  1. Put the mince, carrot, apple, breadcrumbs, Worcestershire sauce and egg in a bowl and mix well. Divide the mixture in half – wrap half in clingfi lm and chill (see Make it go further). With slightly damp hands, shape the remaining half into 4 burger patties and set aside.
  2. Preheat the grill to medium. Cook the burgers for 5-6 mins each side until golden and cooked through. Top with the cheese and grill for 1 min more until melted and bubbling.
  3. Place each burger in a bun with tomato, lettuce and 1 tsp burger sauce to serve.

Make it go further: This recipe makes double the pork mixture. It will keep in the fridge for up to 2 days, or can be frozen.
