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!
This burger would be a good option for those takeaway nights where you can’t decide whether to order a burger or a pizza!

This hybrid burger may be too big to eat on your own, but it could be perfect for sharing among your Food Technology class.
This sushi burger could be a healthier alternative to traditional burgers that you could cook with your Food Technology class.

This burger collides the two tasty worlds of burgers and delectable pasta! Thankfully though, it doesn’t include actual pasta. The burger does, however, include the ricotta and spaghetti sauce that makes lasagne so iconic.
This is a burger that does include noodles. The ramen burger actually replaces the traditional burger bun with noodles that have been shaped into a bun.
