Easy Jack O’ Lantern Cheeseburgers

Are you kids excited for Halloween? Mine were already talking about Halloween before school started. They love to dress up and get candy. But before they go Trick or Treating, my kids already know that they have to eat their dinner beforehand so that once we have completed our adventure, off to the bath and bed they go.

This mom loves to be prepared on Halloween night and the best way to get them to eat their dinner is to plan to fix something that I know they will eat. Last year, I fixed a pizza and salad. But you also can’t go wrong with these Easy Jack O’ Lantern Cheeseburgers. If you have a picky eater, you could even draw a pumpkin face using ketchup or mustard too.


  • Cooked Hamburger Patties 
  • American Cheese

Directions for Making These Easy Jack O’ Lantern Cheeseburgers

Grill Your Hamburgers and Gather Ingredients

Use a knife to carefully cut out a Jack O’ Lantern face.
Use the knife to lift the face pieces out of the slice of cheese.
Place cheese on the hot hamburger patty. The heat from the hamburger patty should slightly melt the cheese without damaging the Jack O’ Lantern face.
Let your child add topping and the bun!
Serve and Enoy!
