Wednesday, September 18th is National Cheeseburger Day!

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!

cheeseburger1According to Wikipedia, the cheeseburger is said to have been first created back in 1926, by 16-year-old Lionel Sternberger.

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!

UntitledA thick, juicy cheeseburger may be my all-time favorite food!

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:

  • bacon
  • avocado
  • jalapenos
  • cheese (sharp cheddar, feta, Greek)
  • chili
  • sauteed mushrooms/onions
  • ketchup/mustard
  • butter
  • pickles/relish
  • sun-dried tomatoes

I also decided to offer you here five fabulous looking Paleo burger ideas!
