Tonight I have been thinking about hamburgers.

I was watching the History Channel while reading a book and a show was on about McDonald’s and Burger King.

First Hamburger - Clarinda, Iowa - Bert Gray - First Hamburger on BunThis made me think about The First Hamburger. One candidate for the first restaurant hamburger is a little cafe on the courthouse square in Clarinda, Iowa.

Hamburgers, Prepared burger patties, iron skilletWhen I make a hamburger at home, I cook it the same way using a cast iron skillet.

Basic Burger, National Burger Day, Ketchup, mustard, picklesI like a basic hamburger with mayo, ketchup, mustard and pickles.

Double-Double, Hamburger, In-N-Out, California, Best BurgerHowever, I do like a good In-N-Out Double-Double if I want a little more with my burger.

Eggo's, Waffle Burger, AOC burger challengeI am also thinking of a burger challenge that I undertook three years ago.

When Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said “Maybe we shouldn’t be eating a hamburger for breakfast, lunch and dinner” I thought about whether  I had ever eaten a hamburger for all three meals in the same day.

I decided to take the AOC Burger Challenge. The burger in the picture above was my breakfast burger with a hamburger patty between two waffles.

I am now hungry for a hamburger, I have only had a couple of them in the last two years.
