The Twins have been my tasting panel for a while now and have been keeping me on my toes with baby/toddler friendly recipes. I’ve been introducing them to some meats lately and decided to keep things moist and naturally sweet with these delicious pork and apple burgers. And my new herb to tickle their taste buds is tarragon… one of my personal favorites.
At some point I will have to face teaching my boys to use a spoon, but if they’re anything like my daughter they will be determined to pick up whatever I serve them for some time. So for now I’m keeping things tidy and continue to come up with recipes they will enjoy that introduce new flavors, just like these juicy pork and apple burgers.
Although the twins are getting the hang of chewing (they have eight teeth now!), many meats are still hard work. Minced meat is not only easy to chew but is easy to mix in with other ingredients to make a moist patty.
- 1 lb minced pork
- 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
- 1 sweet apple, grated
- ½ onion, grated
- 1 egg, beaten
- ½ tsp dried tarragon
- pinch of salt
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Mix all the ingredients in a bowl with your hands.
- Shape the mix into patties and place on a lined baking tray.
- Bake for 20 minutes, turning at half time.
