Cheeseburger Hobo Dinner Packets
Cheeseburger Hobo Dinner Packets are a delicious twist on the traditional hobo dinner. A foil packet full of potatoes, carrots, onions, and a seasoned homemade cheeseburger makes for an easy meal
Servings: 8 foil packets
- 2 pounds ground beef, 80% lean
- 2 eggs lightly beaten
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 3 pounds red baby potatoes, cut in half or diced
- 2 pounds baby carrots, cut in half
- 8 slices cheese
- 8 sheets heavy duty aluminum foil
Assembling the packets
Prep your vegetables. I used baby carrots that I cut in half, small red potatoes cut in half or quarters, and chopped a medium onion. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine the ground beef, egg, garlic powders, salt and pepper, and mix together. Make 8 patties, set aside.
Tear off 8 sheets of heavy duty aluminum foil (about 12" x 18"). I like to stack the sheets and do one packet at a time. Spray the first sheet of foil with non-stick spray. Place about 1/8 of the potatoes, carrots, and onions in the center of the foil packet. Season vegetables with salt and pepper.
Top with a hamburger patty.
Seal up the packets and place on a tray. REPEAT these steps for the remaining 7 packets.
