"the recipe was wrong. You put foil down in the bottom of your cookie sheet. spread the meat mixture then place the cooked onions then the pickle. the split buns go on next . cover with foil. bake 350 for 25 min. remove from the oven. and cut between the buns. remove the top buns and slide the turner under the meat and flip the meat and roll over and place cheese. it will melt without reheating. set out mustard,ketchup and tomatos. i worked at white castle i know how its done."
