Today, you can hardly imagine a MC meeting without a bunch of burgers being flipped, and burgers are eaten in all walks of life all over the world. Ludvig Lassen from Denmark, who later settled in the United States and changed his first name to Louis, is considered to be the first to serve a hamburger when a busy customer came in and wanted a quick bite that he could take in his hand.
