delicious. tips

  1. Adding apple to burgers and meatballs adds a great natural sweetness, which cuts down on artificial sugars.

    Sweet potatoes are higher in fibre and have a denser concentration of vitamin C than ‘regular’ potatoes.

  2. Freeze the uncooked pork burgers for up to 3 months in a plastic container. Defrost thoroughly before cooking.
