Turkey Burgers w/Cranberry Glaze in the George Foreman Grill

Nonstick cooking spray
1 pound lean ground turkey
1 egg white
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 clove garlic, peeled, minced
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup canned jellied cranberry sauce
1 teaspoon lemon juice
4 whole wheat hamburger buns, split
4 romaine lettuce leaves, washed, patted dry
1/4 cup walnuts, finely chopped

Lightly spray the grill with the cooking spray and preheat it for 5 minutes.

In a large bowl, combine the turkey, egg white, Worcestershire sauce, garlic and black pepper. Shape the mixture into 4 burgers; set aside.

In a small saucepan combine the cranberry sauce and lemon juice and heat the mixture until it is smooth.

Place the turkey burgers on the grill and smooth 1 tablespoon of the glaze over each. Close the grill lid. Grill for 4 minutes. Open the grill and spoon sauce over each patty again. Grill 3 to 4 minutes.

To serve, place the buns on individual plates. Put one lettuce leaf on one half of the bun, place the turkey burger over that, spoon additional sauce over the patty and sprinkle the chopped walnuts over all.
