Today we honor a timeless classic: The Hamburger to kick off NATIONAL HAMBURGER DAY – May 28!
Did you Know
While in Germany I just had to find a restaurant that serves hamburger – after all, They originate from that country. I did some research and found that beef from German Hamburg cows was minced and combined with garlic, onions, salt, and pepper, then formed into patties. While its U.S origins are unclear, it was indeed Americans who were the first to place the meat patty between two buns thus creating one of our nation’s most recognized dishes.

National Hamburger Day Recipe
One of my favorite things to do is add fresh homegrown ingredients to my burgers. In this recipe, I use chives and garlic that are super easy to grow.

Preparing The Burger
I usually load up my sandwich with veggies but the meat marinated in the beer, the spices and onion were just perfect on their own. On this sandwich, I added a little mustard and my favorite sweet hot pickles! What do you think of the fries on the side? These were sliced potatoes prepared in truffle oil.
