: 5 minutes
cooking time: 25 minutes
1/2 cup dried onion flakes
1 lbs. ground chuck, 80/20
a "blob" of peanut butter
1 tsp. garlic powder
salt and pepper
24 pickle chips
preheat oven to 400 degrees (f).. in a medium mixing bowl combine everything but the dried onions.. spread an even layer of your onions a lined baking sheet/jelly roll pan and press the meat mixture over the onions into a fairly thin flat layer.. cook for 25 minutes.. remove from oven and cut into 24 equal squares.. (if you want add 6 slices of cheese and pop back into the oven for about 2-3 minutes or until cheese has melted.. place your bottom buns on a platter and remove your "patty" with a spatual making to get the onions and place on the bottom bun.. place a pickle chip then the top bun.. serve with fries.. pete put mustard and ketchup on his!! i did a little mayo I know ackk they don't that but i really like mayo on my burgers! :)
