White Castle Holiday Stuffing
Long ago there were rumors and rumblings of a turkey stuffing made from White Castle sliders. It was certainly the stuff of legend for every college co-ed heading home for Thanksgiving.
Thankfully, Amazing Ribs let the cat out of the bag, when they posted the recipe on their website a few years ago. Amazing Ribs is always our go to site for grill and smoker reviews, and also provide tons of great recipes, techniques, and BBQ science. Be sure to check them out:
This is our, slightly altered, version of that fast food take on a Thanksgiving favorite. Thankfully for everyone, this recipe can be prepared in fast food fashion, and ready for the table in short order.
This recipe can be easily doubled for a bigger crowd, but we have scaled it down for a family of about 4-6. Use 6 frozen white castle sliders, without cheese or pickles. We find the frozen bread best mimics the stale bread of traditional stuffing. You can certainly use fresh White Castle sliders but the major problem we have found is that they all seem to disappear before we make it home. As always, we prefer fresh herbs but lets be real, this is a White Castle stuffing, so replace with dried herbs if you want.
This recipe is so quick and easy
Start by cubing the burgers and dicing the herbs and celery. Use a high quality chicken or turkey stock for best results.
Next combine the cubed burger, herbs, and celery then mix with the chicken broth (turkey broth works great too). Add the mixture to a well greased baking dish and preheat the oven or smoker to 350 degrees.
Bake the White Castle stuffing for about 25 minutes. For a richer flavor, and more browned appearance, drizzle some melted butter over the top of the stuffing before baking.
This recipe goes great with any Thanksgiving meal, but is absolutely perfect with our smoked turkey breast, as part of a weekday Thanksgiving meal.
