White Castle sliders used to be super popular, and they sell them at the frozen section in the supermarkets too. Guga Foods has a copycat White Castle sliders recipe on YouTube that looks identical to the original ones. They’re so simple because these sliders just consist of meat, bread, onions, and cheese. I love how there’s a recipe from scratch on how to make the buns, but if you want to be simple, use the King’s Hawaiian sweet rolls.
- 1/2 Cup Pineapple Juice (121g)
- 1/2 Cup Whole Milk (120g)
- 4 tbsp Melted Butter (35g)
- 2 Eggs (109g)
- 6 tbsp Sugar (85g)
- 1/2 tsp salt (9g)
- 1/2 tsp yeast (9g)
- 4 1/2 Cups Bread Flour (640g)
- ground beef
- dehydrated chopped onions
First, freeze your ground beef in a flat shape so they are simple to cut out as lean patties. Lay the ground beef on parchment paper and take a roller to roll out the meat. Measure and mark the size of the patties on the parchment paper to be the same size as your buns so they fit perfectly. Use a chopstick to create the holes in the slider patties so the steam can arrive up through the holes.
Next, cook the onions and let them caramelize. Place the frozen ground beef patties on top of the onions, then stack the buns on top. Let that cook and steam over time. Assemble the ingredients and add the cheese in the end.
This is a great recipe to make at home if you want to skip out on the frozen sliders at the supermarket. Plus, the buns are the secret to this recipe because they look so fluffy. Personally, I did love how simple White Castle cheeseburger sliders tasted when I was younger, so it would be kind to bring back those taste buds memories.
