ingredients

directions

  • Prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill with a cover, or preheat a gas grill to medium-high.
  • To make the sauce: heat the olive oil in a saucepan on the grill.
  • Add in the onion, garlic, bell pepper, and jalapeno peppers; stir/saute 5 minutes or until softened.
  • Add in the molasses, rum, and lime zest; cook, stirring, about 5 minutes or until the liquid is nearly all cooked away.
  • Stir in the tomato, bitters, and salt; move the saucepan to the edge of the grill rack to keep warm.
  • To make the patties: combine the turkey, sausage, salt, pepper, cloves, curry powder, and lime juice in a large bowl.
  • Handling the meat as little as possible to avoid compacting it, mix well.
  • Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions; form the portions into patties to fit the rolls.
  • When the grill is ready, brush the grill rack with vegetable oil.
  • Place the patties on the rack; cover and cook, turning once, just until the juices run clear when the patties are pierced in the center (about 4 minutes on each side).
  • During the last few minutes of cooking, place the rolls, cut side down on the outer edges of the rack to toast lightly.
  • To assemble: on each bottom roll, place a patty and top with an equal portion of the sauce; add the roll tops and serve.

    One of the best best burgers I've ever made! Made with a mixed salad with persian cucumbers, pecans, tangerines. The only thing that went wrong for me was my sauce didn't reduce. It stayed a bit watery. I found later about 1/2 the molasses was still in the measuring cup, so I would make sure to scrape all that out next time to make sure the sauce congeals. Highly recommend!!
