The Almost Famous "Screamin Burger

Today is a great day in the United States, it’s National Cheeseburger day! Not only are cheeseburgers one of the greatest foods to eat, they come in so many different versions, you are sure to find your favorite.

Let me start you off with a hot take about cheeseburgers. If you are putting any cheese on it besides American Cheese, you are crazy! American Cheese is 100 percent the best cheese for a burger, and America agrees with me. According to a new survey from Brand Eating dot com, American Cheese is the choice for 66 percent of Americans. Good on you America!

National Cheeseburger day also means there are some serious deals going on.

Now, let me talk about my favorite burger toppings.

First, you have to have a good patty, to me the best burgers are a little flatter with some crisp on the edges. A little crust if you will. I can’t stand when someone makes a burger that comes out looking like a baseball. Second, the cheese, it has to be American like I stated before. The cheese also must be perfectly melted, covering the whole burger for ultimate enjoyment! Third, you have to have some onions, a little bacon and a good helping of mustard. You can throw some ketchup on there as well but to me it’s all about the mustard. If you want to get really crazy, you can throw some pickles on there as well, or get really crazy with an egg. Some people may think an egg is overkill, but the mixture of the yoke and burger meat is unbeatable.

With all that said, this has to been the worst, cheeseburger out there!
