For lunch or dinner, America’s favorite sandwich is topped off with a piece of cheese and then enjoyed by millions and celebrated each year on September 18 as it is National Cheeseburger Day.
There are many theories to the beginning of the cheeseburger dating back to the 1920′s. One story suggests that Lionel Sternberger is reputed to have invented the cheeseburger in 1926 while working at his father’s Pasadena, California sandwich shop, “The Rite Spot”. During an experiment, he dropped a slice of American cheese on a sizzling hamburger.
To celebrate National Cheeseburger Day, gather some friends together, start up your barbecue grills, grill some hamburger patties, add your favorite cheese, then enjoy! Or… enjoy one of these “tried and true” cheeseburger recipes, as well as some innovative variations:
Happy Cheeseburger Day! 🙂
To grill the burgers, simply roll the patties slightly thicker (3/8 inch) and grill over medium-high heat, 2 minutes per side.

Diner-Style Cheeseburger Sliders
A real slider, as served in the diners of New Jersey, is made from a scant two ounces of beef, pressed thin, cooked on a griddle on a bed of onions, with the buns steamed on top of the meat so that the vapor from the cooking onions passes from the grill, through the beef, and steams into both sides of the warming buns. It’s the steam action of the cooking onions, not the size of the burger, that defines a slider. Optionally served with a slice of cheese and a slice of pickle, they’re simple burger perfection; steamy pillows of onion vapor, griddled beef, and soft bun, that you can eat by the half dozen.
