I pronounce it OSS-burgers....just to minimize the otherwise inevitable snickering.

I annunciate it as a-spare-gers with a "solid" G, not a "soft" one that equates with words that start with the letter J.

I have never expressed it in the American stereotypical mispronunciation: "Ass-burgers"

AS-per-gers. Like that, but I make the first "s" sound like a "z"
