My husband and I like to make up recipes together. The sauce for this juicy burger tastes even better when it has been refrigerated overnight. —Mary Potter, Sterling Heights, Michigan

  • 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: Shredded lettuce, sliced tomato and red onion


  1. Cut 2 Tbsp. butter into 6 slices; let remaining butter soften. Place slices in a single layer on a small plate; freeze until firm. For sauce, in a small bowl, mix mayonnaise, horseradish, mustard, salt and pepper until blended.
  2. In a large bowl, combine beef, broth and 1-1/2 teaspoons hamburger seasoning; mix 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 1 tsp. hamburger seasoning.
  3. 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.

Can you freeze King Burgers?

Place patties on a foil-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°.
