18 September – Cheese Burger Day
Fire up the grill or head to your favorite restaurant because today is Cheese Burger Day!
There are several theories about the origins of the cheese burger. One story claims that the cheese burger was created between 1924 and 1926 by a chef named Lionel Sternberger. As the story goes, a homeless man dining at Sternberger’s restaurant in Pasadena, California, suggested the addition of a slice of cheese to his hamburger order. Sternberger complied, eventually added it to his menu, and the rest is history.
Today, cheese burgers are a staple at restaurants. Hungry yet? Enjoy a delicious cheese burger in honour of Cheese Burger Day!
