Instructions

  1. In small cup, place sun-dried tomatoes and cover with boiling water. Let sit 10 minutes. Drain and finely chop.
  2. Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  3. In medium bowl, combine turkey, sun-dried tomatoes, basil, 1⁄8 tsp salt, and black pepper. Mix with your hands or rubber spatula just until combined. Form into 1⁄2-inch-thick patty and set aside.
  4. In small bowl, combine potato wedges, 1⁄2 tsp oil, and remaining 1⁄8 tsp salt. Onto prepared baking sheet, spread wedges in single layer. Place in oven and roast 6 minutes. Push potatoes to 1 side and add turkey patty to baking sheet; roast 6 minutes longer. Turn potatoes and turkey patty over and roast until potatoes are browned and crisp and instant-read thermometer inserted into patty registers 165°F, 12 to 14 minutes longer.
  5. Meanwhile, in small skillet over medium-high heat, warm remaining 1⁄2 tsp oil. Add onion and bell pepper and cook 1 minute. Stir in garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add vinegar and cook, stirring, 30 seconds longer.
