The beloved Hamburger gets its own day on International Hamburger Day!

As we all know, the hamburger is basically a baked bun, beef patty, mustard, ketchup, onion, pickles, with optional cheese.

The “Burger” is convenient, cheap, and delicious, this world-famous food has a storied and uncertain history. No one is quite sure about the hamburger’s origins, other than that it is eponymously named after the town of Hamburg in Germany.

People have been eating cooked meat on bread for centuries, but the association with Hamburg stems from a 1758 recipe for a dish called the “Hamburg Sausage.” Others think the name originates from a cruise company known as the Hamburg America Line, which served its passengers similar sandwiches in the Mid-1800s. To this day, there is little agreement over who actually created the iconic food.

Numerous deli and diner owners across the United States claim that their joint is responsible for inventing the burger. However, there seems to be some consensus amongst historians that the food as we know it today truly gained popularity at the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis, an event that also gave us the ice-cream cone.

However it happened, the hamburger has grown to be one of the world’s most widely consumed food items, found on menus from Texas to Thailand. They can be had for a dollar apiece or made from gourmet ingredients that cost hundreds. However you decide to chow down, this day is for you. Fire up the grill, gather round your friends, and cook up some delicious burgers.

For many of us, some of our best memories have been shared over burger meals — a first date, coupons and rewards at work by the boss, and discovering different sauces and spice blends for the perfect burger. These traditions are revisited or continued on National Hamburger Day.
