Instructions Checklist
  • To prepare Creamy Apple Slaw: In a small bowl, combine Greek yogurt and cider vinegar. Stir in apple, carrot, red cabbage, and raisins. Cover and chill 2 hours before serving.

  • To prepare Apple-Brat Burgers: In a large bowl, combine egg white, bread crumbs, applesauce, onion, sage, pepper, and nutmeg. Add pork and turkey; mix well. Shape mixture into two 3/4-inch-thick patties. Using your thumb, indent the middle of each patty.

  • For a gas or charcoal grill, grill patties on the greased rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat for 14 to 18 minutes or until done (165 degrees F), turning once halfway through grilling time (see Tip).

  • To serve, place patties on bottom halves of buns. Top with the Creamy Apple Slaw and bun tops.


Tip: The internal color of a burger is not a reliable doneness indicator. A turkey patty cooked to 165 degrees F is safe, regardless of color. To measure the doneness of a patty, insert an instant-read thermometer through the side of the patty to a depth of 2 to 3 inches.
