WORLD'S FIRST HAMBURGER
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What was the world's first hamburger?
There are many claimants for
serving the world's first hamburger so we'll let you decide.
In 1802 the Oxford Dictionary defined Hamburg steak as
salt beef, but it was not yet a hamburger.
Charlie Nagreen of Seymour, Wisconsin was believed to
have sold hamburgers at the Outagamie County Fair in 1885. Apparently Charlie
went to the fair to sell meatballs but the fairgoers had a hard time eating
them while walking so Charlie flattened them out and stuck them between two
slices of bread.
town of Seymour, Wisconsin is so sure that the hamburger was invented by Charlie
Nagreen that they even have a hamburger museum, festival and parade.
Also in 1885 Charles and Frank Menches ran out of pork
sausage patties so they substitute ground beef to sell at a fair. Luckily they
were at the Hamburg country fair, and named there creation the hamburger. Good
thing the fair wasn't in Frankfurt.
Claims have been made that Oscar Weber Bilby was the
first to serve hamburgers on a bun at his farm in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1891.
Louis Lassen of New Haven, Connecticut has been
credited many times as serving the first hamburger from his lunch wagon in 1900.
In Texas they claim the hamburger was invented in 1904
by Texan Fletch Davis attending the World's Fair in St. Louis.
There is also reference to the hamburger being created
at the Canadian National Exhibition in 1912.
