Genghis Khan: Inventor of the Hamburger

In a discussion of who actually invented the hamburger, Genghis Khan seems to win. According to sources on MongolianArtist.com Mongols needed a hand free to ride while using the other to eat, and meat was their food of choice.

Mongols chose ground meat, usually the scrapings of lamb or mutton, which they softened under their saddles and then ate raw. From there the hamburger traveled to Russia and eventually to McDonalds.
