TURKEY BURGERS WITH BASIL-GARLIC MAYONNAISE

1 lb lean ground turkey (read label-no ground fat!)
6 tbsp chopped fresh basil, divided
4 tbsp finely chopped sweet onion
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
4 tbsp light mayonnaise
2 small or 1 large garlic cloves, minced
4 whole-grain hamburger buns, lightly toasted
4 red lettuce leaves
4 large tomato slices
red onion slices

Gently combine the turkey, 3 tablespoons of the basil, sweet onion, salt and pepper in a medium bowl until blended. Shape into 4 equal patties.

Heat a medium nonstick pan or grill, that has been lightly sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, over medium heat until hot. Cook the patties around 10-12 minutes until cooked through. Patties should no longer be pink in the center - poultry should be cooked thoroughly.

While patties cook, combine the mayonnaise, garlic, and remaining 3 tablespoons of basil together in a small bowl.

To assemble, place patties on bottoms of buns, top with the mayonnaise mixture, red onion slices, lettuce and tomato.
