Usually, when I think of burgers, my mind goes to beef. Not this time. These juicy patties are the perfect combination of pork brats, turkey, and apple to sink your teeth into.

Apple-Brat Burgers, yeah, they're that good. If you haven't tried slaw on a burger yet, you're missing out.

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 nowhere 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, this 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.

This apple coleslaw on top of a turkey/pork bun is the best thing you've tried all day!

  1. Dang it all I just used up all my pork yesterday! Otherwise I’d have everything but the slaw. Next time… these look delicious. I love applesauce in my burgers.

  2. Why is it when I’m in the same position as you we end up having cereal for dinner and you end up with that wonderfulness?
