The History of Hamburger Day
The history of Hamburger Day dates back to May 28, 1884.
Inventor Louis Lassen was the first person to serve what he called a “Hamburger” at his restaurant in New Haven, Connecticut. This dish consisted of a ground beef patty topped with sliced onion and a bun. The name “Hamburger” came from Hamburg steak, which emigrated from Hamburg, Germany, in the early 1800s.
This dish was originally made with minced beef brought over by German immigrants and resembled minced pork in taste because they couldn’t afford more expensive cuts of meat. Shortly after Lassen’s new invention, other restaurants began serving their hamburger version. Still, the term was not trademarked until 1935, when Louis’ grandson sold it to the National Biscuit Company (today known as Nabisco). Today, McDonald’s sells millions of hamburgers each year around the world.
