Sliders on the Holiday Table? White Castle Turkey Stuffing



Maybe the best-known cookbook I've edited In my cookbook editing career is By the Sackful: A Scrapbook with Recipes from 85 Years of White Castle Craving (2005).

It's an a little astonishing that there are 100 recipes using at least 10 White Castle burgers. Even more noteworthy is that it's the company's third compilation of recipes, all culled from about 15 years of company recipe contests. Thousands and thousands of recipes for slider breakfast bakes, dips, casseroles and nachos.

These are but the spawn of the original White Castle recipe: White Castle Turkey Stuffing. Certainly you might stuff a turkey with Stovetop Stuffing, or oyster dressing, or sausage dressing. But in 10 years, they'll still be talking about the burger-stuffed turkey.

White Castle Turkey Stuffing

10 White Castle burgers, no pickles
1 1/2 cups minced celery
1 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1 1/2 teaspoons ground sage
3/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
1/4 cup chicken broth

Tear the burgers into large pieces and combine in a large bowl with the celery, thyme, sage and pepper; toss to combine. Add the chicken broth and toss again. Stuff the mixture into the turkey cavity just before roasting. Makes abut 9 cups, enough for a 10- to 12-pound turkey.

To make more stuffing, use 1 burger for each additional pound of turkey.
