I’m so fascinated by this recipe in the way that some folks are fascinated by car wrecks or roadkill. Now, maybe I’m being a little harsh, but the idea of wedging the 3 AM-grease-fest words “White Castle” next to wholesome “Thanksgiving” sends shivers down my spine. Yes, this is coming from the girl who simply must have the dreaded green bean casserole on the table next to the turkey. We all have our weaknesses, and perhaps the White Castle Holiday Stuffing will become your next guilty pleasure. It just won’t be mine…
Straight from the coupon section of my local newspaper, and proclaiming itself to be A New Tradition 90 Years In The Making, I present to you (but not proudly):
White Castle Holiday Stuffing
10 White Castle hamburgers, no pickles
1-1/2 cups celery, diced
1-1/4 tsp ground sage
1-1/2 tsp ground thyme
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 – 12 lb turkey). Note: allow 1 hamburger for each pound of turkey, which will be the equivalent of 3/4 cup of stuffing per pound.
And there you have it, folks. I’m dying to see if any of you have tried this, or are considering making it. Comments, please!
