Impress your guests and celebrate this Thanksgiving with a famous Turkey Stuffing recipe that includes White Castle's one-of-a-kind Original Sliders.

A favorite among Cravers for 20 years, this recipe calls for 10 Original Sliders as the main ingredient. 

The recipe originated from a White Castle team member who substituted crumbled burgers for the breadcrumbs.

White Castle's Turkey Stuffing is quick and easy to make, even for those cooks responsible for the entire Thanksgiving dinner.

The Original White Castle Turkey Stuffing ingredients:

  • 10 White Castle hamburgers, pickles removed
  • 1 1/2 cups diced celery
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon each ground thyme and ground sage
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth

 

Tear burgers into small pieces into a large mixing bowl with the celery, thyme, sage and black pepper; toss to combine. Add chicken broth and toss again.

Stuff the mixture into the turkey cavity just before roasting. The recipe makes about nine cups, enough for a 10 to 12 pound turkey.

Note:  Allow one White Castle hamburger for each pound of turkey, which will be the equivalent of 3/4 cup of stuffing per pound.

"Family and tradition are two important characteristics at the heart of the company and helped build White Castle," says Jamie Richardson, vice president at White Castle.

"The Turkey Stuffing was created by a team member thinking outside of the box for the holidays and unknowingly created a recipe that is now legendary and imminently craveable."

Beginning Monday, Nov. 21, White Castle is offering a $1 off coupon for a 10 sack of Sliders for cooks wanting to make the Turkey Stuffing recipe.

All White Castle restaurants are open on Thanksgiving to help Cravers with a last-minute urge to make the stuffing or to enjoy any other White Castle treat. Turkey Stuffing coupons are available until Dec. 31, 2011.

"As a family-owned company, we really enjoy team members and Cravers using our Original Sliders for creative and inventive recipes," Richardson says.

"Like many White Castle traditions, the Turkey Stuffing started out on a whim and has developed into a tradition for our company and for many Cravers."

White Castle is a family-owned business based in Columbus, Ohio that owns and operates more than 400 White Castle restaurants in 11 states. The company was founded in Wichita, Kansas in 1921.
