    I have a sudden serious cravings for "sliders".

    UNFORTUNATELY...

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

    Dang. :(

    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 foodtv.com) but here it is:

    http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,1977,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:
