While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.
December 21 might have given us a total lunar eclipse to mark the winter solstice, but the meat of the matter is today is National Hamburger Day.
Hamburgers are being touted as hip chow by new restaurants dedicated to redefining the classic staple. Not that the patties needed any help - according to a survey conducted by Men’s Health, Americans eat about 40 billion burgers every year, which comes out to about 150 per person.
Go on and add your favorite toppings, but don’t go overboard, says Chef Jason Paolini, creator of America’s best cheeseburger. “We wanted to just keep it simple and make it perfect.”
