The regionally appropriate term for "hamburgers" in Albany, New York.
Though phrased as "steamed", a steamed ham is typically grilled, and served on a platter often containing more than a quarter dozen of the aforementioned dish and various french fries.
Not to be confused with "steamed clams", a similarly phrased dish which can often be mistaken for steamed hams.
Oh, no, I said, β€œsteamed hams.” That’s what I call hamburgers.
