Skinner’s Steamed Hams has been on my request list for awhile. Quite a few people asked that I make this and I’m nothing if not compliant. As always, I aim for true authenticity so I didn’t actually make the steamed hams. Instead, I bought them just like Seymour did. Ah delightfully devilish Eats Like A Duck! According to Super Nintendo Chalmers, Krusty Burgers are grilled, because they have grill marks on them. Knowing that, Burger King seemed like it was the best bet for recreating this recipe.
- 3-4 Burger King Whoppers
- Two packs of large Burger King fries
Place burgers on a platter and garnish with fries. Optional: calve stretches before the meal prep.
I know, I know – there are FOUR burgers on Seymour’s platter and only three on mine. How many burgers do you people expect me to eat in a single sitting?! I already have enough stomach problems what with all the vodka and wheatgrass / mayonnaise / homemade Kahlua I’m consuming, I don’t need to be eating multiple burgers at a time too.
That being said, I haven’t had a Whopper in years and this was actually quite tasty. I should also admit that I wasn’t fully committed to authenticity here and so I did not light my kitchen on fire. Although if I had, I’d like to think things would go a little something like this…
Skinner: Ah, well, that was wonderful. A good time was had by all. I’m pooped.
Chalmers: Yes, I should be…good lord! What is happening in there?!
Skinner: Aurora Borealis?
Chalmers: Aurora Borealis? At this time of year? At this time of day? In this part of the country? Localized entirely within your kitchen?
Chalmers: May I see it?
Skinner: Er, no.
Agnes: Seymour, the house is on fire!
Skinner: No, Mother, it’s just the Northern Lights.
Chalmers: Well, Seymour, you are an odd fellow but I must say, you steam a good ham.
Agnes: Help! Help!
