Craving White Castle? You could have a whole truck-full on your front lawn!
It’s probably the most important holiday of the year. National Hamburger Day comes right on the heels of one of the major grilling holidays of the year, Memorial Day, but White Castle wants you to keep spreading the burger love. Starting today, White Castle will be offering a chance for one lucky square slider fan to win a “Crave Mobile party” which apparently involves you and 50 of your hungriest friends parting with a White Castle food truck. The contest runs from now until the end of July. Participants will have to submit why they think they most deserve a White Castle food truck on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram using the hashtag #Cravemobile.

This Adored Burger Chain Celebrates 100th Birthday With Customer Perks
White Castle/ Facebook
Get ready to party like it's 1921. Family-owned fast-food chain White Castle is pulling out all the stops to celebrate its centennial birthday. The official date of its inception is March 10 but the company will be marking the occasion all year long. From giveaways to special deals and even employee perks, the oldest fast-food chain in the world is turning 100 in style.
Customers can look forward to new limited-time items on their next White Castle run. The celebratory Fanta Craver Party Punch hit menus March 1, while Birthday Cake on a Stick will be available starting April 18. Additionally, fans can participate in the Time Machine Sweepstakes for a chance to win several prizes, including daily prizes, dedicated restaurant booths, their name in lights on a White Castle reader board, and a grand prize of $100,000.
Some other perks include a huge virtual party for customers and employees, which will take place on May 15, aka National Slider Day. The company is also releasing augmented reality cups that come to life when viewed through a smartphone and will partner with "iconic lifestyle brands" throughout the year. Employees will get a chance to earn perks as well, including $100,000 in college scholarships.
Over the years, White Castle has gone from a humble hamburger stand in Wichita, Kan. selling small, bite-sized burgers by the sack, to one of the most revered fast-food operations in the industry. Its impressive century-long run includes benchmarks like being the first fast-food restaurant to serve 1 billion burgers (a title achieved in 1961), and its Slider being named the most influential burger of all time by Time magazine. Just this month, the restaurant was named one of the Most Innovative Companies in the world by Fast Company.
But not much has changed at White Castle. You can still buy sliders sold in sacks, although many people prefer the massive and portable Crave Cases. The company innovates with the times but also sticks to what its customers love, which is why you still get those iconic sliders but can swap the beef for a modern, plant-based Impossible patty.

They're small for a reason
White Castle had a secret to getting their burgers out quickly — they were wicked tiny (and they still are). White Castle designed their burgers super thin and seared them on both sides to seal in flavor. If that sounds remarkably familiar, that's because Steak 'N Shake, Five Guys, and even McDonald's do the same thing. And of course, the thinner the burger the quicker the cook time. The burgers are so thin that in one pound of beef you can make 18 sliders! That's also something to keep in mind the next time you order 18 of them.
White Castle suggests stuffing your Thanksgiving turkey with burgers
But if you're still in search of one final dish that will really take your meal to the next level, consider White Castle's burger-stuffed turkey recipe.
To celebrate the biggest food holiday of the year, the chain famous for it's little burgers is re-releasing its stuffing recipe — and we've got to admit, it's a pretty fun take on the traditional dish.
Though novel, White Castle's original burger stuffing recipe actually dates all the way back to 1991 when, as the story goes, a White Castle team member used a sack of Sliders to beef up (so to speak!) her grandmother’s stuffing recipe.
“As a family-owned business, we’re happy to have the Original Slider and the Turkey Stuffing recipe a Thanksgiving staple for so many families across the country, Jamie Richardson, vice president of White Castle, said in a statement.
If you like burgers, this recipe might just be a big home run since you can use it to stuff your bird or bake it off in a casserole dish.
- 10-12 White Castle Sliders (you can find them in the freezer aisle at grocer stores nationwide or pick them up from local restaurant. Just make sure they don't have pickles!)
- 1 ½ cups diced celery
- 1 ¼ teaspoons ground thyme
- 1 ½ teaspoons ground sage
- ¾ teaspoons coarse ground black pepper
- ¼ cup chicken broth or 1 cup for casserole version
- In a large mixing bowl, tear the sliders into pieces and add the celery, thyme, sage, and black pepper.
- Add ¼ cup chicken broth and toss well. Stuff the ingredients into the cavity of the turkey before roasting and then simply cook the turkey for several hours, based on the size of your bird.
- Or, place into casserole dish add an additional ¾ cup of chicken broth, toss, and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. The recipe makes about 9 cups of stuffing (enough for a 10-12 pound turkey).
- Note: Allow one slider for each pound of turkey, which will be the equivalent of ¾ cup of stuffing per pound.
While the recipe is pretty out there, it’s not that weird. Those soft, doughy slider buns are a great stand in for any type of bread and a lot of people add sausage or bacon to their stuffing . so why not beef?
Since some variation of the recipe has been around for over 25 years now, plenty on social media have shared their (mixed) results and reactions.

