These were very good. Topped them with Cheddar slices as that's what I had and served them with baked fries and a Horseradish dipping sauce. Tasty! Made for All Fired Up Photo Grilling Tag.

I'm a big fan of horseradish and loved this cheesey, tangy and very juicy burger. I did use the Havarti this time around, but I honestly think you can use any cheese you want and it would still be just as yummy!
