Sizzle and yum! Gear up and fire up those grills because National Burger Day is right around the corner on August 22. This tasty celebration traces its roots back to the early 19th century when the first Hamburg steak (the patty we now know and love that makes up the crucial component of the hamburger) was introduced in the United States by German immigrants. Over time, this humble beef patty sandwiched between two pieces of bread has grown into an iconic symbol of American cuisine, cherished with a variety of toppings that range from the traditional lettuce and tomato to more adventurous options like pineapple and peanut butter. Ready your appetites because it's time to relish the day with your favorite patty, toppings, and bun for the ultimate Burger experience!
