COPYCAT WHITE CASTLE BURGERS

Oh my goodness.  I just came across this recipe posted by my friend Becky Terry and I am so excited.  White Castle Burgers have been my favorites since I was a little girl. Since I live West of the Mississippi we don't have them here.  Right after the 9/11 disaster I was flying back to Texas from Indianapolis.  I had stopped and bought a case to bring home with me.  Airport security was new then with armed soldiers walking around the airport.  The screener said, "Oh ma'am I can't allow you to take those White Castles."  I know I looked terribly disappointed but I wasn't about to question him.  Then he smiled real big and said, "I can't let you take them because I'm hungry and I love them too."  Boy did I ever protect them on that flight! Once in awhile I buy a box of the frozen ones but they just aren't the same.  I can't wait to try these!

1 1/2 pounds hamburger
1 package Lipton onion soup mix
1 tablespoon peanut butter (yes, peanut butter.. trust me)
1/2 cup milk
1 onion, finely chopped
Sara Lee Classic Dinner Rolls (or the really soft small-sized dinner rolls from the bakery), sliced in half
Cheese slices(you can use Kraft Singles or sliced Velveeta cheese.. we used Velveeta)
Instructions

In a large bowl mix the hamburger, Lipton onion soup mix, peanut butter, and milk. Spread the meat mixture on a cookie sheet. Use a rolling pin to roll over the meat to smooth it out.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. The meat will shrink. Take it out of the oven and put the diced onions all around the edges, this will give the meat a great flavor.
Bake for 15 more minutes, remove from oven, then spoon the onions from the edges all over the top of the meat and layer with cheese slices.
Bake another 7-10 minutes (until cheese is melted). Then add the tops of your rolls (the bottom part of the rolls will just sit on the counter) and place back in the oven for about 5 more minutes.
Take it out of the oven. Slice the meat with a pizza cutter and pick up the slider/top bun with a spatula and set it on the bottom bun.
