  • 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


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.


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