I know everyone oohs and aahs about the turkey at Thanksgiving but to be honest, there’s a different dish that truly makes Thanksgiving dinner my FAVORITE meal of the year—stuffing. And while there are tons of different ways to make delicious stuffing, I want to share my new favorite secret ingredient—White Castle Sliders! Yes, that’s right, the burgers that my hubby and boys fawn over is now staking its claim to our Thanksgiving dinner table. It’s easy, it’s affordable, and with this secret ingredient I know my kids will gobble it up and not simply fill their bellies with pumpkin pie. Here’s how to make White Castle Turkey Stuffing Recipe.

Since hosting Thanksgiving is so cumbersome, I love using holiday hacks that minimize the amount of time I spend in the kitchen and maximize the amount of time I get to relax on the couch with a glass of wine. So when I learned about this White Castle Turkey Stuffing Recipe, I was SO PUMPED.
You see, all you have to do is head to your local Jewel and pick up sliders from the frozen section. The frozen cases of burgers come in all different quantities, and I recommend getting the biggest one so you can snack on a slider or two when making the White Castle Turkey Stuffing. The recipe yields about 9 cups (enough for a 10-12 pound turkey)) and the best ratio to use is one slider per each pound of turkey.
And while is a yummy variety of White Castle sliders available at your local grocery store, this recipe calls for the ORIGINAL sliders—minus the pickles. Once you find the right box, head on home and get ready for the easiest stuffing you will ever make.
WHITE CASTLE TURKEY STUFFING INGREDIENTS
- 10-12 White Castle® Sliders, no pickles
- 1 1/2 cups Celery, diced
- 1 1/4 teaspoons Thyme, ground
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Sage, ground
- 3/4 teaspoon Black pepper, coarsely ground
- 1 or 1/4 cup Chicken broth (See Directions)
WHITE CASTLE TURKEY STUFFING DIRECTIONS
1. In a large mixing bowl, tear the Sliders into pieces and add diced celery and seasonings.
2. Add 1 cup chicken broth, toss well
3. Add ingredients to Casserole Dish and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
4. Or to stuff the ingredients into the cavity of the turkey, prepare ingredients as noted above, but reduce chicken broth to 1/4 Cup, then cook as you normally would.
5. Makes about 9 cups (enough for a 10-to-12-pound turkey). Note: Allow 1 Slider for each pound of turkey, which will be equal to 3/4 cup of stuffing per pound.
Since I love crunch to my stuffing, I add a little bit extra celery. If you are looking for another way to brighten your White Castle Turkey Stuffing, feel free to sprinkle in a few dried cranberries before baking to get it some extra color and texture. With just five minutes of prep time and 35 minutes of baking time, you will have a delicious side dish to add to your Thanksgiving table.
