Grilled Turkey Burgers Recipe

Orange marmalade gives a citrus twist to moist burger. Ground turkey offers a nice change from the usual hamburger patty.—Patty Kile, Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania

"We have these burgers about once a month, always great reviews from everyone (even the kids and die hard beef lovers). I substitute out the Swiss for provolone, and husband makes a fantastic aioli sauce to go over them as well, adding another layer of flavor."
