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


  1. I remember when I was living in the US, it's like almost every week I was eating hamburger. There's time where I got really bored of it but when I leave the US, I do miss it a lot. Glad that next month, I'll be eating hamburger again... in the US ;)

  2. Sigh. Knight loves 'em. Me? No so much...

    Have a great Memorial Day!

  3. I think I posted my burger roll recipe a while back, but I forget. There's my early alzheimers kicking in again. (I tell my kids that when I'm ignoring them.) I do love a good burger! Happy Memorial Day, Louise and Marian!

  4. Wow! What a lot of fabulous links! Makes that hamburger so versatile! Thanks for posting!

  5. I must admit, I ate "the wrong thing" on National Hamburger Day, but I've gotta tell you I'm fascinated by the idea of Cola Burgers. I'm going to have to try this, and then make a Coca-Cola Cake for dessert!

  6. Have a great weekend Louise! and a wonderful burger~

  7. Hard to beat a burger! How I love summer and all of the meals off the grill. Hope you have a great safe weekend! Join us on Facebook and share some of those wonderful recipes...

  9. The National Hamburger Day is fun! We had little sliders to celebrate :) Thanks so much for the shoutout about my brie burger!

  10. I so love a good burger, but mine are pretty basic, no thrills no frills, and yet when I look at some of these links, I think, I really must get out into the culinary world more. Thanks for all the delicious ideas. Now to fire up the grill.

  11. Thanks for all the burger and bun links. I love a great burger and I love them grilled!

  12. I just had a hamburger today! Yay!
    Not knowing it is National Burger Day.

  13. what a stupendous collection of burger goodness. the only burger i WON'T eat is a fish burger, and i love a homemade bun too. yes, the burger is a foodstuff that definitely deserves a day (or a week!) in its honor. :)

  14. My head is spinning...I don't know where to go first!! I love burgers and want to try every single one!! I'm making some tomorrow as a matter of fact, a few days late...but hey, what's new!? ;)

  15. What a nice list. Thanks for sharing!

  16. Selba! You're coming to the US??? When, where, do tell...

    Thanks Channon.

    Marjie, I'll have to check my search and make sure you're in there. I'm sure you are. I know I have a few of your bread recipes bookmarked but I too forget which one. Senile, I suppose...
