National Double Cheeseburger Day Date in the current year: September 15, 2024

National Double Cheeseburger Day What’s even better than a cheeseburger? Of course a delicious double cheeseburger with two juicy patties and two slices of melty cheese. September 15 is the perfect day to treat yourself to a double cheeseburger because it is National Double Cheeseburger Day.

A cheeseburger is a variation of hamburger topped with cheese. As a rule, the slice of cheese is placed on top of the patty while it is still hot from cooking, which allows the cheese to melt. Cheeseburgers sold at fast food restaurants are usually made with processed cheese, but when cooking cheeseburgers at home, any meltable cheese will do. You can use Cheddar, Swizz cheese, Monterey Jack, mozzarella, or even blue cheese if you’re feeling adventurous and want to make your cheeseburgers a little more sophisticated.

Hamburgers became a widely available food in the United States around the late 19th century, but adding cheese on top of the beef patty didn’t become common until the 1920s. The exact origin of the cheeseburger is unclear; there are several competing claims regarding its invention.

According to the most popular account, the first cheeseburger was made in 1924 by Lionel Sternberger, a 16-year-old fry cook who was working at his father’s sandwich shop, The Rite Spot, in Pasadena, California. He decided to add a slice of cheese on top of a sizzling hamburger and liked the result.

Other restaurants that claim to have invented the cheeseburger include O’Dell’s in Los Angeles, California, Kaelin’s Restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky, Humpty Dumpty Drive-In in Denver, Colorado, and Steak ’n Shake in Normal, Illinois.

A double cheeseburger is a cheeseburger that has two patties. An extra patty usually comes with an additional slice of cheese. Double cheeseburgers are sold by many fact food chains including Burger King, Dairy Queen, Del Taco, Five Guys, Hardee’s, In-N-Out Burger, McDonald’s, Shake Shack, Sonic, Wendy’s, Whataburger, Wienerschnitzel, and many more.

Double cheeseburgers are twice as filling as regular cheeseburgers and are comfort food for many people. One double cheeseburger can be enough to keep you sated for hours, especially if you add extra toppings, fries and a drink to make your double cheeseburger meal even more filling and satisfying.
