STEP 1: 
Saute
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet set over medium-high heat. Add apples, onion, garlic and ginger. Cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes or until softened. Add rosemary, cinnamon, allspice, salt, pepper and cloves. Cook for 3 minutes or until fragrant. Add brown sugar, water, vinegar and raisins; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes or until thick and most of the liquid has evaporated. Stir in grainy mustard. Cool to room temperature.

STEP 3: 
Serve
To assemble burgers, layer mixed greens, bacon, burger and 1/4 cup apple chutney on each bun.
TIP Show/Hide
If you like a sharper cheese, use a 5-year old aged Cheddar.

Add 1 tablespoon of brandy when adding the brown sugar to the chutney for an even richer flavor.

Try garnishing the burger with baby kale instead of mixed greens.
