Apple Bacon Cheese Burger with Sautéed Onions & Apple Sauce

Is it the wrong season for burgers, because if it is my cravings have no clue what time of year it is. I’ve been calling this an autumn burger, to begin with I hadn’t really named it, I know it turned out to be a very innovative name, but when I had named it, apple bacon cheese burger just seemed too long to say in passing and there’s apple sauce, do I need any more of a reason? I’ve been talking about making this since last month and being the expert procrastinator even through my excitement of making it I didn’t get round to it for a good three weeks. The entire time I was making this I felt like I was running around like a headless chicken, I’ll just say now it’s not hard or messy or challenging it’s actually a pretty simple recipe, so don’t let this put you off. I’d had a long day, the kitchen was a massive tip, I was balancing things on chairs and stacks of magazines there were things everywhere. Partly because when I started my day the kitchen wasn’t all that tidy to begin with and I got a bit too busy to the point where I stopped tidying up in-between finishing one thing and starting another. I was trying to get dinner made by a certain time so I was running around and ended up with a beetroot red face by the time it was done and shot and I finally got round to eating this. I’m surprised something didn’t end up on the floor but it was definitely worth the headless chicken running. If I didn’t put you off too much happy non-headless chicken burger making!
For the burgers
500g lean ground beef
1 egg
1 tbsp oats
A pinch of salt & pepper
Dried parsley
For the apple sauce
2 cooking apples
1 tbsp water
1 tbsp honey
You will also need
4/8 slices of bacon
Emmental cheese
1 red onion
4 brioche burger buns
First place the minced beef, egg, oats and seasoning in a bowl and mix until combined, don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty, I always find this is the easiest way. Split the mixture into four and shape into burgers and refrigerate for at least half an hour.
While the burgers are chilling peel and slice the apples and place in a saucepan with one tablespoon of water, heat on low with the lid on stirring occasionally. Once the apples have mushed down into a sauce take off the heat and stir in the honey then set aside.
Once the burgers have chilled place under the grill for about 7 minutes then flip and grill for another 7 or until cooked through, add the cheese just before it’s finished cooking to melt. While the burgers are cooking slice and sauté the onions in a frying pan with oil on a medium-high heat until cooked and cook the bacon under a grill or in a frying pan.
Before serving, slice the brioche buns and grill or fry until lightly browned and crispy. Place the burger on the bottom of the bun, add the bacon and cooked onions then top with a generous helping of apple sauce.
