These are delicious! This recipe can be made ahead, doubled and frozen. Need a quick dinner idea? Defrost in microwave and grill them up.

2 eggs
1 1/3 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup green pepper, diced
4 green onions, diced
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 lbs. ground turkey

On Hand:
1/4 cup orange marmalade
10 hamburger buns, split
10 Swiss cheese, slices
10 red onion, slices
10 tomato, slices
1 cup lettuce, shredded

Assembly Directions:
Combine the first seven ingredients. Crumble over ground turkey and mix well. Shape into 1/4 pound patties. Layer the patties onto wax paper. Divide into airtight plastic freezer containers; date and label with serving directions; then freeze.

Serving Directions:
Thaw. Prepare grill. Grill the patties, uncovered, over medium heat for 8-10 minutes; turn and brush with the marmalade. Grill 8-10 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 170°.
