Apple Dijon Burgers
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 3
  • 1 lb grass-fed ground beef
  • ½ cup shredded apple
  • ⅓ cup minced red onion
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 egg
  1. Place all the above ingredients except the egg in a mixing bowl and mix well.
  2. Use your hand to form 3 even size burgers.
  3. Have your grill on medium heat (350-400 degrees fahrenheit) and grill for approximately 5-6 minutes per side or until done to your liking.
  4. Once you place your burgers on the grill, fry your egg in bacon fat on the stove and set aside.
  5. You can now plate your burgers how you see fit. I used romaine lettuce as a base, added the burger, grilled onions, and topped with the fried egg.
  6. Enjoy

  1. I am so sorry, but these did not turn out at all. From the start, they crumbled on the grill. They did not hold together, which makes sense since there is no binder. So, I added eggs to create a binder. This worked better. And then I tasted them… Not good. These had the weirdest after taste. Now, you should know, we are VERY adventurous eaters. This was not good. I am very surprised at all the positive reviews.

  2. Wow!!! I love this! I made this about three times for my family. The first time I made them into burgers. Delicious!!! Then the second and third time I made it into a meatloaf since to me it tasted very similar to a meatloaf. Amazing!!! This recipe is definitely a keeper. Thanks!!!

  3. Made these Friday for the family. WoW! They were FANTASTIC! Only thing I did was sub Stadium for Dijon as I had non in the fridge. Thanks for the GREAT recipes! It was the first from your site I tried but not the last!

  4. Just made these burgers, and I think this is my favorite burger recipe EVER! I tweaked it a little….
    Added some chopped up bacon (raw) to the meat mixture, used a mix of horseradish mustard with the dijon. SOOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOD! Thanks!

  5. This was DELICIOUS! Thanks for posting it!

    Cassandra, we have a metal container that has a built-in strainer at the top. It catches most of the bits as it drains through. We keep ours in the fridge.

  6. Thanks for the explanation. I'm sure our parents and grandparents ate a lot of drippings in their younger days but with the low-fat "revolution" such info as the proper way to store reserved fat have been long lost, lol.

  7. Dang it, now I've got a case of midnight munchies! This looks really good and can't wait to try this out on my next day off. Also, I just pour my bacon grease in a glass jar and keep it in the fridge although I'm fine with it setting out but my housemates don't like it sitting on the counter.

  8. That looks so delicious! I am new to your site and I just wanted to tell you that you gave me new inspiration this past week while I was making our family's weekly menu. :) Thank you so much!

  9. Patty it was so yummy. Cassandra, I personally do not strain it though some people do and I store mine in a glass jar at room temperature and I have not died yet so I think its safe. You can also refrigerate it or freeze it. When I get sick ill start refrigerating it lol

  10. Looks wonderful! I love the combo of apple with meat but I have not tried it with beef, just pork and chicken.

    I have never saved bacon fat (nor did I ever keep bacon in my house!) in my life until I started eating primal/paleo…do you strain it before storage? Also, do you have any storage tips? I just have been pouring it out of the pan and into a container that I keep in the freezer. I don't know if room temperature storage is safe. Thanks for an explanation!
