Hamburgers – How did they come to be?
Many myths surround “America’s favorite food”. A lot of people have claimed to be the first to place a beef patty between two slices of white bread; the truth, however, is that we do not know the original creator of the hamburger.
“The Art of Cookery made Plain and Easy” by Hannah Glasse in 1758 included the “Hamburg sausage” and suggested that it should be served with toasted bread under it.
There is also a belief that the hamburger was first eaten in Hamburg, Germany. Even though it’s true the inspiration is believed to have come from Hamburg, the sandwich was, in fact, created much later.
During the 19th century, Hamburg became popular for its beef from countryside cows. Hamburg beef was commonly chopped into bits, moulded into patties, seasoned, and, as there was no available method of preservation, cooked immediately. Eventually, Hamburg beef became a substitute for other beef varieties.
When German immigrants arrived in America and established their restaurants, an Americanized version of the Hamburg steak was a regular feature on the menu.
To prepare the Hamburg steak:
First, tenderize a piece of steak to break the fibre. Then, fry two or three finely minced onions in butter until lightly browned. Spread your onions over the tenderized meat and fold the ends together. Tenderize the meat and onions together to keep the onions in the middle. Grill for about three minutes, then spread with butter, salt, and pepper.

Let’s get healthy by making some tasty and nutritious turkey burgers.
Tip: The secret to making a great turkey burger is to find a balance between drying out the meat enough to bind with the burger and topping it with extra fat to keep it moist.
- 1½ pound of ground turkey/frozen turkey patties
- ¼ cup of Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup shredded cheese
- 1 egg
- Preheat grill to high heat
- Beat your egg slightly in a large bowl, then add all the other ingredients and mix thoroughly. You can do this with your hand.
- Split the mixture into 4 equal sizes and form into patties. If you are not going to cook immediately, you can put the patties into the refrigerator. This will also help the ingredients blend in properly. So if you are not in a hurry, you can refrigerate it for about 30 minutes.
- Sprinkle salt and pepper on the burger.
- Spray your grill with a little olive oil and allow it to cook for about 5-6 minutes.
- During the last minutes, add your cheese, cover and grill for a minute.
- Assemble your burger and it is ready
Super easy and super delicious!

Seasoning your premade turkey burger
There are several ingredients you can use to season your premade turkey burger.
Using special spices: mix your spices together, then sprinkle a bit of it on the patty and allow it to cook. You have to add your spices carefully so that it does not get too tasty.
For your special seasoning, I will suggest cinnamon which adds an exotic taste to your burger or the garam marsala which adds heat and flavour. Asides these ones, you can get creative and try whatever spice you want to.
Using vegetables: To season your burger with vegetable, simply sauce your vegetables in a pan after your burger has been cooked.
Tomatoes, onions, pepper and mushroom are vegetables you should include when preparing your frozen turkey burger.
Using sauces: There are several sauces to choose from. These include the bottled or homemade barbecue sauce, steak sauce, or hot pepper sauce. What about the leftovers of browned bits of burger in your cooking pan? You can make your sauce from that as well. You do not need to allow it go to waste.
You can either pour the sauce over the burger before cooking or after.
It all depends on what you prefer.
Using herbs: Dry or fresh herbs can be used when preparing the frozen turkey burger. However, I will advise that you use the dry herbs. The fresh herbs have moisture in it that steams the burger and so, it will not give you the brown crust.
To season with herbs, simply add your herbs to the mayonnaise, and then spread on the bread or bun.
For your herbs you can try the basil, lemon thyme, oregano, or the rosemary.
There is just so much you can do with your turkey burger. Give your kids something to look forward to at home. Make them some burger!
