"I saw these being made at a market a few years back and have since found the recipe at Aussie Apples. I will be trying these for the family over summer. You can freeze the patties by placing the patties between sheets of plastic wrap in an airtight container & freeze for up to 1 month. This recipe makes 6-8 patties depending on the size you make them"

This is a healthy burger with the low meat high veggie content. I love apple with pork. I cut the recipe in half and got 3 large patties. Used wonderful yellow tomatoes - they are so sweet. For an additional topping I used slices of fresh apple. I liked the burger but felt it needed something to spark it up like perhaps a bit of chili or cajun spice. I pan fried some onions to have on the side. I will make it again adding some spice.
