This was how hubby enjoyed his sliders. With lime-mayo and onions!
I first had a taste of White Castle's Sliders in a sporting event. They are those mini burgers with square patties that have 5 holes in them. The Travel Channel featured them on one of their shows, and I found out that the secret to their delicious and mouthwatering patties are the white onions that permeate the meat through those 5 holes. GENIUS! No wonder Harold and Kumar went to all that trouble just to have them.

We don't have a White Castle here in our state (or if we do, please let me know!), the nearest I can get to a slider is a Krystal Burger. However, our local grocery store carries pre-packaged frozen White Castle Sliders, but it's not as good as getting it fresh from the greasy fast food griddle. So we decided to make some in our own kitchen.

What you need:

  • 1 pound ground chuck
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 2/3 cup beef broth
  • 2 cups white onions, diced
We used potato bread
What to do: 

In a mixing bowl, combine the ground chuck and pork.  Add the beef broth and mix well. 

Line a 13x10x1 baking tray with plastic wrap. Put the meat on the tray and flatten, until the meat is just about half an inch thick. You can do so by covering the top with plastic wrap and using a rolling pin to flatten it. Using a plastic knife, make small squares by scoring the meat. Freeze for about 30 minutes to firm them up and hold their shape while cooking.

Heat your electric griddle to 350F. Add the diced onions and place the square patties on top of them. Make sure you watch the onions because you don't want them to burn. Finish frying the patties by placing them on the griddle when the onions start turning brown.

So yummy...
 Build your burger by putting your choice of condiments on the bread, then add the patties. Enjoy!

Don't forget the mushrooms!
Tips, Tricks and Tweaks:

1. For a juicier burger, double the amount of beef broth.
2. Want authentic-looking sliders? Make holes in the patties using a straw to poke them.
3. You can also cook these patties in a pan instead of a griddle.
4. Toast the bread (with butter on one side) for a greasier but yummier burger.

This was how I enjoyed my sliders. Burnt, and with American cheese!
