I'm always looking for fresh new ways to make burgers. We love to grill and have several varieties of apple trees, so this recipe was a natural! Extra apple slaw makes an instant side dish. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho

Ingredients

  • 1/2 medium head cabbage, finely shredded
  • 2 crisp unpeeled medium apples, shredded
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and grated
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced
  • 1/4 cup fat-free mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lime peel
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • BURGERS:
  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 hamburger buns, split

Directions

Combine first five ingredients; remove 1/4 cup cabbage mixture and reserve. Add mayonnaise, lime peel, lime juice, pepper and salt to remaining cabbage mixture, tossing well to coat. Refrigerate, covered, until burgers are grilled.
For burgers, gently combine beef and reserved cabbage mixture. Mix lightly but thoroughly; shape into four patties. Season with salt and pepper.
Grill burgers, covered, on a greased grill rack over medium-high direct heat 5-7 minutes on each side until a thermometer reads 160°. Grill buns just until toasted, about 1 minute. To serve, place a burger and 1/4 cup apple slaw on each bun bottom; replace tops. Serve with remaining slaw. Yield: 4 servings.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • You can make quick work of shredding the cabbage by simply grabbing your food processor.
  • Substitute ground turkey or chicken for the beef, but keep an eye on these meats when grilling because they can overcook faster than you can blink an eye.

    "the slaw was very dry and I had to add Sour cream, white wine vinegar, dijon mustard, double the lime juice and sugar to get it to taste like something....after these additions it was well received as a slaw topping."

    "The apple slaw is a fun change of pace and the burgers are very moist! These were great with brioche buns we found at the grocery store."
