A cheeseburger is a hamburger topped with cheese. Traditionally the slice of cheese is placed on top of the meat patty, but the burger can include many variations in structure, ingredients, and composition

 

Adding cheese to hamburgers became popular in the late 1920’s to mid 1930’s, and there are several completing claims as to who created the first cheeseburger. Lionel Sternberger is reputed to have invented the cheeseburger in 1926 at the age of 16 when he was working as a fry cook at his father’s Pasadena, CA sandwich shop, “The Rite Spot,” and “experimentally” dropped a slab of American cheese on a sizzling hamburger.
