Slyder Stuffing

November 16, 2006

Over on there’s a report of a truly novel Thanksgiving dish: stuffing made out of White Castle slyders. Slyders are the kind of food I talk about but don’t actually eat. This Thanksgiving, all that may have to change. As a public service, I reprint the recipe here in full:

White Castle Turkey Stuffing
10 White Castle hamburgers, no pickles
1 1/2 cups celery, diced
1 1/4 tsp. ground thyme
1 1/2 tsp. ground sage
3/4 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper
1/4 cup chicken broth

In a large mixing bowl, tear the burgers into pieces and add diced celery and seasonings. Toss and add chicken broth. Toss well. Stuff cavity of turkey just before roasting. Makes about 9 cups (enough for a 10- to 12-pound turkey). Note: Allow 1 hamburger for each pound of turkey, which will be the equivalent of 3/4 cup of stuffing per pound.

Last Christmas, my father-in-law mail-ordered what I thought was the holy grail of stuffing: the turducken (a chicken stuffed in a duck stuffed in a turkey). But, I have to say, at best we were whelmed by the turducken. So, instead of stuffing other birds into your turkey, this year why not try bovine parts and puffy buns?

    Oops, that didn’t work

    I don’t know….I think a stunned silence is a pretty appropriate response.

    I tried to make a link, but my blogging skills suck about as much as that stuffing recipe (or that nasty turducken).

    Happy Anniversary, Sweetheart!

    Stunned silence does seem appropriate, but since it doesn’t come easily to me, I’ll speak.

    I haven’t been to a White Castle since my wife craved their burgers during her first pregnancy fifteen years ago. I love the idea of this stuffing. It will be our turn to host the family Thanksgiving a year from now, and I plan on offering this as at least an alternative stuffing. I could save an eighty-minute trip by buying McDonald’s burgers as ingredients, but I’ve got to think that White Castle’s burgers would make all the difference. Healthy food, indeed!
