"What makes this kickin' is the addition of horseradish. Did you know that by adding dried oregano to ground meat was one of the best ways at wiping out e-coli bacteria?"

Shape meat into 4 large patties, about 1 inch thick.

Step 4

Preheat grill to high setting.

Step 5

Brush grill rack lightly with oil.

Grill burgers for about 5-6 minutes per side, or until center is no longer pink.

This is a fantastic burger recipe. I use gluten-free rice bread crumbs which worked perfectly. The horseradish is awesome, I will be making these again soon. Used simple toppings tomato, lettuce and mayo. Thanks for sharing this great recipe.

We loved these burgers...I used the fresh bread crumbs...and topped them with sliced cheese and onions...we really didn't taste the heat from the horseradish...the meat came out nice and moist...made for "Bill Board" tag game...

The horseradish kicks these burgers up a notch - I loved them. I like having egg & crumbs in the burger patty - it gives a nice moist texture. I went crazy with the condiments. I put lettuce, sweet onion, tomatoe, salsa & mushrooms all on the burger. This burger will be made again for sure.
