A sesame would grow.

Sesame seed from a hamburger bun will not germinate, and nothing will come out of it.

Get one “Big Mac!”

If you get it from a baked good or from anything where the seeds have been roasted, the seed won’t germinate (the heat of cooking is too much). You’d have to get a raw sesame seed for it to germinate, but for the life of me, I have no idea what kind of plant sesame is. I could look it up, but I have to get back to cleaning the kitchen. :P

Sesame(Sesamum indicum) is a flowering plant in the genus Sesamum.” from Wikipedia. Yeah, seeds that have been cooked will not grow.

Be careful, because if you say “Open sesame” when you plant it and are holding your mouth just right, you’ll drop into a vortex from which there is no return.

I grind flaxseeds for the omega 3’s. I also plant them in the spring in the pots with geraniums. I get long stalks with pretty but small blue flowers.

Unless like @Trillian says you mutter some Open Sesame!

As a child, I used to think that “Those thingys on hamburgers” came from those extremely similar looking thingies on strawberries. Therefore, I think you’ll get strawberries.
