How To Make Dino’s Steeler Burger — Recipe

You don’t have to be a Pittsburgh Steelers fan to appreciate the genius behind the Steeler Burger from Dino’s Sports Lounge. This behemoth features a Schweid & Sons Butcher’s Blend Burger topped with tomato, onions, bacon, and a fried egg.

But what’s most important about this creation is the audible the chefs called when it came to buns. Instead of the traditional potato or brioche bun, this bad boy sits between two grilled cheese sandwiches.

Don’t worry if you can’t make your way out to Pittsburgh though. We’ve got the recipe so you can make one of these at home. Touchdown!

Recipe Notes

Pro Tip: The Quick Steam Method involves squirting about a tablespoon of water around the Burger (or grilled cheese sandwich) and quickly covering with a pot lid. The steam that forms will be trapped by the pot lid and allow the cheese to melt much faster. Be careful when attempting this method as adding water to a hot surface will produce very hot steam (and if the surface is coated in oil, splash back may occur).
