Cosmic Crisp® Spiced Burgers


  • 2 Cosmic Crisp® apples, peeled and cored
  • 2 pounds ground pork, ground turkey or ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 2½ teaspoons ground coriander 
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. Grate the Cosmic Crisp® apples on the large holes of a box grater onto a plate. Press 2-3 paper towels onto the apple to remove excess moisture. Transfer to a large mixing bowl. 
  2. Add the meat of your choice and the butter. Mix well.
  3. Add the coriander, cumin, cinnamon, salt, pepper, nutmeg and cayenne pepper. Mix until fully combined. 
  4. Form into half-pound patties. 
  5. Heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Grill the burgers 4-5 minutes each side, until the center is no longer pink.
