Mo Burger from Crosby’s Molasses

Mo Burger 6

There are two kinds of burger lovers, those who like ground beef formed into a patty with just a little seasoning and those who like it mixed up with eggs, fillers, sauces and a myriad of other ingredients. I am definitely in the beef with a few seasonings camp.

So, when I was cruising through the Crosby’s Molasses site and saw Mo burgers that are made with molasses, onions and salsa, why would I make it?

There are a couple of reasons. First, if you don’t try different things, you might miss a great new dish. Second, while there were additions to the beef, there weren’t that many. So, I went for it.

The recipe is at this link:

I started by sauteing the onion and salsa.

I put the onions in a bowl and stirred in the molasses, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. I added the beef and mixed lightly.

I formed the beef into four patties. I like to depress the centre of my patties as I find it cuts back on shrinkage when the burgers are cooked.

I preheated my Weber Genesis Grill to medium high and put the burgers on.

I cooked them for about 4 minutes a side and made sure the internal temperature was over 165 F.

Here are the finished burgers.

The Verdict

These were very different from my regular less seasoned burgers. The molasses definitely add a sweetness but it is a rich deep sweetness which I like about molasses. There was a touch of spicy notes from the salsa and Worcestershire but not enough to offend even picky kids.

I still prefer my plain burgers but these are very good for those who like their burgers sauced up. That being said I did enjoy them. They are good enough I will make them from time to time just for a switch up from the regular burgers.

    1. I know what you mean. As I was eating these I thought to myself they weren’t burgers. They were more like a hot meatloaf sandwich. They tasted good but a burger should be mostly a beef flavour.
