Quick Links: National Hamburger Day!!!

Happy National Hamburger Day!!! How convenient Hamburger Day visits just a few days before Memorial Day. I'm not going to get into the History and Legends of Hamburgers. I explored that avenue back in 2008 and quite frankly, it needs a bit of sprucing up. I will tell you that the origin of the word hamburger is believed to have been first cited way back on January 5, 1889 in Walla Walla Washington.

I had a ball gleaning the archives of my Hospitality Search Engine for recipe links to celebrate National Hamburger Day. If your "to die for" hamburger recipe is missing, throw a temper tantrum or simply leave a link comment. If you're in the Round-Up, thank you:) Just in case you're still craving the ultimate hamburger, check out the Blogger Burger Club over @ Cinnamon Spice and Everything Nice and if you're like me, you put Mayo on your hamburger. Just take a look at this recipe for Scrumptious Homemade Mayonnaise as found at the Queen of the Castle's; Lynn. This recipe for Cola Burgers was gleaned from a back issue (2008) of Prize Winning Recipes from Taste of Home.

Have a safe and frolicsome weekend and I'll "see" you on Sunday! Louise
