Tech­ni­cally a sand­wich, re­ally a whole meal

Zululand Observer - Monday - - ZO FEATURE -

Burg­ers truly are a source of hap­pi­ness, thanks to the rich cheesy top­ping, crisp onion, and juicy to­mato that brings it all to­gether with a pickle tang fin­ish. Or maybe you pre­fer your burger with ex­tra top­pings such as caramelised onions, mush­rooms and even chillies.

What­ever the case, it’s plain to see the burger is the per­fect food.

Burger Day, 23 Au­gust, is a celebration of this all-time favourite food.

The his­tory of Burger Day

Burger Day was fist cel­e­brated by Mr Hyde to cel­e­brate their favourite food, and all the places that make them.

Mr Hyde is a com­pany that, among other things, ob­jec­tively re­views food com­pa­nies across the UK.

They say, ‘If we say we like a burger place, it’s be­cause we ate there and liked it.’

Burg­ers were said to be in­vented in Ham­burg, Ger­many.

Ground beef used to be con­sid­ered a waste prod­uct, the left­overs of the prime cuts that were then sold off on the cheap.

These days pre­mium ground beef is the foun­da­tion of one of the world’s most pop­u­lar foods.

It got its start as a ham­burger steak, a pop­u­lar dish served with mul­ti­ple vari­a­tions, but one day it found its way onto a bun, with cheese and ba­con, and has never looked back.

Burger Day is your op­por­tu­nity (ex­cuse?) to in­dulge in as many of these de­li­cious con­coc­tions as you de­sire!

How to cel­e­brate Burger Day

Cel­e­brat­ing Burger Day is one of the eas­i­est, most en­ter­tain­ing, and ab­so­lutely de­li­cious cel­e­bra­tions we can imag­ine. You eat burg­ers. Yes, that sim­ple! En­joy a nice juicy burger as many times as your heart de­sires, in as many dif­fer­ent con­fig­u­ra­tions.

We sug­gest host­ing a great big burger cook­out at your house or at friends, where ev­ery­one makes their favourite va­ri­ety with their favourite top­pings and in­tro­duces it to the group.

Worst case sce­nario, you meet an­other burger you ab­so­lutely can’t live with­out, but that’s what Burger Day is all about.

At the base level, a burger is a piece of meat and a bun with some­thing on it. It’s sim­ple but it seems to make a lot of peo­ple happy
