September 18th is National Cheeseburger Day
you're looking for something to do today then break out that grill
because it's National Cheeseburger Day! Get those beautiful,
grilled meat scents into the air! Let's get right into
celebrating National Cheeseburger Day!
WHY IS THIS A
Well, if you were to walk around in town at about midday I'm
sure you'd smell the familiar scent of ground of cow being grilled.
Yeah, people love their hamburgers! And they seem to love their cow
products too because slapping a slice of cheese on a hamburger tastes
like a like a combination made in cow heaven. Most meat eaters won't go
through this month without eating at least one cheeseburger so it's no
big mystery as to why they'd want to celebrate this sandwich! But
people didn't always put cheese on their burgers; that didn't start
until around the mid-1920s to mid-1930s. But who was the first to do
it? Was it 16-year-old Lionel Sternberger while working at The Rite
Spot in Pasadena, California in the mid-1920s? Was it somebody at the
Kaelin's Restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky in 1934? Or was it Louis
Ballast who worked at the Humpty Dumpty Drive-In in Denver, Colorado in
1935? I mean, he did trademark the name cheeseburger. Well, guess
what... I don't know!
And I don't really care because the
cheeseburger is here now and it's here to stay. All you need is some
hamburger meat, cheese, a bun and you're good to go! But I'm sure you
don't need me to tell you that you don't have to use actual meat and
you can use vegan cheese if you want. Save the cows people, save
So, how can you celebrate today? Well, where's your favorite
place to get a cheeseburger? I mean, you can opt for fast food if you
want or you can go to a slightly slower restaurant and get a beefier
cheeseburger. Today is all about filling up that stomach in the best
possible way so don't forget to get something on the side! And if
you don't feel like going out to eat then I hope you have some ground
hamburger meat and cheese on hand. Fire up that grill and get to
slapping some patties together. And you might as well invite some
friends over for one last barbeque before it starts getting too cold
out. What kind of celebration is it if you celebrate alone, right?
it pays to be a creative celebrator so think about how you can perfect
and modify the basic cheeseburger. You could use different kinds of
buns and meat. You can use a variety of different toppings. But can you
imagine the possibilities when it comes to cheese? There are so many
different types of cheese out there! So stock up on your cheese and
have people sample all kinds of combinations. You might just find your
new favorite way to make a cheeseburger! Have a great day and
hey, are you going to flip those?
