Pork and apple burgers

Having eaten salad for most of this week, today I decided comfort food was in order. Pork and apple burgers aren't quite so hideously unhealthy as you would think. This recipe is adapted from one I cut out of a magazine years ago, before magazines all had nice web-sites you can link too! They are very tasty and also very simple to make.


450g minced pork
2tsps vegetable stock/bouillon powder
2 eating apples, finely grated
1 tbsp chopped fresh chives


Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly. It is easiest, and most fun, to get stuck in and mix it with your hands. Then just divide up the mixture and squish into burger shapes. This quantity makes four large burgers, but of course you can make more smaller ones.

As you can see, the burgers don't have to be beautiful!
 Grill the burgers for about 15 minutes, making sure they are cooked through.

According to the magazine, if you serve this with half a bun it contains 181 calories. Who has half a bun?! We had ours with home made potato wedges and fried onions. At least the children did, DH and I didn't eat them, we just tasted them!

  1. These sound really good. I've not tried pork and apple burgers. However, we have tried pork and apple sausage. I was surprised at how good they were, but I'm betting the on healthful scale they weren't as good for you as your burgers.


Thank you for your comment - I am always happy to hear from you!
