Sweet Apple Burger

For a different and famliar taste of fruit, try my sweet apple burger. My favorite meal is fried apples and hamburger. I decided to incorporate my favorite dish into one easy to handle burger without turning on the hot stove in my house. The flavors worked well together, and was a huge hit in my family.


Swedish Mayo
1/4 cup mayo
1/4 cup grape jelly
1 bottle chilli sauce
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
2 tablespoons Sauvignon Blanc
1/2 cup grated fresh apples
4 teaspoons Chilli sauce
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons curry powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
Vegetable oil, for brushing on the grill rack
4 (1/2-inch-thick) sweet onion slices
4 seeded sandwich rolls, split
1 large tomato


Directions Prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill with a cover, or preheat a gas grill to medium-high. To make the mayo, combine all of the ingredients in food processor and process until mixed and smooth. To make the patties, combine the beef, Sauvignon Blanc, grated apples, chilli sauce, ground cinnamon, ginger, curry powder, salt, and allspice in a large bowl. Handling the meat as little as possible to avoid compacting it, mix well. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions and form the portions into patties to fit the rolls. When the grill is ready, brush the grill rack with vegetable oil. Place the patties on the rack, cover, and cook, turning once, until done to preference, 4 to 5 minutes on each side for medium. While the patties are cooking, place the onions on the grill rack and cook until golden brown and crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes per side. During the last few minutes of cooking, place the rolls, cut side down, on the outer edges of the rack to toast lightly. To assemble the burgers, on each roll bottom, place a patty, an good dollup of the mayo, an onion slice, and a slice of red ripe tomato. Add the roll tops and serve. Makes 4 burgers


Try these burgers with grilled cabbage and a glass of Sutter's Sauvignon Blanc or Sutter's White Zinfandel.
