My Grandfather made one dish, chili. No chili I’ve tasted is better. It isn’t hot, it isn’t fancy, but to me, it is perfect. I love it just topped with a bit of cheese and diced onions, I love it on a baked potato, but best of all is on an open-faced hamburger with the top bun toasted and buttered. I have never been to a White Castle Burger restaurant, so when I saw frozen White Castle sliders, I thought they would be perfect for speedy, tiny chili sizes.

I don’t know the exact proportions I used, but I removed the top of one of the mini burgers and toasted and buttered (I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter) it. I placed the bottom in a storage container and spooned some chili on it, sprinkled a little cheddar cheese and diced onion on it and froze it.
