White Castle Holiday Stuffing / recipe

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!

A lovely cornacopia of sliders - if only the Pilgrims could see us now...

    I’ve made this, and yes it sounds like it doesn’t belong, but it tastes very good! I love this stuffing and will make it every year I cook.

    I know it sounds crazy, but this is the best stuffing I have ever had. I made it last year for Thanksgiving because I also had a strange attraction to the weirdness of it, but I also made the traditional stuffing we have had at Thanksgiving for decades in case this was not good. I did not tell anyone what was in it the “new” stuffing. It was the hands-down favorite stuffing! I did not stuff it in the bird, but cooked it separately. I am making it again this year and bringing it with me to the in-laws because I have to have it again. I guess it’s very similar to having sausage in the stuffing. Seriously, give it a try at least once. I also just heard about people who stuff their turkey with mashed potatoes, I may need to try that too!

    I too was apalled when I saw this in the local paper. I posted it on FB with the caption it would be good with meager sauce, which is toasted flour and water.

      Ha! That’s funny… Meatlovin’ Man told me that they used to put out a calendar featuring the recipes, and that they are now available online. I went and looked and there are seemingly HUNDREDS of recipes incorporating White Castle burgers. Who knew??

    Well, I’m going to make this (using my coupons) but as a side – I’m not going to stuff it in a turkey until i know how it tastes. My mom used to make individual chicken breasts (off the bone) layed over a mound of stuffing. I think I’ll do that with turkey breast slices and see how that comes out this weekend. Interesting……..
