Heat oven to 425° F. Toss the potatoes, 2 tablespoons of the oil, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper on 2 rimmed baking sheets. Roast, tossing once, until golden brown and cooked through, 22 to 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, gently mix together the turkey, scallions, cumin, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper in a medium bowl with your hands until just combined. Form the mixture into four ½-inch-thick patties.

Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the patties until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center of a patty registers 165° F, 5 to 7 minutes per side. Wipe out the skillet; reserve.

Ingredients

  1. Check 2 russet potatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds), cut lengthwise into 1-inch wedges
  2. Check 3 tablespoons olive oil
  3. Check kosher salt and black pepper
  4. Check 1 pound ground turkey (preferably dark meat)
  5. Check 4 scallions, finely chopped
  6. Check 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  7. Check 8 slices white sandwich bread
  8. Check 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  9. Check 4 ounces Cheddar, sliced
  10. Check carrot sticks, cucumber spears, and creamy salad dressing (such as Thousand Island), for serving

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 425° F. Toss the potatoes, 2 tablespoons of the oil, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper on 2 rimmed baking sheets. Roast, tossing once, until golden brown and cooked through, 22 to 25 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, gently mix together the turkey, scallions, cumin, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper in a medium bowl with your hands until just combined. Form the mixture into four ½-inch-thick patties.
  3. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the patties until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center of a patty registers 165° F, 5 to 7 minutes per side. Wipe out the skillet; reserve.
  4. Brush both sides of the bread with the mayonnaise. Sandwich the patties and cheese between the bread. Cook, in 2 batches, covered, in the reserved skillet over medium-low heat until the bread is golden brown and the cheese is melted, 1 to 3 minutes per side.
  5. Serve the patty melts with the oven fries, carrot sticks, and cucumber spears and the salad dressing for dipping.
