Apple Pork Burgers

By Jenn Bruer

Beefsteak with potatoe salad- Frikadelle mit Kartoffelsalat

Ingredients
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

Directions

  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.

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