Jack-O-Lantern Burgers

Rated as 4.72 out of 5 Stars

"It's fun to 'carve' cheesy faces for these nicely seasoned burgers I served at my Halloween theme party. Hungry trick-or-treaters in our family welcome the hearty sandwiches...and they're a can't-miss entree for a casual holiday get-together. -Vicki Schlechter, Davis, California"

  1. In a large bowl, combine soup mix, ketchup, brown sugar, horseradish and chili powder. Crumble beef over mixture; mix well. Shape into 10 patties. Grill, broil or pan-fry until the meat is no longer pink.
  2. Cut eyes, nose and mouth out of each cheese slice to create a jack-o-lantern. Place cheese on burgers; cook until cheese is slightly melted, about 1 minute. Serve on buns.

These were a big hit at my Halloween Party.People loved the Jack-O-Lantern cheese slices. I used a different method to prepare the meat, very flavorful and juicy: 4lbs beef, 4 T Worchestershire ...

Great burger recipe! I made these for a BBQ over the weekend and they were a hit.

These are great! The horseradish was a great idea!

These are sooooo cute! Thanks for the great idea. Will be maiking these hopefully Halloween night. Burgers sound yummy too.

These are great-the addition of the chili powder and horseradish gives these a nice kick.

Very good I added bread crumbs and a little olive oil, People at tailgate party loves them.

These are so good! I made them as mini-burgers on Hawaiian rolls and they were great! Awesome flavor!
