National Double Cheeseburger Day is an annual holiday celebrated on September 15th. It was created in honor of the juicy and flavorful double cheeseburger. This dish is very popular in America and beyond.
It is believed that the creation of the cheese burger belongs to Lionel Sternberger. His family had their own business – a small diner. Once at work, he decided to refine the classic burger recipe (it is very simple: a bun, a meat patty and a little spice). Now melted cheese was still placed inside the bun.
Such a small refinement allowed the creation of a new dish, which began to be called a cheeseburger. The diner quickly became a success, and the recipe was sold around the world. A little later, someone thought that a burger could be made bigger by adding another slice of cheese and a patty. The result is a double cheeseburger.
- The weight of the largest cheeseburger in the world was 800 kg. He entered the Guinness Book of Records.
- Jimmy Buffett dedicated a song to this dish and called it “Cheeseburger in Paradise”.
- Americans spend more on burgers annually than they spend on cars, education, and computers.
