These burgers are seriously the best. They are great for all of you summer cookouts and upcoming tailgates this fall! I love how easy it is to double, triple or quadruple the recipe. You can adjust this to fit any crowd.

The burgers are very easy to make. Simply combine ground beef, an egg, horseradish, chili sauce, and Worcestershire sauce. Form into patties and cook. You can cook the burgers on the grill or inside in a skillet. Here are the instruction on how to cook burgers in a cast iron skillet:

We topped the burgers with cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, pickles, mayonnaise, and mustard. I usually use American cheese on burgers because it melts beautifully. Feel free to use your favorite cheese. Anything goes!

We usually serve the burgers with some fries, potato salad, or pasta salad. Here are a few of our favorite recipes from the blog that go great with these yummy burgers:

  1. Thank you so much for this recipe! I made these tonight and they’re awesome! The horseradish and chili sauce give these burgers so much flavor, like a “beefiness”, for lack of a better description, without “telling on themselves”. I don’t think I’ll ever make burgers any other way from now on!

  2. I like the sound of this mixture. New flavor combo. I love a good burger too. Thanks for sharing.

    Wishes for tasty dishes,

  3. My grandmother had an old adage, your condiments and add-ons should never be taller than your burger and bun. She also never cared for anything cold to be a topping on a hot hamburger. That one I agree with. The tall deal I'm still working on.
