"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?"

Step 1

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl gently using you hands.

Step 2

For juicier burgers, try to handle the meat as little as possible.

Step 3

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.

Step 6

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

Step 7

Baste with extra barbecue sauce during last 2 minutes of cooking, if desired.

Step 8

Resist the temptation to press down on burgers with a spatula; every drop of juice and fat that you squeeze out makes the burgers that much drier.

Step 9

Serve burgers on whole-grain buns with your favourite burger toppings.

Very good burgers -- we didn't taste the heat from the horseradish -- but these are very good. I used fresh oregano along with the fresh parsley and dry breadcrumbs. Made 6 burgers and topped 4 with cheese. Thanks for sharing!

Tasty Burgers that we enjoyed tonight. Not only were they tasty, but they were moist and juicy. It's a nice change from the regular burger and we do love our burgers around here. Cooked them on the indoor stove-top cast iron grill pan and they came out super. Thanks so much for sharing Luvcookn. Made it for Billboard Tag.

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.

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.
