In this tutorial, Catherine’s Plates will teach you how to make these quick and easy foil packets. You can tweak and season this to your liking and add whatever you have on hand. Watch the video below to learn the step by step instructions on how to make this.


  • 1 – 1/2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 tbsp hamburger seasoning blend
  • 1 medium yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 lb potatoes, peeled and diced small
  • 1 lb carrots, sliced thinly
  • 4 slices American or cheddar cheese


  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried parsley
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil
  • 4 tbsp butter


Step 1

To start, slice the veggies accordingly and set them aside. Next, transfer the diced potatoes and half of the sliced carrots to a large mixing bowl and add 2 tbsp cooking oil, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp paprika, 1/4 tsp onion powder, and 1/4 tsp ground black pepper. Mix together, making sure the veggies are nicely coated. Set aside. In another mixing bowl, add the ground beef and season it with 1 tbsp hamburger seasoning blend. Mix together, then form it into four patties. (Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F at this point.)

Step 2

Cut four pieces of foil into 12″ x 18″ sizes and start assembling the packets. In the center of each foil, add 1/4 of the carrots and potatoes mixture, lay two of the onions right across, top it with a burger patty, then add 1 tbsp of butter in the center. Take both long ends of the foil to the center and fold over to seal. Flatten both ends of the foil, then roll it inside two times. Repeat these steps to make three more foil packets. Once done, lay them on a baking sheet and place them in the oven for 35 to 45 minutes. After baking, open up the packets and add a slice of cheese to each. Place them back in the oven for two minutes to let the cheese melt. Serve and enjoy!
