If you thought you were done firing up the grill this week - think again! Today, May 28, is National Hamburger Day! That’s right, this week you have full permission to keep chowing down on some more juicy, meaty goodness.
Although, let’s be honest, who really needs an excuse to eat a burger? There’s nothing more satisfying than an amazing burger, especially if you grill it to perfection and the backyard crowd is singing your sizzling praises.
Hamburgers have been a staple of the American diet for decades. In fact, PBS reports that Americans eat nearly 50 billion burgers a year, which translates to three burgers a week for every single person in the United States. Now that's a lot of beef!
The origin of the hamburger in the US remains debated, but it’s roots are traced back to Hamburg, Germany, where beef from Hamburg cows was minced and formed into patties to make Hamburg steaks. Now, the burger is so beloved here that it gets its own day so that we may savor in its goodness.
