Cheeseburger Hobo Packets

These easy foil packets are a great way to make a quick dinner on the grill! These Cheeseburger Hobo Packets are made with potatoes, carrots and a homemade cheeseburger! Such a simple foil packet recipe and so delicious!


  • 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


  1. Preheat grill to 350 degrees.
  2. In a bowl combine the hamburger, egg, seasoning salt and garlic powder. Form into four patties, set aside.
  3. In a large bowl combine the remaining ingredients except cheese slices. Mix until combined.
  4. 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. 
  5. 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. 
  6. 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. 


These can also be made in the oven. 
Simple preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the foil packets, beef side up on a large baking sheet and bake 45 minutes or until vegetables are tender and the ground beef reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees F.
