How did National Cheeseburger Day start?
Before the cheeseburger, there was the hamburger, born in the early 1900s. It is said that a teenager, named Lionel Sternberger, was the first to put a slice of cheese on a hamburger while working in the sandwich shop of his father. He and his father loved this new style of burger and it became a staple in 1924.
The cheeseburger is now an American classic loved by many. Although there are many types and adaptations, the classic cheeseburger is made with a patty of ground beef and topped with American cheese.
