Jack-0-Lantern Burgers

Halloween Dinner Idea Made Easy!


One of the things that I am focused on during Halloween is getting a GOOD dinner on the table for my kids in between the fun at school, going to different places to show off costumes, and out for Trick-or-Treating. There is so much fun going on during the day and planning ahead will help you stay focused on the fun of the day. I love this recipe – super easy, and kid friendly!! There are a few things that I am SURE that my kids will eat all of, and this is one of them. With a little bit of creativity, you can turn a regular family dinner night into a festive and fun Halloween Dinner Idea!


  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 10 slices process American cheese
  • 10 hamburger buns, split


  • 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.
  • 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. Yield: 10 servings.
