Pork and apple Burgers 


For the meat mixture 

  • 750g pork mince 
  • 75g fresh breadcrumbs 
  • 2 tsp finely chopped fresh sage 
  • 1 dessert apple, coarsely grated 
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped 
  • 1 free-range egg, lightly beaten 
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper 

To serve as burgers 

  • 1 tsp olive oil 
  • 4 burger buns 
  • 1 head Little Gem lettuce, leaves separated 
  • 2 tomatoes, thickly sliced 
  • ½ small red onion, cut into rings 
  • English mustard, to taste 
  • cheese 


  • Preheat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5 and line a baking tray with foil. 
  • Place all the meat mixture ingredients, into a bowl with a good pinch of salt and black pepper. Start mixing with a spoon then finish with your hands to get it totally mixed. 
  • Divide the mixture in half and place one half into a bowl or box, cover and place in the fridge until needed – it should be used within 2 days. Divide the rest into 4 and form into burger shaped patties. 
  • If you aren’t BBQ the burgers, heat olive oil in a frying pan until medium hot, then add the burgers and fry on each side for 45-60 seconds until just browned. Lift out and place onto the lined baking tray. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes until cooked through and hot. 
  • Served the burgers in the buns with mustard, cheese, lettuce, tomato and onion.
