Cosmic Crisp® Center Cut Apple “Burgers”


  • 1 cup liquid aminos (or soy sauce)
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • Juice from half a lime
  • 2 Cosmic Crisp® apples
  • 4 slices extra sharp white cheddar, like Kerrygold® Dubliner


  1. In a small, shallow baking dish, mix together the liquid aminos, brown sugar, black pepper, garlic powder and lime juice.
  2. Slice the Cosmic Crisp® apples through the center about ½-inch thick. Using a fork, prick the apple slices in several places and place them in the marinade. Let sit in the refrigerator for 2-4 hours.
  3. Heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high. Place the Cosmic Crisp® apple slices on the grill. Grill each side for 3-4 minutes until the apples are caramelized and tender, but not soft. Lay the slices of cheese on top. Cover and let the cheese melt, about 1-2 minutes.
  4. Serve immediately on toasted burger buns.
  5. Try it with Cosmic Crisp® Apple Relish!
