Friends – friends – friends. You won’t believe what today is. Today is National Cheeseburger Day. Can you believe that?! Now I’ll tell you a secret at the Hotel Thompson. Who lives at the Hotel Thompson and loves to eat cheeseburgers of all kinds, shapes and/or sizes? If you guessed Bacon’s dad, YOU are so right!
I think Bacon’s dad has like an endless tummy or maybe multiple tum-tum’s like a cow. Yeah, that could be it! Of course, he has gotten better in his age… something about not being able to eat like he once did. But he still loves a good juicy burger.
Did you know that cheeseburgers can be dated back to the 1920’s? In 1928, a cheeseburger officially made it to the menu of O’Dell’s which is a restaurant in Los Angeles, California. It was on the menu listed as a cheeseburger smothered with chili. Can you guess in 1928 how much the burger cost? Would you believe 25 cents!? Nowadays, look at the prices of a good juicy burger. It will surely set you back a good $10.00! In the 1930’s, the founder of Steak n’ Shake Gus Belt actually applied for a trademark on the word cheeseburger.
Do you know what the top 4 cheeses for a cheeseburger are? 1) American Cheese 2) Cheddar Cheese 3) Swiss Cheese and finally 4) Pepper Jack
I guess they didn’t ask us here in the south how we like our burgers topped with cheese. Of course, we would say with Pimento Cheese and Bacon!

I like the way you think. Fries complete the burger experience for sure. XOXO – Bacon
