We didn't try the relish. The FLAVOR of these burgers is REALLY good, however, we had a hard time getting them to stay together on the grill. Next time, we'll try pan frying.

Very good burgers!! Very tasty with the horseradish and mustard, but we especially liked the relish, love roasted red peppers and black olives and thyme is one of my favourite herbs. I would be tempted next time to add slices of the left over roasted red pepper to the finished hamburger with onion and tomato. The basil leaves were a nice touch, I may also add some chopped basil to the relish next time. Thanks for sharing a really good hamburger recipe.

"Excellent!" was what my husband declared. This one is a keeper, we both loved it. Simple, easy and very flavorful.
