It’s International Hamburger Day today, meaning we have the perfect excuse to eat a delicious burger in celebration of the classic dish! Burgers have certainly come a long way in recent decades. It’s thought the burger originated in Germany, where beef products were considered a delicacy in the city of Hamburg. While this appears to be a precursor to burgers, the burgers of today didn’t develop until after German immigrants brought their beef products with them to the United States, where they became the food we know and love.
These days, burgers have become almost like their own art form, where the bigger the burger and the tastier the burger, the better. Even though a traditional burger is tasty, there are also some recipes that put a twist on the original. Try some of these hybrid burgers for Food Technology in class today to celebrate International Hamburger Day!
