The hamburger outline is named hamburger because it resembles the hamburger sandwich in its organization. The topic or paragraph is sandwiched between two sentences where all the details are inside. The template starts with a title at the top to write the main idea or headline of the topic. The first layer of the sandwich is where the main idea of the topic or the opening sentence should be written. Next, there are three boxes where all the details should be written. The bottom layer is where the closing sentence should be written or the conclusion of the topic. This template can be used for many kinds of paragraphs.
