You guys may have already tried this but it is new to me. I was at the store and they had ground Pork on sale. I had never bought ground pork but did, to try it. When I got home I said to myself, Self what are you going to do with that. I could not think of anything but meatloaf so I decide on a burger. I made two paties in one I made a good indention in it and filled with shredded Pepper Jack cheese and then put the other patty on top pinching the edges together to hold the cheese in, then fried it. I had some Kaiser buns so I put some butter on that and toasted it in the same skillet after emptying the greese. I only put mustard on the toasted bun and I am telling you that was the best burger I ever had. I may never buy ground beef again. This was so moist it was unreal. Yummmmmmm I am making myself hungrey. I am going to put tomatoe on the next one, really can't imagine onion it tho.

Try pineapple and garlic.....make patties and chicken fry, with garlic salt and paprika and use the oil for gravy, yum. make meat balls to go with stir fry veggies and rice...

ouuuuuuuuu, that sounds so good. I will try them you can be sure. I could not get over how much more moist the burger was. I had used ground pork with ground beef for meatloaf but that is all. I am going to be buying a lot of ground pork.
Thanks for the suggestion.

Helen ~ we have been doing ground pork burgers for a couple of years now. We like it so much better. When I started buying it ~ it was $1.29 a pound. But I think the last time I bought it ~ it was $1.69 a pound!!!! Probably more people buying it ~so they raise the price.

I am so happy I tried it. The only thing I ever used it for was to mix with ground beef for meatloaf. I just could not believe how moist the burger was. I am going to try the Chicken Fry and I will be looking for other recipe also, but since I live alone I will probably mostly make burgers.
I have started making pot meals now and that way I can freeze half and have food for several days already fixed.

Helen we grill them on the grill just like we grill our hamburgers. It is a nice change once in awhile from hamburgers. Judy Day

Thanks for the suggestion Judy, I just don't have a grill. I am 79 years old and I would probably set the entire place on fire, however I am going to pass this info along to my son who does have a grill and most of what they eat is off the grill. I sure would like to have one but with me being just one person it doesn't seem like a good idea. Every time I go to Lowes I can't help but look at the small ones.

I made some pork burgers tonight. Put some garlic salt and black pepper in the mix and they turned out really good. I put horseradish mustard on my roll and hubby put catsup on his. Nice to have something different for a change.

I discovered ground pork when they remodeled our Target and now carry groceries. My husband quit eating red meat about 5 years ago and I have become such a lazy cook that when I do pan fry chicken or pork chops it smells up the whole house (to us). We no longer even eat sausage or bacon BUT we have ground pork tacos at least once a week. Going to try using it for spagetti or lasagne. I have tried ground turkey (sometimes mixed with ground pork and also ground chicken and hubby ate it but was not all that thrilled so that caused me to cook even less.
Use black pepper, garlic powder and seasoned salt to cook my ground pork (or any other meat, other than beef). I use fresh onions or green onions every once in awhile but it gives me gas/heartburn.
With the tacos, I just heat up corn tortillas in a fry pan and put shredded cheese and chopped tomatoes with the meat. I don't care for taco sauce and never buy salsa because it goes to waste with just me eating it. Usually have to put a little butter in the pan when cooking the meat as the kind they have a Target hardly has any fat.

Hmmmm good suggestions all of them. Thanks. I don't know why I never tried ground pork before, I guess because I didn't know what to do with it other than adding to beef for meat loaf, but it is so moist made me not want a ground beef patty because they are so dense and dry. Maybe it would be alright if I mixed pork and beef for the patty.

I prefry the pork and freeze it ... good for gravy over biscuits or spuds, add to eggs, rice or make bar b que sandwiches.....same with meat balls... precook and freeze great to have around for company to add to spagetti or sandwiches.... a breakfast favorite here is scotch eggs,,, hard boil some eggs and then cover them with sausage meat, roll in bread crums and bake untill brown..
