Sure, there are larger burgers in the record books—monstrosities like the 8, 266 pound hamburger created at the Burger Fest in Seymour, Wisconsin, on August 4, 2001. But when it comes to the largest burger served day in and day out to ordinary folks, the prize goes to pljeskavica, a grilled beef and veal patty from the Eastern European region once known as Yugoslavia. Every new country in this ancient land of grilling and religious tension has a version, but even hard-liners of opposing political camps will go out of their way to eat a pljeskavica made by a Bosnian grill master. Traditionally, the burger is eaten with a knife and fork and with bread on the side, but you can certainly serve it on a pita bread as a sandwich.
