Today is one of the yummiest days of the year — National Hamburger Day — and we’re counting down the minutes until we can fire up the grill or high tail it to our favorite drive thru window to partake in the sesame-seeded festivities. The only thing holding us over until then are your mouthwatering Instagrams of and inspired by the perfectly cooked patty. From adding sinful toppings way beyond bacon + bleu cheese — we spotted someone using a glazed donut as a bun! — to inviting four-legged guests to the dinner table, check out the clever, candid and kooky ways YOU are celebrating this year’s NHBD.
1. Jump inside a giant burger bean bag chair! (We’re way jealous of this kid.)
