Halloween party food really doesn’t require crazy molds and a whole lot of effort. Sometimes is just reinventing the foods you already eat. Sandwiches, pizza, pudding, and even hamburgers can very easily be dressed up in a festive way to make Halloween fun for everyone. All you have to do is think about the basic Halloween characters (monster, spider, mummy, etc.) and you can turn any meal into a Halloween dinner!

- 2 lbs Ground Hamburger/Hamburger Patties
- 1 lb Muenster Cheese Slices
- 2 Tomatoes
- 1 Jar Sandwich Sliced Pickles
- 8 Hamburger Buns
- Ketchup or BBQ Sauce

Cut teeth designs into one side of the eight slices of Muenster Cheese. Separate each set of “teeth” with wax paper and allow to chill until monster burger assembly.
Top sixteen toothpicks with olives (horizontally so the stuffed olives look like eyes). Set aside.
Season ground hamburger meat with salt and pepper. Shape into eight hamburger patties. Heat large skillet on medium heat and pan fry hamburgers until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees. Remove burgers from pan and allow to rest on a warm plate lined with paper towels. Repeat until you have cooked all eight hamburgers.
(Optional) Toast Buns
Place the bottom of each sandwich/hamburger bun on a large platter or cutting board. Top all eight bottom buns with one slice of tomato. Add your hamburger on top of the tomatoes. Lay a sandwich sliced pickle off to the front side of your hamburgers (like a tongue). Place the Muenster Cheese on top of the pickle burger, teeth side to the front. Add ketchup/BBQ sauce to the top buns and set each on top of the cheeseburgers.
Garnish each burger with two olive eyes. Serve immediately.
