Serves 4.


  • 1 Granny Smith apple
  • 500g pork mince
  • 1 tbsp finely shredded sage
  • 1 cup (100g) fresh breadcrumbs (made from day-old bread)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup plain full cream yoghurt
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped


  1. Peel, core and coarsely grate 1 apple. Place in a large bowl with the mince, sage, breadcrumbs and egg. Season well. Use your hands to mix until well combined. Divide the mixture into 12 even portions. Shape each portion into a rissole and place on a plate. Place in the fridge for 10 minutes to chill.
