Pork & Cider Apple Burgers
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
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!
