This yummy recipe comes from Framed Cooks.  These were great for supper, and they’d be super for lunch, too.


1 pound hamburger (I used 80% and not 1 1/2 pounds/hamburger as per the original recipe)

1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

1 tbsp. salt

1 tbsp. pepper

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

4 soft hamburger buns

condiments:  ketchup, mustard, mayo, pickles, etc.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe recipe calls for you to use either a dutch oven or a large skillet; I used my largest skillet and a steamer.  Fill the skillet with water BUT not so much that it touches the steamer’s bottom.  Turn on HIGH and prepare meat.  Place hamburger, worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper into bowl.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAGently mix; for this I grabbed a handy-dandy quart sized baggie and mixed it up.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAForm the meat into four patties and let them sit and rest while the water in the skillet comes to a boil; grate the cheese while you wait.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOnce the water is boiling, gently place the patties in the steamer.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERACover and allow to cook on HIGH for about 8 minutes.  Here’s where I changed the recipe a bit:  at the end of the 8 minutes, remove the skillet from the stove and flip the burgers.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATop with cheese and cover for 3 minutes, allowing the cheese to melt and get nice and gooey.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAYum!  While the cheese melts, put the hamburger buns (still in their bag) into the microwave and warm for about 15 seconds.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAServe with assorted condiments.  I made tater tots and pork and beans.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADrool!  They were good and I’m sure that I’ll be making them again.
