Steamed hams may be the greatest and most enduring Simpsons meme there is, so it’s no wonder beloved pop culture cooking YouTuber Andrew Rea of Binging With Babish has been fielding requests to recreate Principal Skinner’s, ahem, “homemade” burgers for years. Finally, he caved — and teamed up with the host of First We Feast’s The Burger Show, Alvin Cailan, for the attempt.
From the starting point of the classic Krusty Burger’s standard appearance on The Simpsons and a Connecticut (no, not Albany) speciality, the steamed cheeseburger, Rea steams himself up a ham or two. (This is despite the fact that the patties in the scene are “obviously grilled.”) Let’s just say it’s not exactly an unforgettable luncheon.
However, Cailan has his own spin on the technique, and I know which one I’d be serving to the stuffy school superintendent should I happen to ruin my roast.

Democratic norms are being stress-tested all over the world, and the past few years have thrown up all kinds of questions we didn't know needed clarifying – how long is too long for a parliamentary prorogation? How far should politicians be allowed to intervene in court cases? To monitor these issues as closely as we have in the past we need your support, so please consider donating to The Climax News Room.
