Spooky-licious Halloween Burgers

A fun treat for Halloween

Spooky-licious Monster Hamburgers! :)

Halloween is so much fun you guys! I absolutely love this time of the year for all the fun treats one can make. ​Some might say Halloween is for kids, but I believe really strong that you should always, I mean, always, stay young inside because it is so much fun! :) That is why, being almost 30, I still love creating fun treats for Halloween.

Before we get talking about burgers, I would like to take a moment and talk to you about burger buns. I did a fun project a while ago for which I had to make burgers. I decided I want to find a perfect burger bun recipe as I have tried so many and always been left unimpressed. I did some research on YouTube and found a great tutorial. Yes, it does take some work to make these burger buns that I personally think are the best! But, man, it is so worth all the work! They are so amazing, so pillowy and soft and delicious :) I was sold on my first go and this has become my go to recipe for burgers. The recipe is from Joshua Weissman and you can find it here. This is one of the only recipes from another blogger/recipe creator that I have fallen in love with as it is without making major changes to it. The only things I adjusted were using about half the salt and using fresh yeast instead of instant yeast, which is a personal favourite. I really, really recommend you try Joshua's recipe, I promise, you won't regret it :)

If you are wondering why these specific ingredients for the burger, then let me explain myself :) I wanted to use ingredients that have a colour scheme that fits into the Halloween theme. I was really sceptical about the olives, but both myself and my boyfriend were really positively surprised by how it tasted. We really liked it :) This being said, you can of course decide yourself what goes into your burger. Have fun with it :)

Happy Halloween Lovelies!

RECIPE

Spooky-licious Halloween Burgers

A fun treat for Halloween

​INGREDIENTS

  • 2 burger buns (the recipe I use is linked on my website)

  • 200-250g minced meat (I use 50/50 pork and beef)

  • mayonnaise

  • ketchup

  • 1 red onion

  • 2 pickles

  • 1 tomato

  • some black olives (de-stoned)

  • 4 slices of cheddar cheese

  • 1 white onion (for the teeth)

  • 1 garlic clove

DIRECTIONS

  1. Start by preparing all vegetables. Slice the red onion finely, slice the pickles, tomatoes and the black olives. Leave four olives aside for the eyes.

  2. To make the eyes, peel the garlic and cut pieces that will fit into the olives. Put the garlic pieces into the olives and pierce with a wooden toothpick. Leave aside.

  3. Cut the burger buns with a bread knife and toast on a hot dry pan until brown and crunchy. Leave aside.

  4. To make the burger patties divide the minced meat in two and flatten on a baking paper, season with salt and pepper. Fry on a hot dry pan (medium-high heat) seasoned side down. Season also the top side with salt and pepper. Fry for about two minutes each side or until cooked to your liking. Remove onto a cutting board or a plate and top with two slices of cheese.

  5. Spread some mayonnaise and ketchup on each side of the burger bun halves. Take the bottom burger bun half and add the onion, pickles, tomato and black olives on top. Lastly top with the patty and cover with the second half of the bun.

  6. Cut the teeth out of white onion, pierce the bun halves with a knife where you want to place the teeth and insert the onion pieces (see video for detailed instructions).

  7. Lastly finish with the eyes on top.

  8. This recipe makes two burgers. Adjust the recipe as needed to make more.
