The White Castle slyder slips down so easily that it's difficult to conceive of the little steam-grilled burgers as anything other than a three-bite snack. So the Hot Dish was a little stunned to receive these recipes that call for slyders as an ingredient in party dip and chili.
"Put burgers in food processor until blended and spread evenly over onions," an instruction in the dip recipe implores. "Remove burgers and pickles from buns and cut them up," is a step on the path to a steaming crock of White Castle White Chili.
