Grilled Burgers with Horseradish Sauce Recipe

Grilled Burgers with Horseradish Sauce Recipe

These burgers are a twist on the traditional backyard favorite. A dollop of dill and horseradish dressing gives extra bite to this standard. They are made with lean ground beef to keep the fat content low, and includes grated carrots and chopped fresh mushrooms to sneak in some veggies.—Deb Anderson, Joplin, Missouri

"I made these for dinner tonight for the hubby and I and they were very good! I did change a few things- in the sauce, I just used dill relish and omitted the dill weed called for because we are dill pickle people and that is what I had on hand; I replaced the carrot with finely chopped sweet red pepper; I added 2 tablespoons of seasoned bread crumbs since I didn't have any fresh parsley and I wanted to give it some more flavor; I added sliced cheese the last minute of cooking; I used ground turkey instead of beef. Lots of changes, but it still made a tasty, quick meal."
