Homemade Beef Burger Recipe

Beef Burgers date back as far as 1783, where it featured in an 18th century cookbook called 'The Art of Cookery, Made Plain and Easy'

There are many stories as to the origins of the Hamburger or Beef burger, one that I like is that in 1885, “Hamburger Charlie” , was having little success selling meat balls at a county fair, so he decided to put them between two pieces of bread to make it easier to eat them on the move and they were an instant success.

These Burgers taste a whole lot better if you make your own 'Sesame Seed Burger Buns' to put them in, which is what we did.
