Jack-O-Lantern Burgers

  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 10 slices process American cheese
  • 10 hamburger buns, split
  1. In a large bowl, combine soup mix, ketchup, brown sugar, horseradish and chili powder. Crumble beef over mixture; mix well. Shape into 10 patties. Grill, broil or pan-fry until the meat is no longer pink.
  2. Cut eyes, nose and mouth out of each cheese slice to create a jack-o-lantern. Place cheese on burgers; cook until cheese is slightly melted, about 1 minute. Serve on buns.
