Hamburger tin foil dinners in the oven
These delicious hamburger foil packet dinners pack a lot of flavor in a little packet. Each aluminum foil packet is filled with a hamburger patty made from ground beef, carrots, potatoes, and seasonings. They are fully customizable and cook up easily in the oven, on the grill, or over the campfire.
Hamburger tin foil dinners, or hobo dinners as my Mother calls them were a favorite in my household growing up. They were easy and delicious and as a kid, I loved helping to fill each packet with ingredients.
As a mom myself I love how easy they are to make as cooking is not my specialty. Despite not being a great cook these have never come out wrong! They also require little prep time and clean up is a breeze. Just the kind of easy mom meal every busy mom needs.
Tips for making your own foil packet hobo dinners:
- Make sure to place your hobo dinner foil packets on a baking sheet in case any liquid leaks out.
- If you use extra lean beef you may need to add a bit of extra butter or other liquid to keep your meat nice and moist.
- Use a vegetable brush to easily clean your carrots and potatoes
- Customize each packet, add extra veggies, leave out onions, don’t add the seasonings if your kids are super picky. Use toothpicks with colored ends to help tell which belongs to which person.
