Pork and Apple burgers - Recipe!

A few weeks ago we went to Winterton Agricultural Show where I had a pork, stuffing and apple burger, it was amazing and I have been craving them ever since. So when I received The Quick After Work Cookbook to review (free of charge) I noticed the recipe for Pork and Apple burgers in there! I was itching to give them a try and see how they compared to the one I had at the show!

Sage, 2 apples, a packet of pork mince and an onion.

The recipe is so easy to follow and all you need to make the burgers are:

2 Dessert apples.
500g of Lean minced pork.
1 small, peeled and finely chopped onion.
2 tablespoons of chopped sage.
Salt & ground black pepper.

Burger baps, shredded lettuce and tomato salsa or ketchup to serve.

To make it you grate the apples into a bowl, you can leave the skin on so peeling them is one less job you have to do. 

Chop the onion and add it to the bowl with the grated apple and add your two tablespoons of sage too. I used dried sage because I am lazy and didn't want to buy fresh and waste it. Then add the minced pork and give it a good mix. I just used my hands. It was easier than using a spoon and it made sure everything was mixed together!

When everything is mixed make it into burger shapes. The ingredients above make 4 burgers but I doubled the quantities and managed to make 9 burgers. I was worried about making them too thick and them not cooking in the middle.

To cook them you fry them with a little oil. I think these would be great on a BBQ too. Cook them all of the way through on a medium heat and serve in a bun. 

Instead of topping with tomato salsa or ketchup I put apple sauce on. You can never have too much apple.

All in all the burgers took about half an hour to cook from scratch and I was very impressed with them. I wouldn't normally make burgers like this myself but I think I will be in the future. My whole family loved them.

I got this recipe from the The Quick After Work Cookbook which I reviewed last week. I was not asked to write this blog post.


  1. now youve got all that space a few herbs in pots is the way to go , Sage is as tough as old boots and will grow in anything

  2. Great flavor combo, sounds delicious X

  3. These sound so good! I think I'm going to have a go at these when we have another BBQ! Thanks for sharing :). x

  4. I'm so impressed you made your own burgers! The flavour combination sounds fab #MMBC

  5. These sound amazing and I’m not a particular fan of pork- gong to have to give these a go, I bet they’re amazing on the barbecue and with some apple & fennel coleslaw!!
    I may use my mini burger press to make sliders for the girls. #MMBC
