Pork Burgers with Maple Syrup Glaze/Sauce

 This functions as a sauce and as a glaze.  This hamburger tastes best with a fruit salsa which compliments the sweetness of the maple syrup..

  • 8 ounces pork sausage
  • 1/2 cup diced green bell pepper
  • 2/3 cup bottled barbecue sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 onion rolls, split
  • 1/2 cup salsa of your choice


Gently mix sausage and green bell pepper in medium bowl. Form into two 1/2-inch-thick patties. (Can be made 8 hours ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)

Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Whisk barbecue sauce, maple syrup, and vinegar in medium bowl to blend well. Reserve 1/3 cup sauce to baste patties.

Grill rolls until lightly toasted. Transfer to 2 plates.

Brush top side of patties with sauce.  Grill 5 minutes, turning once. Brush with sauce when turned. Grill until cooked through, brushing occasionally with sauce, about 5 minutes longer. Place burgers on bottom halves of rolls. Top each burger with salsa of your choice, (see salsa page) and top half of roll.

Serve, passing remaining sauce or salsa separately.

Serves: 2  - easily doubled
