Have you heard the latest news? According to an Aberdeen News report published on May 27, one of the best food holidays of the entire year is almost here and Americans are in the "moood" to celebrate. May 28, 2014, is National Hamburger Day, an annual food holiday that celebrates the burger. Whether you prefer yours topped with all the trimmings, cradled between a sesame seed bun and/or smothered with ooey gooey cheese, it’s time to celebrate a classic American food staple.
While burgers are as American as apple pie, did you know hamburgers actually originated in Germany? Hamburg, to be exact. How popular are hamburgers? Americans consume about 50 billion burgers a year. And fast food giant, McDonald’s, sells over 75 hamburgers every single second.
Although this holiday celebrates the traditional hamburger, burgers can be made with a host of other products besides beef like salmon, turkey and Portobello mushrooms. In honor of National Hamburger Day, some restaurants will be celebrating the occasion with some pretty tasty deals.
