If you want to surprise your family with something different than the classic beef burger, then perhaps this combination of ground pork and feta cheese will help you satisfy the hungry mouths in your house. The Worcestershire and hot sauce pack these burgers with deep flavor and aroma, however, if you are not a fan of the hot and spicy, you can substitute the hot sauce with some tomato sauce.

Ingredients

3 pounds Ground Pork
¾ cup crumbled Feta Cheese
¾ cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
¼ cup Worcestershire Sauce
¼ cup Hot Sauce
1 small Onion, chopped
2 tbsp minced Garlic
Salt and Pepper, to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Preheat your grill to medium.

2. In a large bowl, place the onion, ground pork, garlic, feta, cheddar, Worcestershire, and hot sauce. Season the mixture with some salt and pepper, to taste. Mix well with your hands until the mixture is fully incorporated.

3. Shape the mixture into patties. You should have about 10 patties that are 1-inch thick.

4. Place the patties on the preheated grill. Grill for about 15 minutes, turning them over once (about 7 – 8 minutes per side). The internal temperature of the burgers should be at least 74 C or 165 F degrees.

5. Serve with burger buns and favorite toppings and enjoy.

Recipe Notes

If you want to add a smokier flavor to your burgers, please, do not use liquid smoke when making the patties as it will affect the final taste. Instead, add a handful of oak or pecan wood chips to the fire about ten minutes before putting the burgers on the grill.

Packed with ground pork, tomatoes, quark, and a hint of pleasant rosemary flavor, this lasagna will leave every single one of your guests speechless. Serve with a crunchy leafy salad, garlic bread, and white wine for a fully satisfying dinner.

    10 dried Lasagna Sheets
  • pagelines
    5 tbsp grated Parmesan Cheese
Pork Sauce
  • pagelines
    1 tsp Olive Oil
  • pagelines
    1 ½ cups Chicken Stock
  • pagelines
    5 ounces (150 ml) White Wine
  • pagelines
    14 ounces (400 grams) ground lean Pork
  • pagelines
    2 tbsp Tomato Puree
  • pagelines
    14 ounces (400 grams) canned chopped Tomatoes
  • pagelines
    1 tsp dried Rosemary
  • pagelines
    2 Celery Stalks, finely chopped
  • pagelines
    1 Onion, finely chopped
Quark Filling
  • pagelines
    2 tubs (250 g or 9 ounces each) Quark
  • pagelines
    1 cup skimmed Milk
  • pagelines
    Pinch of Nutmeg
  • pagelines
    Salt and Pepper, to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Preheat your oven to 190 C or 375 F degrees. Spray a baking dish (I used a 2 ½ pint oblong one) with some cooking spray, and set aside.

2. Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the pork and cook until browned. Add the onions and celery and cook for about 2 minutes. Stir in the rosemary and pour the white wine over. Bring the mixture to a boil. Cover the pan and let simmer for about 10 minutes.

3. Add chicken stock, canned tomatoes, and tomato puree. Bring the mixture to a boil one more time. Cover again and let simmer for 30 minutes.

4. In a bowl, whisk together the quark, milk, and nutmeg. Season with some salt and pepper.

5. Spoon some of the pork sauce in the bottom of your baking dish, enough to cover it. Cover the bottom with 2 lasagna sheets (you can break them if necessary to cover the dish, but do not overlap). Spread some of the quark mixture over the lasagna sheets, and then top with the pork sauce. Sprinkle with 1 tbsp of parmesan over. Repeat this process 4 more times, finishing the lasagna with parmesan cheese.

6. Place in the oven and bake for about 30 to 35 minutes. Let rest for 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

Tired of the traditional American meatloaf? Why not try this British Haslet instead?Made with ground pork and flavored with fresh sage, this British classic will knock your socks off with its amazing taste. If you don’t like the sage flavor, you can substitute it with your favorite fresh herb instead. I promise you an equally delicious meatloaf.

Ingredients

2 pounds (about 900 grams) ground Pork
8 ounces (220 grams) White Bread, cubed
1 tsp Fresh Sage, chopped
1 medium Onion, chopped
Salt and Pepper, to taste
Milk or Buttermilk, as needed for soaking

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a loaf pan with some cooking spray.

2. Place the bread cubes in a bowl and pour some milk over, enough to cover the bread. Let sit for a couple of minutes, enough to become soft.

3. Once the bread is softened, squeeze out with your hands to get rid of the extra moisture. Transfer the soft bread to the bowl of your food processor.

4. Add onion, sage, and pork to the food processor. Season with some salt and pepper. Pulse until minced. Transfer the mixture to the prepared loaf pan, and press it firmly.

5. Place in the oven and bake for about 1 ½ hours. Let sit for about 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
