Ah the cheeseburger. It’s as American as, well, American cheese. But that’s as far as the patty’s origin gets narrowed down. Various eating establishments (mostly in California) claim to have invented the cheeseburger.

Whatever the history, the cheeseburger has cemented its place at the American table. Chefs across the country have jumped on the meat wagon, coming up with ideas like Kobe, lobster and brie burgers, or burgers laden with Swiss cheese foam, seared foie gras and Coca-Cola ketchup.
