I just recently discovered this recipe and the family is already hooked! These Pork Patties with Apples are an absolute treat… let me just tell you that the patties are made with bacon. Need I say more? Besides, the combination of pork, apples, and sage is a classic that never fails and one of my all-time favourite. The patties freeze well, so I usually make a double batch and freeze the remaining for a later dinner. Serve them with the Sweet Potato Mash I showed you how to make in the previous post and you will have a delightful meal everyone will love!
Pork Patties with Apples
- 500 gms – 1.1 lbs. pork mince
- 2 rindless bacon rashers finely chopped
- 1 small onion grated
- 1 garlic clove finely chopped
- 1 cup breadcrumbs
- 1 egg lightly beaten
- 1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
- 2 tbsp sage leaves chopped
- 50 gms – 3 tbsp butter
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 3 small green apples peeled and sliced
- 1 ½ tbsp maple syrup
- 12 sage leaves extra
- Salt to taste
Cook the bacon, onion and garlic in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until the bacon is browned and the onion is soft. Let it cool down.
Combine the mince, breadcrumbs, egg, Worcestershire Sauce, and chopped sage. Add the bacon mixture and season with salt. Using your hands, mix till well combined.
Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook the patties, in batches, for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until cooked through. Transfer to a warm plate and cover with foil to keep them warm.
Serve the pork patties with sweet potato mash and top with the pan-fried apples.
