Are you ready for a delicious burger that is full of flavor without breaking the Weight Watchers points bank? I have just the thing with this must-have Italian turkey burger recipe which fits perfectly for those that are looking for more Weight Watchers Turkey Recipes
This Italian turkey burger comes in at 7 points per burger, but if you wrap in lettuce instead of a bun you can enjoy these for only 3 points. Remove the cheese and they are only 1 point!!
I love that the points are flexible based on how you build your Italian turkey burger.
That’s one of the great things about the Weight Watchers program is that it is flexible to your style of eating. Have a lot of extra points and you can have the burger with the bun.
Falling a bit short on points for the day? You can still enjoy a great burger for fewer points.
