burger, beefburger or burger is a sandwich consisting of one or more cooked patties of ground meat, usually beef, placed inside a sliced bread roll or bun. The patty may be pan fried, grilled, or flame broiled. Hamburgers are often served with cheese, lettuce, tomato, bacon, onion, pickles, or chiles; condiments such as mustard, mayonnaise, ketchup, relish, or "special sauce"; and are frequently placed on sesame seed buns. A hamburger topped with cheese is called a cheeseburger.

The term "burger" can also be applied to the meat patty on its own, especially in the UK where the term "patty" is rarely used, or the term can even refer simply to ground beef. The term may be prefixed with the type of meat or meat substitute used, as in "turkey burger", "bison burger", or "veggie burger".

Burgers, from classic cheeseburgers to gourmet options, abound in the USA. A cooked patty of a ground beef being the most popular choice, burgers can also be made with chicken, turkey, bison, and even kangaroo.

The patty is then sandwiched inside a sliced bun and often served with a variety of toppings. Not just for meat lovers, there are several vegetarian versions as well. Sliders, located in Portland, is a great spot to try mini-hamburgers in both meat and meat-free varieties.
