Sweet, tart, and slightly crunchy, these apple burgers might sound weird, but they definitely taste good.

Yield  4-6 burgers
Time  15 minutes

    * 2 tart apples, grated
    * 1 c onion, minced
    * 2 c bread crumbs
    * 1 green pepper, seeded and chopped
    * 1 T fresh ginger, minced
    * 2 c brown or white rice, cooked (leftover is fine)
    * 6 T rolled oats, ground
    * ½ t salt
    * black pepper
    * 1-2 T vegetable oil

Squeeze some of the juice out of the apples, then place in bowl with onions, bread crumbs, green pepper, ginger, rice, 3 T oats, salt, and pepper. Mix well.

Heat the oil in the frying pan, over medium heat.

Shape mixture into patties, adding more bread crumbs if necessary. Coat with remaining 3 T of oats.

Fry in 1 T oil over medium heat until golden brown, 2-3 minutes per side.
