I lived in Brooklyn years ago, just down the street from a White Castle. I never understood the appeal of their steamed sliders, I always thought they were slimy & gross. So I hesitated when I saw others comparing this recipe to the white castle version. I just made this yesterday (for the Super Bowl, yes!) and luckily it turned out delicious. The flavor is definitely very onion-y. I happen to love that, but I would cut back a bit on the soup mix if you don't love onion. As suggested in the recipe, I cooked this in the pan that the mini rolls came with. I used a pound of beef for only 12 buns so my burgers came out thicker, and I had to cook them longer. The buns were perfectly crispy yet soft inside. I added a lot more cheese. The texture of the meat ends up soft - a lot like meatloaf, so it can be hard to tell when it's cooked all the way through. This was a big hit with my husband. A genius way to cook mini burgers.
