Copycat White Castle Hamburgers

 

 

white c final copy 2


Hi, everyone I’m back ! Relocating from NY to Virginia was a big big pain in the butt. But, in the end, it was sooo worth it. I was born and raise in New York, and I love it but , Chester , is a better environment for me and my family.{I will be posting pics, all week on twitter and instagram. so check it out.}

So, the last thing I ate before leaving NY, was White castle hamburgers. You can’t get them down here. You can get Krystal hamburgers. It’s just not the same. My cousin who move to ATL a few years go, and she  would always ask me to bring her some white castle. And I would always tell her she nuts you have Krystal’s. We did a taste test and I have to say, she was right. There’s something about the tender beef, the finely chopped onions with the sweet dill pickles that make it so gooood !  This copycat recipe is the closest to the Real recipe that I have tried. And I tried A LOT ! I’m always willing to try more. {So if you have a good one let me know .} This recipe is baked not fried. In a medium-large cookie sheet pan.
