Top Review by Swan Valley Tammi

I made 1-1/2 recipes and didn't bother trying to make these into patties; I just threw it into a greased 9x13 pan, baked for 30 minutes at 400F, and cut it into 8 pieces. This makes it a great WW recipe!

  3. Mix well.
  4. Shape into six patties about 1" thick.
  5. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

  8. To serve, place two patties on a lettuce leaf, top each with a slice of tomato and a dollop of mayonnaise.
