Savory Turkey Burgers with Garlicky Mayonnaise

I found a new website,www.eatbetteramerica.com, that was mentioned on the WW community board. It is great! Definitely a new one I will be going to frequently. I found this recipe on there and decided to give it a try. It was delicious! My husband said that he liked it, but feel that secretly he was kind of disappointed. I believe he thought it would be more like a burger, and was kind of disappointed when it wasn't. In the end he had 1 and half turkey burgers so it couldn't have been too bad! I served with with some homemade oven fries. I added a little garlic and some extra seasonings to it since some of the reviews said it was kind of bland. I loved it and will definitely be make it again!
