Cheeseburger

A cheeseburger is a burger with cheese in it. Cheese is a dairy product, made from the milk of cows, goats, or other mammals. There are many different types of cheese, such as cheddar, Swiss, and American.

The first recorded cheeseburger was made in 1924 by Lionel Sternberger. He was working at his father's sandwich shop in Pasadena, California, when he decided to put a slice of cheese on a hamburger. He named it the "cheeseburger."

Since then, cheeseburgers have become a popular food all over the world. Many different restaurants and fast food chains have their own version of the cheeseburger. Some of the most popular are McDonald's Big Mac, Burger King's Whopper, and Wendy's Baconator.
