No Ham , so why it is called Hamburger?

I never even thought about this fact that there is no’ Ham’ in the hamburger, infect I was just so sure that ‘Ham’  must be the compulsory ingredient in the hamburger but I was just so wrong like so many other people in this whole wide world.

Hamburger History:

After entering into the craving zone then I came to know that there was never ever ‘ Ham ‘ in the hamburger. This word simply comes from the place known as Hamburg.

These Hamburgers could be served with side of Salad followed by the dessert of refreshing Strawberries.

  • All beef hamburger :   A very high quality of  hamburger patty , which is entirely made up of minced beef and seasonings is  also know as ‘ all_beef hamburger”.
  • Cheesy Burger : Hamburger is often served with cheese , lettuce , tomato , Onion etc but the one which is topped with so many cheese is called a Cheese Burger.

  • Bacon cheeseburger: Hamburger made from cheese and bacon .
  • BBQ burger : Made from ground beef , onions and barbeque sauce .
  • Buffalo burger : Made from Buffalo’s meat , they are far better than beef and chicken burgers.

Hamburger patty Recipe :

There are variety of ways to make Beef patty but the one hamburger patty recipe which i used here is my family’s favorite one , it is not only juicy but also hiding inside some chopped vegetables (from the kids ) along with some spices and a buttery touch.Just like my Fire Chicken , Tuscan Chicken and Fajita Pizza.

Helping the patty in holding the ingredients together is the gram flour. You can also make pure beef patty by only excluding the vegetables and by using the same recipe.
