Do You Know Where Your Burger Comes From?

How do you like your burger? Mine well done with cheese, mayo and bacon, hold the pickles. I love Burgers! Had one yesterday for lunch. Well apparently there is a burger battle going on as to where the burger came from. Now it is heading to the Wisconsin Senate.

Three communities claim to be the home of the hamburger: Seymour, Wis.; Athens, Texas, and New Haven, Conn.

Now, Wisconsin lawmakers are getting into the beef. The state Assembly has passed a resolution declaring the burger was born in 1885 when Charles "Hamburger Charlie" Nagreen of Seymour started calling his ground beef patty-in-a-bun a hamburger.
