The cheesebirger was invented by burger Incorporated in the 1920's. Burger Incorporated thought that putting cheese and meat on a bun was a good idea, so it was attempted and was successful. The original cheeseburger was called a "slab of meat with cheese on it," but the slab of meat with cheese on it became popular enough that burger Incorporated changed the name to German "burger" and American "cheese" to make cheeseburger. The cheeseburger can have up to a pound of beef for consumer versions, but industrial versions can be up to 100 pounds. Pickles, ketchup, mustard, onions, tomatos, and relish are commonly put on this delectable meal. Bacon is also used for this food.
