2 cups cooked, cubed chicken or turkey

2 cups sliced celery

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp grated onion

2 Tbsp lemon juice

1 cup FF Miracle Whip

1/2 cup 2% shredded american cheese

I'll have to go through my recipe books at home and see what I can come up with that either fit into 30 mins or less or the less than 6 ingredients. I'm sure I have a bunch.

1/2 tsp dried oregano, crumbled

1/4 tsp salt

1/8 tsp freshly ground pepper

3/4 cup shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese

Tuna Burgers - 4 points

 

I took this recipe from Paula Dean and ran it thru the recipe builder. This is one of my favorite things to eat. I either eat them like a burger or just by themselves with some veggies. They are wonderful and very simple. The points value on this recipe includes the 1 pt bun so subtract that if you eat it alone.

 

12 oz StarKist Solid White Albacore Tuna in Spring Water

1/2 cup onion(s)

1/2 cup celery

1/2 cup Progresso Plain Breadcrumbs

1 egg white(s)

1 large egg(s)

1 Tbsp canned pimento

1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

1 1/2 tsp store-bought horseradish

1 Tbsp minced garlic

1/4 tsp black pepper

3 second spray PAM Cooking Spray

5 Wonder Light White Hamburger Bun(s)

 

 

Instructions

 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine the tuna, bread crumbs, and egg, and stir lightly. Add the onion, celery, pimento (if using), lemon juice, horseradish, garlic, and pepper, and mix again. Form the mixture into 4 patties. Heat the cooking spray in a nonstick skillet over medium heat and cook the patties, covered, until golden brown. Carefully flip the patties and cook the other side for 5 minutes. Finish baking in the oven until golden brown.
