With these low-calorie, low-fat, low-sodium burgers on the Labor Day menu, health watchers are sure to indulge. They are made with ground turkey and barbecued on the grill. To further enhance the taste of the meat, onion and garlic powders and black and red pepper are added.
An ice cube is placed in the center of each burger to act as a self-baster. It prevents the meat from drying out during cooking.
