Cheeseburger. Nuff Said.
Jose Mier Gastronomy with another of the most famous foods in the world. This one is on the top 50 foods of the world according to tasteatlas.com. I’m talking about none other than the cheeseburger. If you had to pick one food to symbolize a nation, the hamburger would be the symbol of United States. And here in the good old US of A we don’t just eat our hamburgers plain. Ninety-nine times out of a hundred they’re going to be cheeseburgers.
Because this is one of the most popular foods in the world and can be found in just about every country on earth, of course you’re going to find millions of recipes online. Every burger chef has his or her own secret recipe and method to cooking the best cheeseburger in the world. Since there are so many recipes available it’s up to you to decide which one you want to try. However, I just happened upon a very interesting video on YouTube which purports to be a recipe from 1912.
As you watch the video you’ll see immediately that this is definitely old school cooking including a lot of grease and oil to cook the burgers, melt the cheese and give everything that special flavor that comes from immersing foods in hot oil. Nobody said this was health food so be warned. Regardless, this looks like a fantastic recipe and one that I am going to try very soon.
Speaking of old school, if you’re in my neck of the woods, Sun Valley, California, one of our most iconic burger joints is the Old Time Drive-In located at 8742 Glenoaks Blvd, Sun Valley, CA 91352. I know they don’t deep fry their cheeseburgers like they do in this video but they are among some of the best local eats you’ll find in my area.
Let’s all get out the grease, deep fry out burgers and enjoy one of America’s most iconic foods.
