Here is a $400 White Castle Burger Just Because
White Castle is known the world over for its diminutive, and cheap, slider hamburgers. However, what if the burgers weren't designed to cost less than a buck? What if they cost over 400 times that? One food blogger has been looking into just that, creating a massively expensive White Castle burger out of fancypants ingredients.
Nick from Dude Foods, who is no stranger around these parts, has just unleashed one of his most ridiculous creations yet: the $400 White Castle slider. What makes it so expensive? He topped it with two expensive cheeses, Pleasant Ridge Reserve and Hook's 15 Year Cheddar, then ladled on $200 worth of Italian white truffles. He wasn't done, however. Finally, the slider received generous portions of duck foie gras, Russian caviar and a fried quail egg. Oh yeah. He also topped it with 24K gold flakes. It's not fancy unless it's gold.
If you have a whole lot of money to burn and the hankering to turn something lowbrow into something decidedly high brow, give his outlandish recipe a try. One thing to note, however: He said it tasted terrible.
