Pork and Apple Burgers

I forgot to take a picture of these. My kids have already eaten them, so I imagine they must have tasted pretty nice… 😀

I would think you could successfully make these with turkey mince too. They really hold their shape during cooking, and they are very low in fat if you choose your mince carefully. Great for all the family, especially if like me you’re trying to reduce the amount of beef you eat.

Makes 4 decent sized burgers-

400g/scanty 2 cups lean pork mince

1 free range egg (mine was so free range it came from a friend’s farm!)

1 well flavoured dessert apple, finely chopped

2-3 tbsp fresh breadcrumbs

1 tbsp finely chopped fresh sage

  • Preheat grill to a hot setting
  • Combine all the ingredients except the breadcrumbs in a large bowl
  • Add enough breadcrumbs to make the mixture come together
  • Scoop up a hand-sized amount and roll into a ball between your palms
  • Flatten into a burger between your palms
  • Grill for around 13-15 minutes, turning occasionally. Serve with salad if you’re good and freshly prepared chips if you’re not. 😀

As I was feeding this to my kids, I did not season with salt and pepper, but you could do so if you wished.

    I didn’t like this when I read the title, but I think the recipe turned me around a bit. I can even find free range eggs in my part of the country. I have an incredible farmers market within two miles of the house.

    Farmer’s markets are great. The eggs my friend gives me are amazing- the yolks are so bright yellow, and they are really delicious.

    You have a knack of making recipes sound so delicious. I was planning on making this tonight but it appears you can’t buy minced pork in Carryduff and I can’t venture further afield on my mission as my car is being fixed….tomorrow night!

    I hope it will taste as good as you are hoping! 🙂 It makes me feel really happy to think people enjoy making my recipes! Thank you!
