"This recipe combines hamburgers with onions, baby carrots, and potatoes in individually cooked foil packets. This makes clean up a snap, and keeps the grill clean, too. This also works well with round steaks."

  1. Preheat grill for medium-high heat.
  2. Form the ground beef into individual patties, and place each patty on a piece of foil large enough to hold the patty and some vegetables. Layer each patty with onion slices, carrots, and potato slices. Season with seasoned salt, salt, and pepper to taste. Wrap foil around food, and seal each packet tightly.
  3. Grill 30 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. Carefully open each packet (the steam that escapes will be very hot), and serve.

Excellent. I made these in the oven, 350* for 25 min. I added garlic powder spicy montreal steak seasoning and worcestershire sauce to the meat mixture. I also added garlic cloves to the packets and butter on top. Definately will be making again and again.


My whole family loves these! We've had this dish several times. I like to see other variations, so here's what I do a little different. I add about a tablespoon of cream of mushroom soup with garlic on top of the raw meat before adding the veggies, and closing the packet. That way it makes it's own gravy, and it is GOOD, GOOD, GOOD! Thanks for the great recipe, Michelle!


I just wanted to add a note although i didn't make this exact recipe... my uncle and mother have been making these for years, pretty much the only difference is Cheese... lots of cheese melted over all the ingredients! Can't go wrong! Also adding a1 to the ground beef always adds a bit of extra zing... Great to make and throw in the cooler for camping! Happy grilling...
