Ever wondered about since how long are burgers eaten? Though like most other foods, the exact origin is a bit of controversy, earliest mentions for the hamburger runs to a book published in 1700’s. Back then, anything with ground beef and bread with sauces was referred to as hamburger. Now with time, they have evolved into what we know today, burgers. Burger is a sandwich of bread roll that makes a frail attempt to hide the delicious patty, cheese, pickles, veggies and sauces; the cheesiness blended with the crunch of the patty and the tang of pickled veggies and salad leaves in the burger is worth drooling for.
The patty that is used in burgers can be either fried, shallow fried, grilled or broiled. Both fresh veggies and pickled veggies are used in preparing the burger. Mustard sauce, ketchup, cheese spread, mayonnaise, and various other sauces can be used to prepare burgers. Traditional burger buns have a fine and crusty layer on top but all the more soft and chewy within.
