Place on a baking sheet. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.

2. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet. Add burgers; cook 6 minutes, turning over once halfway through cooking.

3. Meanwhile, if preparing the mayonnaise, mix together mayonnaise, mustard and catsup in a small bowl.

4. Place burgers in buns and serve with mayonnaise if using.

Exchanges: 3-½ starch/bread, 1-½ meat, ⅓ vegetable, 1-¼ fat.

NOTE: Recipe calls for 8 buns, instructions say to make 6 patties; I might not be a rocket scientist, but unless this only serves 6, two people are going to get some real lean burgers!!!--Glen MC-RECIPE@...
