Copy Cat White Castle Sliders

My mother-in-law gave me this recipe when I was a newlywed. She had served these delicious mini-burgers for a friendly gathering and I was hooked the minute I tasted them. In the Chicagoland area, there is a fast food restaurant that serves these bite-sized burgers in large quantities. It’s fun to make a load of these for tailgating finger food. I often pack the foil wrapped, pre-cooked burgers in the crockpot to stay warm at the tailgate party. They are always a crowd-pleasing hit!

Copy Cat White Castle Sliders

2 pounds ground beef
1 (1.25 ounce) envelope onion soup mix
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
24 dinner rolls, split
1/2 cup sliced hamburger pickles, drained

Preheat an oven to 350 degrees. In a large skillet, brown the ground beef; drain. Mix the onion soup mix, mayonnaise and cheddar cheese into the ground beef mixture. Cover, remove from heat. Lay the bottoms of the dinner rolls on a sheet of aluminum foil large enough to completely wrap and seal in the burgers. Spread the cheese and beef mixture on the bottom half of each roll. Top each burger with two pickle slices. Replace the tops. Cover and completely wrap the burgers with the aluminum foil. (The idea is to steam the burgers enclosed in the foil.) Bake until the burgers are heated through and cheese melts, about 30 minutes.

Below, I’ve included a few step-by-step photos….

    1. Thanks! They are delicious and a great way to quickly feed a crowd. I so enjoy your posts, thanks for stopping by and pinning my recipe.


      1. I’ve heard so much about White Castle burgers, but I’ve never tried them. This is a must try recipe, and then I’ll share with the White Castle fans I know. LOL πŸ˜‰


  1. Wow, these really resemble the real thing. Ah, brings back memories of late night (err, early morning) dining of my youth! Will give them a try, thanks for sharing your recipe.


    1. Yah, they kinda look like the real thing. (Although, White Castle makes square patties for their sliders). …I think you might be pleased if you try making these. Let me know how they turn out if you decide to cook ’em up. πŸ™‚


    1. Yes, wrapping them keeps the buns soft and the idea is to present a mini-burger with a steamed bun. Really delicious! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment!


    1. Oh, I hope you enjoy them … Everyone I have made them for seems to really like them. You’ll get lots of recipe requests! Thanks for stopping by!☺️


    1. Haha…some people are truly addicted to the taste of WC hamburgers. When I was young, there were very few WC restaurants in our Chicagoland area, the closest was really quite a drive from our home. My mom thought it was a special treat to stop after visiting her Aunt on the south side of the city. Funny to think of such an attraction to the simple steamed burger.


  2. My boyfriend is a big fan of the WC he keeps them in the freezer all the time. I will have to make these for him soon as he is looking over my shoulder as I look at the recipe.


    1. This recipe is a real treat! I think your boyfriend is going to love this one… Make sure to buy rolls that aren’t too large. When I lived in Chicago, we used to visit the Pepperidge Farm or the Hostess outlet store to stock up on the small dinner rolls for this recipe. Thanks for your comment!
