Cajun Pork Burgers

I thoroughly enjoy a good burger, especially one which is meaty and full of flavour. I normally make 
beef burgers but I fancied something different and as I have 5 cookbooks dedicated to burgers I decide to make a burger that was slightly different. Pork mince is full of flavour and relatively low in fact so I thought I would make the Cajun pork burgers. The Cajun spice adds a warmth flavour and the mashed sweet potato adds an (obviously) sweet flavour. 




Prep Time: 20 minutes, plus chilling
Cook Time : 35-45 minutes

Ingredients
225g sweet potatoes , cut into chunks
450g pork mince
1 eating apple, peeled, cored and grated
2 tsp Cajun seasoning
450g onions
1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
2 tbsp sunflower oil
8-12 lean back bacon rashers
salt and pepper

Method
Cook the sweet potato in a saucepan of lightly salted boiling water for 15-20 minutes, or until soft when pierced with a fork. Drain well, then mash and reserve.
Place the pork in a bowl, add the mashed potato, apple and Cajun seasoning. Grate one of the onions and add to the pork mixture with the coriander and salt and pepper to taste. Mix together, then shape into four to six equal-sized patties. Cover and leave to chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Slice the remaining onions. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a frying pan. Add the onions and cook over a low heat for 10-12 minutes, stirring until soft. Remove the frying pan from the heat and reserve. Wrap each patty in two bacon rashers. 
Preheat the barbecue. Cook the patties over the to coals, bruising with the remaining oil, for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until thoroughly cooked. Alternatively, cook in a griddle pan or under a hot grill. Serve immediately with the fried onions.
