Apple and Pineapple Burgers

These burgers are easy to make and tasty. I liked them very much and instead of serving on buns, I served on a whole wheat english muffin. I topped mine with provolone cheese but you can top with whatever you like. The sweet fruit with the salty soy sauce is a great mixture. Grill till firm, as the pork can get soft if not cooked long enough.


1/2 cup shredded peeled apple
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup drained unsweetened crushed pineapple
4 tablespoons dry bread crumbs
1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 pound ground pork
4 hamburger buns, split
Lettuce leaves, sliced cheese, ketchup, optional


  • In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Crumble pork over mixture and mix well. Shape into patties.
  • Grill, covered, over medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160°. Serve on buns with toppings.

Servings: 4 servings, 4 oz each.
