National Hamburger Day!
Nothing is more American than a
big, juicy hamburger. Hamburgers and cheeseburgers have been a staple
of the American diet for decades. In 2001, over 8.2 billion burgers were
served in commercial restaurants in the United States. This number
doesn't even take into account the number of burgers people eat at home,
which is another 15 billion!
Although hamburgers originated in Hamburg, Germany, eating the burger in a bun is actually an American innovation. The hamburger sandwich was most likely invented in Seymour, Wisconsin. Each year the city hosts a hamburger festival called Burger Fest. That is where the world's largest hamburger made its debut in 2001. It weighed 8,266 pounds!
To celebrate National Hamburger Day, host a backyard barbeque with your friends and grill up some tasty burgers. Don't forget about all the delicious ways you can customize your burger — add bacon, ketchup, lettuce, tomatoes, mayo, and your other favorite fixings!
