Apple 'n' Pork Burgers Recipe

Apple 'n' Pork Burgers Recipe

This pork burger recipe is a favorite of ours. We had a similar burger in Hawaii and once home, I experimented and came up with this tasty version that we actually prefer to the original. I like to serve them with a salad or fresh corn on the cob. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho
