Grilled, thick, cooked “medium” with cheese, lettuce and tomato on top. That’s how I like my burger. This truly American classic is like a friend that I’m always happy to see.
Why do we love hamburgers so much?
Burgers are easy to eat. The meat has already been ground up and when served on a bun there’s no cutting, only lifting. They are portable and convenient.
Hamburgers are like comfort food. It’s food that puts you in a good mood…that’s appealing! And because burgers come with an array of sides, you can build yours to your own taste.
I also love the price of a cheeseburger compared to other menu items. If you’re going out to dinner and the entrees cost $20, the burger almost always costs half.
Hamburgers are easy to make. Even when in a rush, and still using high quality ingredients you can have a fully cooked slider on your plate in just a few minutes.
But which burger is the best? Readers Digest has an answer as they have published a list of the best burger in every state.
