Some things are just incredibly Minnesotan. Lakes. Wind chill. High school hockey. And the Juicy Lucy.
The Juicy Lucy is a sort of unusual take on the cheeseburger. The cheese doesn’t just sit on top of the patty – it’s also placed between two thinner patties. The cheese melts inside the combined patty as it cooks and oozes out once you bite into it, like a delicious cheese volcano.
They say it was invented in the 1950s in south Minneapolis, but there is some dispute as to where. This has sparked a friendly rivalry among some restaurants that claim to be the home of the Lucy.
While we don’t know what actually happened, it was clearly a hit. Fast forward to today, and the Juicy Lucy burger is considered a Minnesota delicacy. Some say it’s the best food in Minneapolis-St. Paul.
