Leila Fadel's quick segment with Chris Carosa about his book Hamburger Dreams was doubly timely for us.

One, of course, Memorial Day weekend — and the unofficial start of summer and grilling season — just passed by.

And second, we just had to clarify to a car full of youngsters that the dish is, in fact, beef and not pork.

So we appreciated learning through why this iconic American dish has a somewhat confusing name.

You can listen to or read about the hamburger's roots on NPR's website.
