Pork Apple Burgers
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
Combine the first 5 ingredients and shape into 8 balls. Flatten them into patties a little larger than the apple slices. Place an apple slice on 4 of the patties. Top each of the 4 patties with a slice of cheese and then top each with another patty making 4 burgers. Seal the edges of the 4 burgers by pinching the edges of the patties together.
Dust each burger with a little flour. Barbeque on a grill or fry in a skillet with heated olive oil for 8 minutes per side.
