|It takes 10 of these to make Spicy White Castle Dip.|
No, there isn't a White Castle in the Kansas City metro anymore, but several area supermarkets sell boxes of the frozen product, which can be heated up in the microwave oven and then mashed up in a food processor to make "Spicy White Castle Dip."
SPICY WHITE CASTLE DIP
10 White Castle hamburgers
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese
3 packets of White Castle Dusseldorf mustard
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
9 ounces chunked hot pepper jack cheese
2/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons parsley flakes
Directions: Mix cream cheese and mustard together and spread on bottom of large, shallow serving dish; spread onions evenly on top. Put burgers in food processor until blended and spread over onions. Cut cheese into chunks, add milk and melt in microwave for one or two minutes. Stir until creamy. Pour cheese mixture over burgers. Sprinkle parsley flakes on top. Heat for 3-4 minutes in microwave or in conventional oven for 20 minutes. Serve with a large bag of tortilla chips.
"This dip was a winner in the 2000 'White Castle Crave Time Cook-Off.' Hands down, it was one of the favorites," says Brynn Burton, who handles public relations for White Castle but hasn't actually tasted the spicy dip. Her personal favorite recipe, she says, is the turkey stuffing that uses 10 White Castle burgers -- without the pickles.
