Comment: This came up at a barbecue over the weekend. A guy cooking a
turkey in one of those big deep fryers that are all the rage right now
stuffed the bird with a 30-pack of White Castle burgers, pickles and all.
He claimed it's a Martha Stewart recipe, which I found a bit hard to
believe. Though I had to admit it was pretty tasty. Anything to the
Martha-slider connection?

This was one of the hits in the google search:

The stuffing is, not surprisingly, the brainchild of a White Castle employee.

Eleven years ago, Kim Bartley crafted the recipe by using her grandmother's stuffing as a starting point, but subbing the burgers for the sausage her grandmother used. For every pound of turkey, she used one slider -- a name the company has trademarked, although it spells it "Slyder."

It sounds so horribly nauseating.

While I ate them by the sack when I was younger, we never called them (never even HEARD of) sliders; they were plain ol' RATS (short for ratburgers.) Named, of course, after the meat they were made from [Smile]

I always sort of half-figured the company knew of both nicknames and decided that between the two, they'd rather be known as sliders than the more popular ( [Wink] ) rats. But I still don't know anyone that calls them anything but rats [Big Grin]

For some reason, that doesn't sound very Martha Stewart-esque...there's no homemade potpourri involved.

That was my first thought...I can't even imagine her touching a slider, much less using them in a recipe.
As a (recovering) White Castle addict, I think that putting them in a turkey sounds horrible...why would you want to ruin the burgers like that?

I do remember Martha doing a show onDeep Fried Turkey
Perhaps this is the connection that started the rumour?

DON'T waste money on expensive paper shredders to avoid having your identity stolen. Simply place a few dog turds in the bin bags along with your old bank statements..
