I have made this recipe twice now and I think it is my favorite burger recipe (plus I always have the ingredients on hand!). Tonight I even made it with lean pork instead (ground pork tends to be a little cheaper) and it was still just as yummy! And the best part is…they’re from Weight Watchers New Complete Cookbook – can we say, YES PLEASE! My secret sister gave me this cookbook and I’m really excited about trying some of these recipes.
1lb lean ground meat (pork or beef)
1/2 cup of finely chopped scallions (although I just used a regular onion)
1/4 fat-free egg substitute (again, I used an actual egg, lol)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp salt (I find these very salty, however, and plan on leaving this out next time)
1/4 tsp black pepper
For purposes of the point value I will add the remaining although these are totally optional
4 whole wheat buns
4 slices sweet onion (such as Vidalia)
4 thick tomato slices
4 lettuce leaves
1/4 cup ketchup
Mix together beef, scallions, egg substitute, W sauce, dry mustard, salt, and pepper in a large bowl until just combined. With damp hands, shape mixture into 4 (1/2inch-thick) patties (and believe me you won’t get more than that out of it so double the recipe if you want more). Serve with above ingredients and this comes to a total point value of: 8 =) 293 calories (in case anyone was wondering)…lol.
