Cooking Time: 16 mins

Ingredients:

    1 lb lean ground pork
    1 egg, beaten
    1 onion, grated
    2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
    1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
    1 Granny Smith apple (or Braeburn or Winesap), peeled, cored and cut into 4 thick rings
    4 slices reduced-fat mozzarella cheese, cut to same size as apple rings
    1 light coating of flour, for coating
    2 Tbsp olive oil

Directions:

    In a large bowl, combine the ground pork, egg, onion, parsley and sauce. With wet hands, shape into 8 patties, 1/2-inch larger than the apple rings. Place a slice of apple on 4 of the patties, followed by the cheese.

    Place remaining patties on top and pinch edges to seal. Roll in flour and barbecue, grill or char-grill in a pan heated with olive oil for 8 minutes on each side or until browned and cooked through.

Variations:

    Serve with beans, salad or on a barbecued wholegrain hamburger bun.
