Cheeseburger Hobo Packet

Here is another awesome and easy way to feed the whole hiking squad: a Cheeseburger Hobo Packet! Enjoy this burger meal without the bun!


  • 1 lb ground hamburger 80% lean
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 tsp seasoning salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 4 small potatoes peeled and sliced
  • 1 lb baby carrots
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 4 slices cheese


    • Preheat grill to 350 degrees.
    • In a bowl combine the hamburger, egg, seasoning salt and garlic powder. Form into four patties, set aside.
    • In a large bowl combine the remaining ingredients except cheese slices. Mix until combined.
    • Spray four 12'' x18'' pieces of foil with nonstick spray. Place 1/4 of the vegetables in the center of the foil. Top with 1 beef patty. Seal packets and place beef side up on the grill.
    • Grill for 35-45 minutes or until potatoes and carrots are tender and the ground beef reaches 160 degrees F. I flipped mine over during the last 20 minutes of cooking.
    • When the packets are done open the top, hamburger patty facing up, and add a piece of cheese. Close grill cover and grill 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted.
