Interesting article about origin of hamburgers Mon, 01/8/07 4:47 PM (permalink)

In addition to Louis Lunch, Hamburg NY and Austin TX make legitimate claims to the origin of the hamburger, prior to 1900. Also notable in this article is the origin of the steamed cheeseburger in Central Connecticut.

    Check again, they started in Gary, Indiana.

    One claim of inventing the Hamburger sandwich comes from Charlie Nagreen of Seymour, Wisconsin. In 1885, he tried selling fried meatballs at the Outagamie County fair, but customers found them hard to eat while walking around the fair, so Nagreen flattened it and made it into a sandwich he called the "hamburger". (Seymour is home to the Hamburger Hall of Fame and the world's largest hamburger, weighing in at 8,266 pounds.

    You can't argue with that.

    Cheers.

        That wouldn't even be a snack for a Wisconsin woman.
