By Paula Deen


Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 7 minutes

Cook time: 7 minutes

Servings: 7


  • 1 1/2 lbs ground beef
  • 1/2 cup crumbled butter crackers
  • 1 large beaten egg
  • 3 cloves chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 4 medium thinly sliced red potatoes
  • 1 medium thinly sliced Vidalia onion
  • 3 medium peeled and cut into 1/4-inch rounds carrots
  • to taste kosher salt
  • to taste freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


Preheat oven to 350 °F. In a large bowl, mix together beef, cracker crumbs, egg, garlic, Worcestershire, cheese, salt and pepper.

Pat the mixture into 4-6 (6-inch) patties. Place each patty onto 2 layers of heavy-duty aluminum foil, enough to cover and close.

Add potatoes, onion, and carrots to the same bowl and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season with a pinch of salt and pepper, tossing to combine.

Top each patty with an equal portion of the vegetable mixture then seal each packet tightly. Place on a sheet tray and bake for 40 minutes, until the burger is cooked through and the vegetables are soft.
