How to Make a White Castle BurgerWHITE CASTLE BURGER COPYCAT RECIPE, BAKED IN THE OVEN SO EASY, White Castle sliders recipeHi everyone and welcome to our site. We created this post a few years ago it was not planned, we were making White Castle Burgers for dinner and decided to snap a few last minute photos on our phone.  But when I see this recipe photos I have to cringe a little… so I decided to keep the recipe as is, but I wanted to add a few updated photos. Yes I know it is a fast food recipe so who cares if it is pretty or not… but it just makes me feel better having a photo that is actually in focus, lol. Enjoy!

White Castle Burger Copycat recipeSo many grew up on the famous White Castle burgers. They are even know as the first chain restaurant! So how do you make a White Castle Burger or “Slider“? It is quite easy and I will even show you an easy way to cook them up too so you get the nice thin patty of meat! And the best part out side of taste is that they are cooked in the oven! Yes cook your hamburger in the oven in 20 mins! The patties come out so nice and flat and are cooked perfectly on the onions!


  • 1 pound Hamburger – 80/20 is best
  • 2/3 cup Onion – finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Black pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 1 package Dinner Rolls

Thoroughly mix meat. 

white castle burger recipe onionsFinely chop onion and spread evenly over 13×9 baking pan.

white castle burger recipe holesSpoon portions of hamburger on top of onions. Evenly spoon meat around top of onions. Pat meat evenly on top of onions to cover entire pan. Then with straws poke holes close and evenly over entire meat. This allows the onion juice to rise through the meat, just as they do at White Castle.

Place in pre-heated oven at 400 F (bake) for 20 mins

the holes and the onions is what really makes it the same.. follow the process and you'll love em


Do you have to use the onions?


Can this be done withe ground chicken breast?


My Mama used to make baked hamburgers when I was a kid. She made hamburger patties, sliced an onion thinly and put one on top, then she poured ketchup and mustard over each burger and baked for twenty minutes. She served them on a bun with cheese and pickles. Good memories!

I made these tonight and my hubby loved them.  Next time I'll do the meat thinner, even if I have to use two separate pans.  I had more than a pound of meat which is probably why they were thicker. I added a couple dashes of Worcestershire sauce too.  We will make these again!


Thanks!  This looks like something my family would really like!
