hamburgerhelperToday may seem redundant, but apparently, a slice of cheese makes a big difference.  It’s National Cheeseburger Day!  National Cheeseburger Day is just like National Hamburger Day except with cheese.  Now that we realize cheese is so important its entrance requires an extra day of celebration, I’d like to point out a peculiar fact. Why is Hamburger Helper called Hamburger Helper instead of Cheeseburger Helper?  The box doesn’t come with burger meat and most of the dishes have cheese in them.  I guess alliteration bested cheese from its spotlight.

Celebrate today with a cheeseburger.  Grill if you can, if not, don’t.  I’ve recently become a pescatarian, so I’ll be celebrating, but the burger to my cheese will be made of brown rice, black beans, and mushrooms.  Remember the cheese and…



All vegans and vegetarians, be warned.  We are about to get vulgar! It is National goldburgerHamburger Day! One of the most American things you can put on your plate is a bun with a hunk of meat in the middle. Whether you want bison, venison, turkey, chicken, bean curd, or all-American beef, the patty is the essence of this delectable, juicy, staple meal! A flexible dish, to be gourmeted or trailer parked, you can top it with everything under the sun, even gold flakes (if you are willing to pay for it). Talk about the Midas Touch!   Here is a list of some of the most expensive burgers I’ve ever seen.  Which would you try?  

Today, don’t just eat a burger!  Celebrate by getting creative and down right stupid with those toppings.   Have a burger smorgasbord party!  Guests can bring a beverage (you know I mean alcoholic) and a topping, the host can supply the meat.

My ideal burger would be between a toasted sourdough bun.  A pattyburger shirt made with the best piece of beef pre-seasoned wth salt, pepper, and jalapeno juice.   It would be topped with grilled halloumi cheese, grilled pineapple, and warm applesauce that has been boiled with bacon.  Also, piled on that juicy piece of meat would be grilled sweet pickles, butter lettuce, cold tomatoes, and an easy fried egg under a piece of melted brie, and finally, it would be sauced with a hint of Naptown crab sauce.   Yummm, yummmm, yum.  At least I think so.

Today, eat a good burger and watch Goodburger or Eddie Murphy Raw!
