I admit it…I have a soft spot in my memory for White Castle. Most of it is due to that period of my life when I was trying to prove that I was the love child of Terrence McKenna and the St. Pauli Girl.
In addition, I’ve seen several restaurants place their interpretations of “sliders” on their own appetizer menus. What other fast food restaurant recieves that sort of homage?
So when a publicist sent me this recipe, I realized I wanted to show them a little bit of love. Yes, the recipe is a novelty, something which the person who sent me this will never likely admit on record. But hey, it’s the start of the holiday season…and I’m feeling a bit generous.
Meanwhile, White Castle has also published a recipe book, “By the Sackful: A Scrapbook with Recipes from 85 Years of Craving” which is also available online at www.whitecastle.com. Proceeds from the sale of the book are donated to the non-profit group Turkeys4America, Inc. The cook book is stuffed with quality recipes submitted by White Castle fans in contests over the past 14 years.

In a large mixing bowl, tear the burgers into pieces and add diced celery and seasonings. Toss and add chicken broth. Stuff cavity of turkey just before roasting.
