WHITE 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!

Jeez, S.King. Your mother must not have taught you the ol’ saying “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all”. I didn’t read anywhere that the woman said “White Castle bakes their burgers. Here’s how.” W.C. also has onions in/on their burgers as well as cheese so I guess those bits of the recipe are also “accurate”. No need to be a jerk and bring up mothering skills.

What an excellent way to make hamburgers!!!! I will have to try to make them in a pan! Thanks for joining ON THE MENU MONDAY and sharing your copy-kat recipe!

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!

When do you add the salt?

Kim O

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!
