But for me the best will always be White Castle Sliders, so when I first came across this recipe last year, I thought "well this is just what I've been looking for".
As always though, it got stashed away and forgotten about until tonight, I had extra dinner rolls on hand and thought I would surprise the kids with a special treat.
So here you go, the recipe makes 24 sliders, but I made half of the recipe for just us 4, I figure between the kids and my hubby taking some for lunch, it's more than enough.
1/2 cup dried onion flakes
2 pounds ground chuck- 80/20 ground beef
1/2 t. seasoned salt
6 slices cheddar cheese
24 small party rolls- I use Martin's Potato Bread Party Rolls
24 dill pickle slices
Evenly spread the onions on the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Gently press the ground beef on top of the onion flakes. Press evenly making one giant pattie.
Sprinkle with seasoned salt. At this point you can use a drinking straw and poke holes throughout the meat. That is what they do with the original white castle sliders.
Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes. Using a paper towel, pat the excess grease from the top of the pattie.
Top with cheddar cheese, return to oven for 2 more minutes.
Remove from oven, let set 5 minutes then cut into 24 patties. Slice open and separate each party roll. Place bottom of rolls on a large platter.
Using a spatula lift pattie with onion layer onto each bun bottom. Top each slider with a pickle slice then the bun lid. Serve immediately. Makes 24 Sliders.
Best rolls to use are the Potato Dinner Rolls.
