A Hamburger Today

On this day in 1889, the word "hamburger" first appeared in print in a Walla Walla, Washington newspaper. It's derived from the German word "Hamburger" which means "from Hamburg," - a town in Germany where the locals enjoyed a form of pounded beef called Hamburg steak.

To celebrate the hamburger, check out A Hamburger Today, a great website dedicated to all things hamburger (reviews, beef news, etc.). The reviews are great and the content is well written. Here's a small snippet:

After a couple minutes, it's flip and press, to embed the onion in a bit further. Yeah, yeah, I know. Smashing is bad. Supposedly. But it sure yields a nice crisp crust.

The burger is served on a nice squishy bun with plenty of cool, crisp pickles. Pictured is a cheeseburger, with American, of course. (You have no other choice -- as it should be!)
