Makes: 4-5 burgers
Cooking time: About 15 minutes
450g (1lb) Lean pork mince
5mlsp (1tsp) Oil
1 Onion, finely chopped
15mlsp (1tbsp) Apple sauce
1 Coxes type apple, cored and sliced into 5
50g (2oz) Hard Cheddar type cheese, cubed
Heat oil in a small pan and cook onion until soft and starting to brown. Put to one side and allow to cool slightly.
In a bowl place the pork mince, apple sauce and onion, and mix together.
Take a slice of apple and mould the mince around the slice, leaving the top of the apple exposed – mixture should make sufficient for 5 burgers. Place on a sheet of foil, cover and leave in the fridge for about 30 minutes to cool and set.
Meanwhile heat the BBQ – Make sure the coals are hot and ‘grey’ before you start cooking. Alternatively if it starts to rain pre-heat the grill!
Place the burgers (on the foil) on the grill grid – make some holes in the foil to allow juices to run away.
Cook for 15 minutes, carefully turning half way during the cooking time. If the outside of the meat starts to catch, cover with foil and adjust the grid height to move away from the heat to slow down the cooking.
Serve with crusty, chunky bread slices, salad leaves and BBQ sauce.
