My favorite food would have to be a well-made juicy, all the way cooked cheeseburger. I have been eating cheeseburgers throughout my entire life. There has not been a time that I can remember where I have ever turned a cheeseburger. In the following paragraphs I will share with you my earliest recollections of eating a cheeseburger, some of my favorite cheeseburgers, and the origins of the cheeseburger itself. When I was younger I would always love when my grandparents would take me to McDonalds.
I would always get their hamburger happy meal, as most of you know the happy meal consisted of a small juicy hamburger with mustard, ketchup, small diced onions, and juicy pickles accompanied by salty fries, a small toy, and the drink of your choice served in a small red cardboard box. As I grew older I started to want bigger portions of my favorite food. Every time my family and I visited my grandfather, he would make the biggest juiciest hamburgers I have ever seen.
He would take a big handful of ground beef and throw it on the grill, where he would grill it to perfection. He served his cheeseburgers with two big red juicy tomatoes, diced onions, a couple of juicy pickles, ketchup, mustard, barbecue sauce, a slice of American cheese, with the outer layer consisting of freshly toasted buns. To this day I have not eaten a better tasting cheeseburger. There are numerous fast food restaurants all around the world that sell millions of delicious and juicy hamburgers every day.
My personal favorite is the extremely popular Big Mac served at McDonalds. As I stated before , I grew up eating McDonald’s hamburger happy meal, as I grew older I upgraded to the Big Mac. This delicious burger consists of three fresh toasted sesame seed buns, a handful of lettuce, small diced onions, two juicy ground beef patties, and it is the only hamburger that McDonalds sells that comes with Mac sauce on it. While being employed at McDonalds I soon realized that I was not the only one who loved this gigantic sandwich.
I made many of these burgers everyday while working there. It is one of the few hamburgers that will leave customers fully satisfied after eating it. A very close second choice is the double quarter pounder that is also sold at McDonalds, which is also a fan favorite. This delicious burger is served with two sesame seed toasted buns, onions, pickles, mustard, ketchup, two ground beef patties, and two slices of American cheese. Both of these burgers are tasty, juicy, and delicious.
There is much speculation on who created the first hamburger, many individuals and their respective families claim to have created the first hamburger. The hamburger first becomes popular in 1904, at the World’s Fair in St. Louis, Missouri. The hamburger business began in 1902, on the east side of Clarinda’s Courthouse Square by an old German gentleman named Ail Wahl. He almost ran all the cafes out of business because his burgers were so good. Back then, hamburgers were sold for a nickel whereas today you have to pay over a dollar.
Over a century later the hamburger is being sold at almost every restaurant all across the world. The hamburger has come a long way since its humble beginnings. This concludes my report on hamburgers, which has been and always will be my favorite food. Hamburgers might not be an exotic interesting food, but they are still a widely popular and an extremely delicious dish. They are easy to prepare and cheaper than many other foods out there. In a world of constant change hamburgers are just as good, if not better since 1902
