Steamed Cheeseburgers: Make-at-Home Version - from the Land of Steady Habits!

The steamed cheeseburger is a Connecticut specialty. And here in the land of steady habits, it's definitely a love or hate thing. But having grown up with them, I've got nothing but love for a steamer.

So, inspired by Mark's post, I am making my own steamed cheeseburger for dinner tonight, on buttered toast. I meant to make a side dish, but truthfully, I'm starving and my makeshift steamer box is boiling as I speak.


Will be back later to tell you how this little venture came out. I'll start by telling you I did *NOT* use cleaned out cat food cans as my steamer boxes (I washed and washed, yet they still kinda smelled like cat food!). I instead used heart-shaped ramekins I usually use for custard. 80/20 ground chuck, Sriracha on top of the meat (who says a steamer can't be sexy?!), and McAdam Sharp is steaming away in my bamboo basket.

Wish me luck!
