Pork Burgers

  • Author: Meagan


This was borrowed from the Food Network magazine…and we will make them again.  I promised Brock that I would make a note of his ‘topping’ idea – apples slices marinated in bourbon and then grilled – but we all thought that grilled pineapple would also be brilliant.  We enjoyed ours with the recipe’s suggestion of coleslaw, and I made this one, Coleslaw (Creamy) – enjoy!



2 lbs. ground pork – I actually found some that was labelled ‘lean’

1012 slices of bacon – cooked until crisp and crumbled

2 T. fresh sage – I used about 12 small sage leaves, chopped

6 + cloves of garlic

1 t. freshly ground pepper

burgers trimmings – coleslaw is a favorite for these!


To really simplify things, use a mini-chopper or food processor to finely chop the bacon, sage and garlic together – then add it all to a large bowl with the pork and pepper and mix it well.  It will be necessary to use your hands.  Shape the meat mixture into 8 similar-sized balls – Brock always weighs them – and then shape them carefully into even sized patties.

Grill on medium-high heat for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until an internal temperature of 155-160 is reached (Brock has a fancy thermometer).  Allow the burgers to rest for a couple of minutes and then dig in with your favorite toppings.
