White Castle Shows How to Stuff It!!

White Castle Recipe Book “By the Sackful” on Sale Now for $5 at House of Crave

(Columbus, OH) – Since it was first published in 1996 in the “Cravetime Cookbook”, the White Castle Turkey Stuffing recipe has stuffed the cavities of thousands of birds for family Thanksgiving dinners across the country. The quick, easy, tasty concoction is the perfect answer for busy cooks. Now you can stuff your turkey and your holiday stockings – with the turkey stuffing recipe and the latest White Castle recipe book, on sale now at House of Crave.

Here’s the recipe:

  • 10 White Castle hamburgers, pickle removed
  • 1 ½ cups diced celery
  • 1 ¼ teaspoon each ground thyme and ground sage
  • 1 ½ teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup chicken broth

Tear burgers into small pieces and place in a large mixing bowl. Add 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 – 12 lb. turkey. Note: Allow one White Castle hamburger for each pound of turkey, which will be the equivalent of ¾ cup of stuffing per pound.

The stuffing recipe was developed in 1990 and evolved into the company’s first recipe contest in 1991, followed by its first recipe book, the “Cravetime Cookbook” in 1996. “Thinking Outside the Box – The White Castle 10th Annual Crave Time Cookbook 2001” and “By the Sackful: A Scrapbook with Recipes from 85 Years of White Castle Craving” are follow-up recipe compilations published by White Castle, thanks to ongoing craver submissions of recipes using 10 White Castle hamburgers. “By the Sackful” is available for purchase at for just $5.00 – a perfect holiday stocking stuffer.

“It’s really quite magical and surprising the number of different kinds of recipes we have received over the years,” said Kim Bartley, White Castle VP of marketing. “It is truly amazing what our loyal cravers have come up with using just ten burgers.”

Proceeds from the sale of the White Castle 2005 recipe book “By the Sackful” go to Turkeys 4 America, a non-profit organization that provides turkeys for Thanksgiving to those who otherwise would not be able to afford to buy their own turkey.

White Castle owns and operates 419 restaurants in 11 states. All White Castle restaurants will be open on Thanksgiving Day, November 26, 2009. For those cravers not living within easy reach of a White Castle restaurant, our hamburgers can be found in the frozen food section of grocery stores across the country.
