Someday I’ll consider stopping these frequent “Food Day” posts — but two of my favorites happened to occur during this, my birthday week!
Coincidence, I think NOT!
Wednesday, September 18th is National Cheeseburger Day!
I mean, of course it was created by a 16-year-old boy!
The boy was reportedly working at his father’s restaurant when he decided to slap a slice of cheese onto a sizzling hamburger, and the cheeseburger was born.
The largest cheeseburger made in the world weighed in at 777 pounds! It was created two summers ago, in June of 2011 at a California county fair.
Fairgoers were able to purchase 99-cent portions of the 1.375 million calorie burger!
In my personal opinion — you don’t even need the bun! In fact, I feel the bun takes away from the taste of the burger.
All you need is a thick burger patty and TONS of condiments!
Some of my favorite condiments include:
- cheese (sharp cheddar, feta, Greek)
- sauteed mushrooms/onions
- sun-dried tomatoes
I also decided to offer you here five fabulous looking Paleo burger ideas!
This burger is topped with sharp cheddar goat cheese, sweet potato strings, avocado, spinach and roma tomato. All it needs is bacon 🙂
This thick burger is topped with tons of guacamole and thinly sliced parsnip fries!
This burger is offers a combination of a hamburger and a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, with the addition of homemade jelly and sunbutter, almond butter or tahini!
Ingredients for this burger, that is mostly MEAT, includes onion, mustard, American cheese, Thousand Island dressing, pickles and lettuce.
Not your traditional burger, this “burger” includes a slab of salmon, avocado, onion and tomato sandwiched in between two “buns” made using sweet potato noodles.
There isn’t much better than an avocado/guacamole stuffed burger! The original recipe came from CivilizedCavemanCooking.com!