I'm still in complete shock that she made "stuffing" with croutons, onions, and White Castle burger meat.— Shaunda (@dangshetall) November 25, 2016
Dear everyone stuffing your turkey with White Castle sliders: STOP. There is no reason to deny yourself amazing deliciousness by ruining it with turkey.— Brendan Diamond (@BP_Diamond) November 22, 2017
If putting a fast food spin on Thanksgiving is your thing, don't just stop at the White Castle stuffing. You can also make a tator tot turkey burger to feast on Friday!
Vaccinated? White Castle, others have freebies for you
(NEXSTAR) — White Castle is giving a free dessert-on-a-stick to anyone who has received a COVID-19 vaccine “to celebrate customer vaccinations and the promise of brighter days ahead,” the company has announced.
Through May 31, anyone with proof of vaccination can get one of four versions of the dessert on a stick: Gooey Buttercake-on-a-Stick, Fudge Dipped Brownie-on-a-Stick, Fudge Dipped Cheesecake-on-a-Stick and, as of earlier this month, its Birthday Cake-on-a-Stick to mark the burger chain’s 100 th birthday this year. No purchase is necessary.
Show your proof of your COVID-19 vaccination for a FREE Dessert On-A-Stick at your local White Castle!!https://t.co/wLQ7jWpCPB pic.twitter.com/YwrlSF1LTE&mdash White Castle (@WhiteCastle) April 22, 2021
“This ‘vax for snacks’ effort is just another way to support our communities as we make our way through this pandemic,” Jamie Richardson, a vice president at White Castle, said in a statement. “Our desire is for all of our friends, neighbors and Cravers near and far to enjoy good health. For those getting vaccinated we are here to celebrate with you!”
White Castle is the latest company to reward people for getting vaccinated against the coronavirus.
Krispy Kreme is offering a free glazed doughnut every day through the end of the year if you take your vaccination card to any of its U.S. locations, the company said in a press release. The card must show one or two shots of any COVID-19 vaccine for the offer, which must be redeemed in-store.
Budweiser is giving a free beer to anyone 21 years old and up. The offer is good through May 16, or while supplies last, to those who provide proof of vaccination on ABeerOnBud.com, though they have to first register at the company’s mycooler.com website.
And to protect your vaccination card, Staples and Office Depot are offering to laminate your completed COVID-19 vaccination cards for free.
A couple of deals are for folks in New York City only. Nathan’s Famous in Coney Island will give you a free hot dog with your vaccination card on the same day you get vaccinated, while Junior’s Restaurant is giving away a free mini cheesecake through Memorial Day to anyone who shows their vaccine card at their landmark restaurant in downtown Brooklyn.

White Castle celebrates 100 years, Hamburger Month with $100,000 sweepstakes
America’s “first hamburger fast food chain” is in the midst of a 31-day celebration.
White Castle has a number of festivities planned for the month of May, National Hamburger Month, including a chance to win $100,000.
“White Castle is the official sponsor of National Hamburger Month, having created the month-long event in 1991 to pay homage to the Original Slider we created and the industry we pioneered,” said Lisa Ingram, president and CEO of White Castle. “So it’s always a special occasion for us, but especially this year as we celebrate our 100th birthday. We look forward to having some fun this month with our Craver fans.”
The “White Castle Time Machine Sweepstakes” began on May 1 and will end on July 11.
“The decade-themed sweepstakes allows restaurant and retail customers to explore White Castle’s past, present and future while giving them the chance to win thousands of prizes, including the grand prize of $100,000 in cash,” according to a White Castle release.
White Castle Just Opened Its Valentine's Day Dinner Reservations
Nothing says romance like a shared love of junk food. If you and your boo obsess over White Castle sliders and fries, your dream meal might just be the chain's annual Valentine's Day Dinner. For 28 years, White Castle has been going all out for V-Day, decking out its restaurants in red and pink balloons, tablecloths, and menus and serving guests a proper sit-down meal.
As of today, White Castle's February 14th dinner reservations are officially open. You can snag a table at most outposts between 4 and 9 p.m. via OpenTable (online or the app). And this year, for the first time ever since White Castle starting serving Valentine's Day dinners, the chain plans to deliver to homebody lovers. More information will be released soon (we'll update this story), but according to a press release, White Castle will deliver exclusive &ldquoLove Castle&rdquo Crave Cases to certain lucky people.
The longstanding in-restaurant event has become a tradition for some couples, and we can see why. (Last year, 30,000 people took part in it.) Low-budget meal, burgers, and no one judging if you wear stretchy pants. Sounds like a dream. Some people do make it fancy, though. "We even have many Cravers who have shared their wedding vows among friends and family in our dining room," White Castle Vice President Jamie Richardson said in a statement.
In past years, the special menu has featured punny combos like "Love At First Bite" and "Eggspress Your Love," which came with breakfast sliders for two. There's also a special Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Smoothie made with strawberries, yogurt, and Ghirardelli chocolate sauce, if you want to leave the chocolate-covered strawberries at home this year.
In an effort to make the fast-food experience a little more formal, hostesses will seat you, take your order, and bring out your food on Valentine's Day. White Castle sets the mood with flower arrangements, table decorations, and a White Castle banner to pose in front of in case you want to 'gram your night. After all, what is Valentine's Day if not an excuse to go crazy on social media?
OFF TO THE CASTLE
We were given gift bags (a very nice gesture) and then whisked off to the nearest White Castle in Jamie’s White Castle mobile, a Sprinter-type vehicle covered in White Castle logos. He told us his teenage daughter is embarrassed to be dropped off at school in it, hilarious.
After a tour of the White Castle flagship store, we sat down for lunch. I ate a couple of Double Sliders w/cheese and a couple of the Jalapeño Cheese Sliders with an order of fries & a Coke.
There is something crave-able about White Castle. Why bring that up? We considered getting some sliders for the road in the drive-thru after lunch. Later on, we did end up grabbing some White Castle in Erlanger, Kentucky, on our drive to Atlanta. We knew it’d be a while before we had a chance to have another one.
A giant thank you to White Castle and Jamie Richardson for rolling out the red carpet for us. They outdid themselves class acts all the way. Do I know more than I’m letting on about White Castle’s future? Next topic, please!
