Pork, Sage and Apple Burgers
- 2 pounds lean ground pork
- 1 medium tart apple
- 1 medium red onion
- 6 Tablespoons plain bread crumbs
- 1 large bunch fresh sage
- salt and pepper
Put the pork into a large bowl – it is easier to work with if it is not too cold from the fridge. Grate the apple and the onion together (this can be done in the food processor). Add to the pork in the bowl. Add the breadcrumbs to the mixture and work together with clean hands until everything is well blended.
Finely chop the sage and add to the mixture with a pinch of salt and a grind of pepper, and continue working until completely mixed.
Divide the mixture into eight equal portions and form into patties. Refrigerate until ready to use, or wrap each tightly and freeze for up to 3 months.
To cook, brown on both sides in a skillet. Transfer to a 375 degree oven and cook until done through, about 20 minutes.
