Firing up the grill this holiday weekend? Cook these burgers over medium heat in a cast iron pan alongside your other grilling favorites – the burgers may crumble if placed on the grill directly.

Burgers can be found everywhere from restaurant menus to backyard grills. But have you ever wondered how they became so popular? The word hamburger has origins in the town of Hamburg, Germany, where traditional hamburgers were first invented. But it was American chefs who really created the burger we know and love. Now, burgers come in many varieties and even use foods like beans instead of meat for a flavorful, nutritious twist. What’s your favorite way to eat a burger?
