Today was National Hamburger Day.
Of course this made me think of a post that I wrote four years ago titled The First Hamburger.
Mr. Gray started serving hamburgers in his cafe in Clarinda, Iowa in 1901 or 1902.
Looking at the picture above, this is exactly the way I cook hamburgers.
For Mr. Gray’s original burgers catsup and mustard were standard and he always had a bowl of chopped onions on the counter. I add a bit of mayo and some pickles, but other than that I stick to the original burger.
Tomorrow on Memorial Day there will be a lot of hamburgers on the grill. A day late for National Hamburger Day, but a tradition.
I plan on heading to the cemetery tomorrow for the Memorial Day Observance.
Did you eat a hamburger today to celebrate National Hamburger day?
