  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1½ tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 small red onion, finely sliced
  • 200g red cabbage, finely sliced
  • 2 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • 4 bread rolls, split in half


  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Snip the tops off the sausages and squeeze the meat out into a bowl. Stir through the grated apple and sage, then shape into 4 patties. Place the burgers on a baking sheet and cook for 25-30 mins or until golden and cooked through.

  2. Meanwhile, mix the vinegar and sugar together with some seasoning. Stir to dissolve the sugar before stirring in the onion, cabbage and mustard. Leave to stand and soften while the burgers finish cooking. Place a burger in each roll and top with some pickled cabbage, serving any extra on the side.

Made this and it was very popular with the whole family -

This was super tasty and pretty fast to make. As for the 8 sausages, it was a bit much, probably because I had larger sized sausages. Going with 500g of sausage is good for 4 burgers.
