Have you enjoyed a delicious cheeseburger lately? Well you should, because today is National Cheeseburger Day!
There are several theories about the origins of the cheeseburger, but the most generally accepted story is that a chef named Lionel Sternberger created the cheeseburger around 1926 in Pasadena, Calif.
Apparently, a customer at Stenberger’s restaurant asked for a slice of cheese on his hamburger order. Sternberger complied, eventually added the new addition to his menu, and started the very successful cheeseburger trend. So, in honor of the cheeseburger, start up those grills and start cooking. Try a new cheeseburger joint with some friends or maybe buy a funny cheeseburger-inspired gift for a special burger lover in your life.
