I’m always trying to come up with fun recipes for my grandchildren. Since these mini burgers starred at their trick-or-treat party, my grandkids have been requesting them often. They love to help me make the sliders. —Pamela Shank, Parkersburg, West Virginia

  • 1-1/4 pounds ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups frozen seasoned curly fries
  • 4 slices American cheese, halved
  • 8 Hawaiian sweet rolls, split
  • 1/4 cup pimiento-stuffed olives, drained
  • Ketchup


  1. Shape ground beef into eight small patties; sprinkle with salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet, cook burgers over medium heat until a thermometer reads 160°, 3-4 minutes on each side. Meanwhile, bake curly fries according to package directions. When cool enough to handle, cut fries in half.
  2. Add a half slice of cheese to each burger; cook until slightly melted, about 1 minute. Place burgers on rolls. Using toothpicks, attach curly fries to rolls to look like antennas and arms, and attach olives to look like eyes. Serve with ketchup.
