*Ingredients
+Burger:
°1 1/2 lbs. Ground beef (80/20 is best)
°1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
°1/2 teaspoon black pepper
°1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
°1/2 teaspoon onion powder
°1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
+To prepare the vegetables:
°1 pound small potatoes, cut into cubes
°1 pound mushrooms, cut into quarters
°1 yellow or red onion, thickly sliced
°2 tablespoons of olive oil
°1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
°1/2 teaspoon paprika
°1/2 teaspoon oregano
°1/2 teaspoon parsley
°Salt and Pepper
+To serve:
°Kraft Heinz Simply Ketchup
°Miracle whip
°lettuce
°tomatoes
°4 slices of cheddar cheese or cheese of your choice
*Methods
Preheat grill 400 degrees. *See notes about campfire and oven directions. * Cut four strips of heavy-duty aluminum foil approximately 2 feet long.
Add beef, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Worcestershire sauce to a bowl. Use your fingers to gently work the seasoning into the beef. Form into four patties.
Mix potatoes, mushrooms and onions with olive oil, garlic powder, paprika, oregano and parsley. Sprinkle with salt & pepper.
If you’re making them over a campfire, place a cabbage leaf on the bottom of each foil strip before adding the vegetables. Otherwise, put the veggies on the bag first and the burger on top.
Bring the two short sides together and fold them over. Fold/roll the remaining two sides.
Place directly on grill grate, cover and cook for 25-30 minutes, or until burgers register 165°.
Carefully (carefully—the steam can be very hot!), loosen the bags. If desired, place a slice of cheese on top of each burger. Wrap the cheese loosely and let the cheese melt for a few minutes. Top your burger with Miracle Whip or Heinz Simply Ketchup plus your favorite toppings and serve.
Enjoy !
