Great for camping, or at home! The burger and veggies are so delicious and perfectly cooked! Turkey Burger Hobo Packets from Hot Eats and Cool Reads!

I think I've found a new favorite tonight! I am so geeked! The recipe I originally found used ground beef. I decided to use turkey today, because I am still trying to complete the pantry challenge and I had some ground turkey in the freezer. This turned out fabulous! You can switch it up so many different ways, with so many different veggies for a whole new meal. I've made these before only using veggies, and it's incredible that way as well. 

Turkey Burger Hobo Packets

What you need:
1 pound ground turkey
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 dashes worcestershire sauce
1/2 white onion, sliced
2 large carrots, sliced into coins
1 large red potato, halved and thinly sliced
1 c. sliced white mushrooms
butter (optional)
salt and pepper
dill weed
non stick spray

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl combine ground turkey, minced garlic, worcestershire, salt and pepper until mixed. Shape into 3 or 4 patties depending on how many servings you need. 

Lay out a piece of aluminum foil. Spray a little non stick spray. Place the turkey patty on the foil, then top with onions, potatoes, carrots and mushrooms. Lay a small slice of butter on top and sprinkle with salt, pepper and dill weed. 

Fold aluminum foil into packets around the burger and veggies and place on a cookie sheet.

Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour.
