    I have a sudden serious cravings for "sliders".


    The nearest White Castle is in Nashville (400 miles away) and the nearest Krystal Burger is 100 miles away.

    Dang. :(

    My wife no longer allows me to eat Krystals. Something about singed nasal hair.;f

    There used to be a Krystal Burger in Mt. Pleasant (outside of Charleston). I'd always stop there at the crack of dawn on my way to the beach.

    I love the smell of Krystals in the morning. Smells like...victory.

    .10 each 12 for a dollar.

    They were good, you learned to not look to see if you got a green one which of course could kill you.

    White Castle--nasty stuff. When I went back to Chicago years ago folks said I had to try them. Awful, grey, tasteless things even with the tiny steamed (?) onions. Now In-n-Out, there is a burger.

    I made Alton Brown's recipe and it turned out very well. To make real Armpits (White Castles), you gotta use the dehydrated onions. Soak a 1/4 cup of them in hot water and throw them in the skillet about half way through. They taste just like Whiteys.

    I like White Castle, I only eat there a couple times a year though. There isn't one where I live but when I visit my family in S. Indiana I eat a bunch of the greasy little things. In-n-out is awesome. That is a quality burger. Have to go to Vegas for that.

    I had a bit of a time finding that recipe (on but here it is:,1977,FOOD_9936_25895,00.html

    Mini Man Burgers

    Recipe Summary
    Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 10 minutes
    Yield: 8 burgers

    1/2 teaspoon onion powder
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
    1 pound ground chuck
    8 (3-inch) buns or rolls, split in half
    2 to 3 tablespoons mayonnaise

    Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F. Preheat a griddle to 350 degrees F.
    Combine the onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.

    Line a jellyroll or sheet pan with parchment paper, and place the ground chuck in the middle of the pan. Cover the meat with a large sheet of plastic wrap. Roll meat with a rolling pin until it covers the surface of the pan; it should be very thin. Remove the plastic wrap, and sprinkle the meat with the seasoning mixture. Fold the meat in half, from side to side, using the parchment paper. Use a pizza wheel to cut the meat into 8 even squares.

    Wrap the buns in foil and place in the oven for 5 to 10 minutes. Meanwhile, place the burgers on the griddle and cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side.

    Remove the buns from the oven. Spread a small amount of mayonnaise on each bun and top with the burger and any other condiments, as desired. Serve immediately.


    Then again, you can buy White Castle and Krystal burgers in the frozen food section of just about any supermarket. ;)

    (but somehow they don't taste the same)

    Alton's burgers are good, but watch out-!
    When you fold the meat in half, make sure and get any air out that's caught in the middle. Both of my kids bit into theirs and SPLOOSH- juice and stuff came shooting out on their school uniforms. Wife was unhappy!

    I prefer the Chicks to the burgers at Krystal. However, I discovered a new-to-me chain with 100% Angus burgers called Backyard Burgers. The best chain burger I've ever eaten. The original came from the Magnolia State...Mississippi!

    Looks like franchise's are available; take a look:
