These all American classics get an elegant twist in this Mediterranean burger recipe. Sweet and tangy dried apricots give these pork burgers a fresh and zesty twist while the nutty, buttery pine nuts enhance the flavour profile.


Sweet potato

2 large, cut into wedges

Cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Uncooked 96% lean ground pork

4½ oz

Dried apricot halves

  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
