King Burgers

My husband is a grill master, and we like to make up recipes together. The sauce for this juicy burger tastes even better when it's been refrigerated overnight. —Mary Potter, Sterling Heights, Michigan
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    6 servings


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/3 cup beef broth
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons hamburger seasoning, divided
  • 6 hamburger buns, split
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • Optional toppings: Shredded lettuce, sliced tomato and red onion


  • Cut butter into 6 slices. Place on a small plate; freeze until firm. For sauce, in a small bowl, mix mayonnaise, horseradish, mustard, salt and pepper until blended.
  • In a large bowl, combine beef, broth and 1-1/2 teaspoons hamburger seasoning, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into 6 patties. Place a butter slice in the center of each; shape beef around butter, forming 3/4-in.-thick patties. Sprinkle patties with remaining hamburger seasoning.
  • Grill burgers, covered, over medium heat 5-7 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 160°. Spread buns with softened butter. Grill buns over medium heat, cut side down, for 30-60 seconds or until toasted. Serve burgers on buns with sauce and toppings.
    Freeze option: Place patties on a plastic wrap-lined baking sheet; wrap and freeze until firm. Remove from pan and transfer to a freezer container; return to freezer. To use, cook frozen patties as directed, increasing time as necessary for a thermometer to read 160°.

    This burgers were ok, nothing special. I thought they were a bit salty, probably from the broth. They were not as moist as the comments promised. Sauce was good. I've done a similar sauce on other things.

    I really enjoyed these, but the wife did not care for the taste of the burger. The sauce was very good also.

    Very juicy burger. Hamburger Seasoning is: 2 t paprika, 1 1/2 t of each pepper & salt , 1/2 t brown sugar, 1/4 t of each garlic powder-onion powder-cayenne pepper. Never been a big fan of horseradish but this sauce is yummy.
