National Double Cheeseburger Day is an annual holiday celebrated on September 15th, created in honor of the juicy and tasty double cheeseburger. This dish is very popular in America and elsewhere.
It is believed the creation of the cheeseburger is thanks to Lionel Sternberger. His family had their own 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), by adding melted cheese inside the bun.
This small refinement allowed the creation of a new dish, which was 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 the double cheeseburger.
- The weight of the largest cheeseburger in the world was 800 kg. It 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.
