Beef and Portobello Burgers

I found this recipe in my Fresh, Fabulous, FAST Weight Watchers cookbook. This was one of the 20 minute recipes and might I add, one of the best burgers I have ever tasted!!!

WW friends, 1 burger is worth 8 pts.


6 oz portobello mushroom caps
12 oz ground lean beef (7% fat or less)
2 tablespoons dried bread crumbs (pref whole wheat, but same points with white)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tsp canola oil
1/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
2 Tbsp finely chopped fresh basil (dried works as well)
1 garlic clove, minced
4 hamburger buns, split (whole wheat preferred, but same points if get white)
4 thick tomato slices
4 green leaf lettuce leaves


Place mushrooms in food processor; pulse until minced. Transfer mushrooms to large bowl. Add beef, bread crumbs, salt and pepper and mix well. With damp hands, shape mixture into 4 (1/2-inch-thick) patties.

Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add patties and cook until instant-read thermometer inserted into side of each burger registers 160F for medium, 5-6 minutes on each side.

Meanwhile, stir together mayonnaise, basil and garlic in small bowl.

Place burger in buns and top evenly with tomato slices, lettuce leaves and mayonnaise.
