Nicknamed "Sliders" and "Gut Bombers," these famous tiny burgers were one of the earliest fast-food creations. It all started in 1921 when E.W. Ingram borrowed $700 to open a hamburger stand in Wichita, Kansas. Ingram chose the name White Castle because "white" signified purity and cleanliness, while "castle" represented strength. permanence, and stability. White Castle lived up to its name, maintaining that permanence and stability by growing steadily over the years to a total of 380 restaurants.

Ingram's inspiration was the development of steam-grilling, a unique process that helped the burgers retain moisture. The secret is grilling the meat over a small pile of onions that give off steam as they cook. Five holes in each mini-burger help to ensure that the meat is completely cooked without having to flip the patties. Today customers can buy these burgers "by the sack" at the outlets, or pick them up in the freezer section of most grocery stores, but hey, making them at home is fun!

Now, how about some fries and a milkshake to complete the meal.

Recipe is excellent, however, in reading other copycat recipes I found that they use Gerber Beef w/ Beef gravy added to the meat. I am going to give it a shot.

The tips for making these will be passed on to the next generation. It makes preBBQ easy and burgers come out unbelievably good. Thanks for the 'tricks of the trade', Todd!!
