How To Make Halloween Burgers

  • Cook the burgers – use whichever cooking method you prefer – grill, fry or BBQ
  • Prepare the burger toppings – whilst the burgers cook prepare your Monster burger toppings ready to serve.
  • Cut the cheese – cut a zigzag teeth pattern along one edge of the cheese slices.
  • Make Monster eyes – thread an olive onto the end of each cocktail stick
  • Make up the Monster Burgers – slice the burger buns, add a handful of shredded lettuce to the bottom, slide on the cooked burger. Drizzle over some ketchup, put the dill pickle slice in place as a tongue. Place the cheese teeth on top so they hang out of the bun, add some onions and put the top of the burger bun on. Stick the cocktail stick olive eyes into the top of the burger bun. Then serve!
