- Prep time: 25 minutes
- Calories: 880
- 1 of Brown Onion
- 1 of Green Apple
- 450 g of Royal Blue Potatoes
- 250 g of Pork Mince
- 2 of Egmont Sliced Cheese
- 1 2 Pack of Hamburger Buns
- 1 Tsp of Cumin
- 1 75g Pack of Baby Spinach
- 3 Tbsp of Whole Grain Mayonnaise
Prepare Ingredients:Preheat oven to 200°C. Peel onion and thinly slice. Halve apple, remove and discard core, then thinly slice. Cut the potato into 1 cm wedges.
Roast Potatoes:Drizzle potatoes with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Place potato wedges on a lined baking tray and roast in oven for 25 minutes, or until golden and cooked through.
Make & Cook Burgers:Pat pork dry with paper towel. In a medium bowl, combine pork, cumin, salt, and pepper. Using your hands, mix well, then form into 2 equal patties (about the size of the buns). Create a shallow dimple in the centre of each. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add patties and sear until browned on bottom, 6-7 minutes.
Add Cheese:Flip patties, top with cheese (see tip), then continue cooking until cooked through, 5 more minutes. Remove patties from pan, cover loosely with foil, and set aside to rest.
Cook Apple:Add a little more oil (or water) to the pan. Add sliced onions over medium-high heat and cook until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add apple and cook until soft, about 2 minutes more. Add 1⁄4 cup of water and cook until reduced by half, about 1 minute. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed.
You Plate It:With 2 minutes remaining before the potatoes are cooked, add buns cut-side upin the oven. Layer baby spinach on each burger bun bottom, top with burger patty and onion/apple mix. Spread bun top with whole grain mayo, and top. Serve wedges alongside burgers. Enjoy!
