Grilled hamburgers in a foil pouch with lots of veggies. It's fast easy and everyone loves it. I remember making it for my kids all the time.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb ground beef, divided into 4 portions
  • 1 large onion, sliced into 4 rings
  • 4 large carrots, each pouch gets one sliced
  • 4 medium potatoes, washed, each pouch gets one sliced thick, 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick
  • 14 lb margarine
  • 4 large piece heavy aluminum foil, each the size of a cookie sheet
  • salt & pepper

Directions

  1. Lay out the foil and in the center of each.
  2. Put a pat of margarine.
  3. Lay on 1 onion slice and push a burger patty on to it.
  4. Stack a sliced carrot on one side of the Burger.
  5. Stack a sliced potato on the opposite side.
  6. I like to set them on their edge and push them into the burger.
  7. Salt and pepper to taste and top with another pat of margarine.
  8. Fold 2 sides to the center and roll to top of Burger.
  9. Fold up the 2 remaining edges to make a pouch.
  10. Grill till carrots and potatoes are fork tender, about 30 minutes.
  11. Or bake at 350 deg for about 30 minutes.
  12. Great warmed up in the microwave.

Growing up we called these Hobos. My mom always baked them, didn't know you could do them on the grill! Always a big hit in our family. Now I make them for my husband and he loves it too - we add more spices to the meat - garlic powder, maybe some red pepper. It's great!

A quick and easy Friday evening meal when everyone is going in different directions. The patties were nice and juicy but lacked in flavor. Should I do this again I would have to add some seasonings to the meat as the overall flavor was rather bland. PAC Fall 2007
