White Castle Sliders

White Castle Sliders
  • 1 1/2 pounds hamburger
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 package Lipton onion soup mix
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter 
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Sara Lee Classic Dinner Rolls (or any really soft small-sized dinner rolls), sliced in half
  • Cheese slices

  1. In a large bowl mix (with your hands or a spoon) the hamburger, Lipton onion soup mix, peanut butter, and milk. Spread the meat mixture on a cookie sheet with a lip. Use a cup or rolling pin to roll over the meat to smooth it out.
  2. Put it in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes. The meat will shrink. Take it out of the oven and put the diced onions all around the edges to flavor the meat. Place back in the oven for about 15 minutes.
  3. Take it out of the oven. If you want onions on your sliders then spoon them onto the meat from the sides. Add your cheese slices. Put it back in the oven for 7-10 minutes (until cheese is melted). Then add the tops of your rolls (the bottom part of the rolls will just sit on the counter) and place back in the oven for about 5 more minutes.
  4. Take it out of the oven. Slice the meat with a pizza cutter and pick up the slider/top bun with a spatula and set it on the bottom bun.
I love having homemade hamburgers, but I don't like cooking them on the griddle, touching the beef over and over again to form patties...ew.  This recipe was great because I just dumped the ground beef mixture onto a cookie sheet and let the oven cook it.  I also have enjoyed White Castle burgers in the frozen food section, since we don't have a restaurant around here, and I thought they were good.  I really like soft and small hamburgers.  Not a fan of that burnt charbroil flavor.  I recommend using extra-lean ground beef, since you don't get much fat drainage cooking them this way.  I still pat it down with some paper towels to remove extra oil.  I also liked the onion soup mix in the beef.  Tasty burgers!
