There I was, staring down the dinner table with nothing prepped. Not a single thing ringing my bell or a craving to be had. Inspiration was no where in sight. Lucky for me, there was a little of this, and a little of that looking for some love in the fridge. And from those scraps these epic Apple-Brat Burger Recipe for two were born. I knew there was a reason those brats were there.
Grab some slaw. Let’s go.
- 1 egg white lightly beaten
- 2 tbs dry bread crumbs
- 2 tbs unsweetened applesauce
- 1 tbs onion minced
- 1/4 teas ground sage
- 1/4 teas ground black pepper
- 1/8 teas freshly grated nutmeg
- 4 oz ground pork
- 4 oz ground turkey
- 2 hamburger buns
- 1/4 cup fat-free Greek yogurt
- 1 teas cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup shredded green apple
- 1/4 cup shredded carrot
- 1/4 cup shredded red cabbage
- 1 tbs raisins
- salt and pepper
Whisk the Greek yogurt with the cider vinegar, green apple, carrot, red cabbage, and raisins. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and chill for 2 hours.
In a large bowl, combine the egg white, bread crumbs, applesauce, onion, sage, pepper, nutmeg, brats, and ground turkey. Mix with your hands to combine. Shape into 2 large patties.
Preheat your grill to medium heat and clean grate.
Grill the patties, 14 to 18 minutes until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F, flipping once, halfway through cook time.
Top with creamy slaw and serve on toasted buns.
