Pork & Cider Apple Burgers Recipe

Ingredients

Serves 4

Burger

  • 500g minced pork form your local butchers

  • ¼ jar of The Cherry Tree Sweet Cider Chutney

  • 5g pink Himalayan salt

  • 5g rainbow pepper

  • 3 slices of unsmoked streaky bacon – cut into small bits

  • ⅔ cooking apple – diced very small

Bun and toppings

  • 4 brioche buns

  • 4 slices of cooking apple

  • 4 slices of cheese - Applewood cheese

  • 4 lettuce leaves – cut to the size of your buns

  • 4 slices of large tomato or 16 slices of baby tomatoes

Method

  • Cut up apple, bacon and put into mincing bowl with your mince – mix up and then add your chutney and salt and pepper.

  • Weigh into 180g balls and hand mould into burger/patty shapes – place them onto a greased oven tray.

  • Put into oven at 180ºC for 30 minutes, while this is cooking use you time wisely and cut and butter your buns, slice your tomatoes and cheese – If you compete this in good time have an impromptu kitchen boogie to your favourite tune (mine at the moment is Meet Me at the Dance by September 87).

  • Take the burgers out of the oven, flip them and then top with the apple, then top with the cheese and put into oven at a further 5-10mins depending on how much you like your cheese melted.

  • Take out of the oven and stack your buns! Finish off with a generous dollop of Sweet Cider Chutney!

  • This is the most important step – Put them in your mouth and enjoy!
