Pork, Ginger and Apricot Burgers, in Toasted Pita’s with Tzatziki and Feta Cheese Salad

This recipe makes 6 quite small burgers, perfect with accompaniments or for lunch for 6 people. However if have a bigger appetite then this would be a substantial meal for 3.

  1. To make the burger, heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the onions until soft. Add the chilli and garlic and fry off for 3 minutes. Mix together all the ingredients for the burgers and divide the mixture into 6. Shape into balls and then flatten into burger shapes. Chill in the fridge for half an hour to firm up.
  2. In the meantime make the tzatziki by simply mixing the ingredients together
  3. Pre-heat the oven to 180’C
  4. Bake the burgers for half an hour and then heat a griddle pan and fry for a minute or so on each side to crisp up the edges
  5. Cut the toasted pitas in half and fill with the salad, feta cheese, tzatziki and ofcorse the burgers. You will have plenty of extra salad and dip so make sure you fill your plates with what is left over.
