September 18 is National Cheeseburger Day. That’s right; the humble cheese slice and beef patty encased in a bun has its own food holiday. Even if you’re on a strict diet, you need to partake in one cheeseburger today. It’s the law.
“Cheeseburger Day” might be a stupid, meaningless gimmick – but it’s also a perfect excuse to cut loose one day each year. Just remember: a single burger isn’t going to hurt you – in fact, it can even be healthier than a store-bought salad, depending on the dressing. So head to your local burger joint and go nuts!
Once you’ve got your burger in hand, kick back and enjoy some of our favouroite burger posts, which we’ve assembled below. It’s all here: from the top 10 hamburger joints in Australia to our most fearsome DIY burger creations.
