For the American Thanksgiving holiday, of course, the staples are turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and the dishes that are tradition to each individual family. In our family, grandma’s famous “pink stuff”, Nancy’s Jello salad, Susan’s pies and mom’s pretzel dessert all claim a yearly spot on the table.


So I thought I knew a lot about Thanksgiving holiday traditions — until I had the honor of whipping up a special recipe on television with the folks from the White Castle Family using the iconic slider. It completely altered everything I thought I knew about the traditional American holiday meal. Was it possible that the American stuffing side dish could get even more American? Indeed! So, I want to share the recipe with you to enjoy with your own family this Thanksgiving.

White Castle Slider Stuffing:

-10 White Castle hamburgers, no pickles
-1 1/2 cups celery, diced
-1 1/4 tsp. ground thyme
-1 1/2 tsp. ground sage
-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- to 12-pound turkey). Note: Allow 1 hamburger for each pound of turkey, which will be the equivalent of 3/4 cup of stuffing per pound.

ThreeWordPress wishes your family a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with deliciously new traditions!
