  1. Heat the grill to medium-hot. Boil the potatoes for 20-25 mins or until tender.

  2. Meanwhile, use your hands to squeeze any excess juice from the apple, then place in a bowl with the mince, onions, breadcrumbs, mustard, parsley and some seasoning. Use your hands to mix the ingredients until well combined. Add half the egg (reserve the rest for Chinese leaf pork wraps, see 'goes well with') and mix again. With clean, wet hands (to prevent sticking), shape the mixture into 2 burgers. Grill the burgers on a foil-lined tray for 18-20 mins, turning once until golden.

  3. Drain the potatoes, toss in the tzatziki straight away and serve with the burgers and rocket, if you like.

We found them bland also. I used a finely chopped red onion in place of the spring onions as we had none. They definitely need something else. Perhaps Parmesan or chilli? We ate them with chutney as they needed a kick.

Made this today (Tuesday) with leftover pork from Sunday's joint. Used the whole egg as the pork had already been cooked and therefore a little dry, with no spring onion I substituted a banana shallot and added half dozen halved green olives to bulk out the ingredients. When grilled they were still a little dry but nevertheless very tasty. A good way of using up leftovers but make sure the result is a little more moist than mine were. I got four good helpings from the ingredients.

Really nice, I put 2 apples in it which provided extra sweetness and rosemary instead of parsley..delicious and very healthy!

I have made this twice so far and both times have turned out delicious, i didn't think they lacked flavour. Made a couple of changes due to lack of ingredients in cupboard, used 1tsp -1 1/2 tsp mustard powder instead of whole grain mustard, half onion very finely chopped instead of spring onions, fresh breadcrumbs instead of dried, and dried parsley instead of fresh! Ive have these chopped up over a big plate of salad and have also had with boiled potatoes in chicken stock and garlic broccoli.

I made these last night and they were very nice, but I felt that they could have benefited from some extra seasoning.....either some sage or perhaps a bit of chilli to pep them up a bit. We have an Aga so no grill, but I did them in a griddle pan and they stayed wonderfully moist. The potatoes were lovely, but needed salt to perk up the tzatziki (I made my own).

These are ok. Not bowled over. Think they need sth extra like a tbsp of pickle, gherkin, caramelised onions or similar.

This was delicious! I cooked it in the oven instead of grilling it.
