    Pork & chilli cheese burgers with sauerkraut

    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes

    Serves: 4


    500g pack lean British pork mince
    1 onion, coarsely grated
    1 apple (such as Royal Gala),peeled and coarsely grated
    1⁄4 whole nutmeg, finely grated
    3 tbsp mayonnaise
    2 tbsp tomato ketchup
    3 pickled cornichons and
    3 small onions from a jar, all finely chopped
    1⁄2 tbsp olive oil
    8 slices Emmi Funky Chili Raclette
    4 wholemeal seeded rolls
    60g pea shoots and baby leaves
    4 heaped tbsp sauerkraut


    1.Put the pork, onion, apple and nutmeg in a mixing bowl. Season and mix with your hands, then shape into 4 even patties, pressing them out to a thickness of 2 1⁄2cm; set aside.

    2. For the sauce, mix together the mayonnaise and ketchup with the cornichons and onions; set aside. Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Brush the burgers all over with the oil and fry for 5-6 minutes on each side, until fully cooked, there is no pink meat and the juices run clear.

    Top each with 2 slices of cheese, cover the pan with a large lid and cook for 2 minutes until the cheese has melted.

    3. Split open the rolls and spread the bases with the sauce. Top with the salad leaves, pork burgers, a good heap of sauerkraut and the bun lids. Serve immediately.
