Hot weather? Use that grill! That is my motto recently. Also that dinner cooks in a little foil packet doesn’t hurt on clean up either. There are so many dinners that you can make in little foil packets but I had ground beef out and we hadn’t had cheeseburgers in ages it was time to make some.
These were so simple to make and my family thought they were a fun meal. They were very simple and sometimes I need to remember the simplest meals taste the best. I used an extra shake or two of Worcestershire sauce and seasoning salt over the finished dishes (to taste). My son would like hot sauce on his. Doctor them up to your tastes!
Cheeseburger Foil Packets
A simple meal to make on your grill with minimal clean up!
- 1 1/2 lbs ground beef
- 1 egg beaten
- 1 teaspoon seasoning salt
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire
- 2 slices white bread (cheap) soaked in milk
- 6 potatoes peeled and cubed
- 1/2 lb baby carrots
- 1 medium onion, quartered
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 4 ounces of cheese, cheddar, Swiss, Colby Jack (your choice)
In a bowl combine the hamburger, egg, bread soaked in milk, seasoning salt and garlic powder. Form into four patties, set aside.
In a large bowl combine the potatoes, carrots, onion, olive oil butter, salt and black pepper until well mixed.
Spray four large pieces of foil with nonstick spray. Place 1/4 of the vegetables in the center of the foil. Top with 1 hamburger. Seal packets and place beef side up on the grill.
Grill for 35-45 minutes or until potatoes and carrots are tender and the hamburger is cooked through to your liking. You may flip packet over once during the end of cooking if desired.
When the packets are done open the top, hamburger side up and add 1/4 of the cheese to each burger. Place packets back on grill and cover for 2-3 minutes until cheese is melted.
