Turkey-Apple Burgers with Dill Mayonnaise

Started Weight Watchers last week and am happy to say that I weighed in today at 3.4 lb lighter ;) Thought I would try out one of the recipes I came across :) These are just as yummy to anyone who isn't on Weight Watchers!!

Turkey-Apple Burgers with Dill Mayonnaise. Serving size 1 patty (6 pts)

1 lb ground turkey
1/2 cup shredded peeled Granny Smith apple
1/2 cup fresh whole wheat bread crumbs
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
1 scallion, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 coarsely ground black pepper

1/4 cup fat-free mayonnaise
3 teaspoons lemon juice
3 teaspoons dill weed
2 teaspoons pickling spice
1/8 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

4 thick slices beefsteak tomato
4 large Boston lettuce leaves

To make burger, combine all burger ingredients in medium bowl. With damp hands, shape mixture into 4 (1/2 inch thick) patties. Place in a casserole pan. Bake at 400F for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, to make mayonnaise, stir together all mayo ingredients in small bowl.

Divide tomato slices and lettuce leaves among 4 serving plate. Top each with 1 burger. Spoon mayonnaise evenly over burgers.

(Healthy extra: For an additional 3 PointsPlus value, serve each burger in a split and toasted light English Muffin)
