Here’s how it’s done, according to White Castle:



- 10 White Castle sliders, (no pickles) from either a restaurant or from the grocer’s frozen-foods section (thaw first)

- 1 ½ cups diced celery

- 1 ½ teaspoons dried sage

- 1 ¼ teaspoons ground dried thyme

- ¾ teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper 

- ¼ cup chicken broth


Combine White Castle hamburgers torn into pieces in a large mixing bowl with the celery, sage, thyme and black pepper. Add the chicken broth. Stuff the cavity of the turkey just before roasting.

Recipe makes about 9 cups, enough for a 10- to 12-pound turkey. If you have a bigger turkey, allow one slider for each pound of turkey.
