Hopefully the United States will end up with a lot of these at the conclusion of the games, because this Gold Medal burger captures perfectly what it means to root for America!

RECIPE: The Better Burger With Homemade Quick Pickles

The cheeseburger was thought to be invented by a man named Lionel Sternberg in California when he experimentally dropped a slice of cheese onto a hamburger patty when he was only 16. This Olympic burger has come a long way since its distant relative was first invented, and this Gold Medal recipe has a burger topped with barbeque sauce, crispy onions, and of course, a slice of American cheese.
