Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Health Twist
The fat-free mayo in this recipe provides moisture and tenderness without the 11 grams of fat per serving of regular mayonnaise. If you want to reduce the fat even further, use 1/4 cup fat-free egg product instead of the egg.
Success
Use a fork or small spatula to turn the patties when coating them with the egg mixture and bread crumbs.
