  1. Step 1

    To make the apple slaw, in a medium bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar and honey. Add apple, onion and parsley and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Step 2

    To make the Dijonnaise, in a small bowl, whisk mayonnaise and mustard.
  3. Step 3

    Preheat grill on high. Shape the mince into 4 equal-sized balls. Heat a large heavy frying pan over high heat. Add 2 mince balls to pan and, using a sturdy spatula, immediately press on mince balls to flatten into about 1cm-thick patties. Season with salt and pepper and cook for 2 mins or until base is browned and crisp. Turn patties, season and top with cheese. Cook for 2 mins or until browned and cooked through. Transfer patties to a large baking tray. Repeat to cook remaining mince balls.
  4. Step 4

    Place the patties under grill for 30 seconds or until the cheese melts. Spread bun bases with Dijonnaise. Place patties on bun bases. Top with rocket and apple slaw. Cover with bun tops and serve.
