What's more American than a good burger with some delicious cheese stacked on top of it? Not much. That's why it's safe to say everyone should take a minute and celebrate since today is National Cheeseburger day.

A cheeseburger is a simple design. You've got your beef, cheese and bun. It's pretty hard to screw up. The burger and cheese combination can get old after a while. It's a special day so you should go a little crazy.

Fortunately, chees burgers are one of the most customizable foods on the planet. It's easy to accessorize. Throw some mushrooms, jalapenos, chipolte sauce, onions or tomatoes.

Don;'t even get me wrong with what kind of cheese to go with. There's almost no wrong answer. I'm a Swiss fan, personally.

Don;t think that we forgot about the vegans and vegetarians either. Veggie burgers are exquisite. Slather some vegan cheese on that sucker.
