Burger & Veggie Packets

This is such a quick, easy, & versatile meal to throw together any night of the week. We had these for dinner last night and they were so good and just the right amount of food.

Burger & Veggie Packets
(Recipe for 2 servings)


- 1/2 lb lean ground beef
- 1-2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1-2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp onion powder (or you can use sliced onion)
- 1/4 tsp salt and pepper
- appr 1/2 cup per packet of various veggies to accompany your packets(I used carrots, halved lengthwise to help them cook faster, diced potatoes, onion slices in mine and a corn on cob in the hubs') You can use peppers, zucchini, squash, mushrooms, a frozen mixed assortment, etc. It's SUPER versatile!


Heat oven to 450. Tear 2 sheets of foil, appr. 16 in x 12 in. This will leave you plenty of room to pile veggies, and fold over packets to seal them.

Mix beef, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt & pepper. Shape beef into 2 patties.

Place 1 patty each on a piece of foil. Top each patty with a pile of veggies. Place corn on cob right next to patty if using one. Sprinkle veggies with appr. 1/4 tsp garlic powder and salt/pepper. Don't be afraid to over-season! 

Bring up sides of foil so edges meet. Seal foil and fold into a tight 1/2 inch fold. Fold again. Fold other sides to seal. Allow a little room in packet for heat expansion. Just make sure it's sealed tightly and folded over well. Place packets on large cookie sheet and bake 35-40 minutes, until meat is cooked through and veggies are tender.

Serve and enjoy!!! So stinkin' good with some Heinz 57! YUM! These things are so easy, quick, and healthy! Change the veggies up with your favorites, or whatever's in season. I even served some green beans alongside as well.

I hope you give it a try for an easy, weeknight meal!
