Jack-o'-Lantern Burgers Recipe

Jack-o'-Lantern Burgers Recipe

It's fun to "carve" cheesy faces on these nicely seasoned burgers I served at my Halloween theme party. Hungry trick-or-treaters in our family welcome the hearty sandwiches…and they're a can't-miss entree for a casual holiday get-together. —Vicki Schlechter, Davis, California
