Apple Pork Burgers

By Jenn Bruer

Beefsteak with potatoe salad- Frikadelle mit Kartoffelsalat

1.5 lbs ground pork
1 onion, minced
1 egg
1/2 cup apple, grated
1/4 cup celery, minced
1/2 cup sweet potato, grated
1/4 cup cranberries, finely chopped (I place mine in the food processor and pulse to tiny pieces)
1 tsp dried sage
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp each salt and pepper


  1. Place all ingredients in a mixer (or mix by hand) until well combined
  2. Shape the mixture into 1 inch thick patties (this should make about six 1-inch patties)
  3. Grill for 5 minutes on either side or until the meat is cooked
    • If it’s too cold out to grill, these taste great in the oven too! Put them in at 375 for about 20 minutes.

I have also made these burgers in the oven and wrapped them in bacon – they were Ahhh-mazing 🙂 Enjoy!

    Did you try this? I’m not sure my family would like this. I’ve not had success with them liking pork with apples.

    I made this chicken salad last night with my coconut oil (accidentally used virgin – makes for some weird mayo taste.. Grrr…) and Mike loved it. I was really surprised b/c the flavors didn’t blend quite as I had hoped. Still there weren’t leftovers so I don’t have lunch. I’m going to make that shrimp salad for me I think. Claire wants pizza for dinner . I don’t think I do. Well talk with you tonight.

    Thanks for the wasabi powder. Hope it wasn’t too expensive.. $33 per pound is quite spendy. You can see why I didn’t want to invest in a huge amount only to have it get old from disuse.

    Love S

    P. S. I’m taking the day off tomorrow
