Pork and sage burgers

These pork burgers were a hit at my recent barbecue and enough people asked for the recipe that I thought I’d share it here – they are great on the barbecue or wrapped with streaky bacon, grilled and served with fries. Gothman and I may even have had them for breakfast with fried eggs one sunny morning.

  • 500g lean minced pork
  • 1 small red onion, chopped finely
  • 2 spring onions, chopped finely
  • 1 chilli, chopped
  • 1 tbsp dried sage
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed

Optional additions

  • 2 tbsp breadcrumbs
  • 1 small or medium egg

Method: Combine all the ingredients in a bowl until evenly mixed. Refrigerate for an hour, then form into small patties and return to the fridge until you are ready to cook them. Grill at a high heat for five minutes on each side and serve with homemade burger rolls, red onion relish and hot chilli sauce if you’re brave enough.
