If you’re in need of a recipe for Halloween, here it is!

I once heard that Halloween night is one of the top nights for pizza delivery. While pizza is wonderful, so are burgers…especially burgers that have been Halloween-ified.

When it comes to Halloween, I prefer cute Halloween over creepy Halloween. For instance, I have zero interest in scary movies because I will be creeped out by them for years when they sneak into my mind while I’m in the dark at night.

Another example of how I hate creepy Halloween stuff is this memory I have of going to a haunted house and it was one of the worst experiences of my life. I have never been that scared. I ran out of the haunted house and didn’t stop running until I got to my car. I was so freaked out! All that to say, my jack-o-lanterns will always be smiling and never be gory, gross or scary. So, in true me fashion – this recipe is for a cheerful (not creepy) Halloween burger, complete with a slice of cheese with a smiling jack-o lantern face cut out of it.

To jazz up the flavor of this burger, I added Sir Kensington’s® Chipotle Mayo, which is a unique mayo in a few ways. First, it’s flavorful…not spicy. I don’t handle overly spicy things (just like I don’t handle scary things), so this mayo is wonderful. Secondly, Sir Kensington’s® mayonnaise is the first and only mayonnaise to use Certified Humane, free range eggs. Finally, Sir Kensington’s® mayonnaises use 100% sunflower oil or 100% avocado oil.

Have you ever made any Halloween-themed food that was super fun? What was it?!

Halloween Burgers


cooked burger patties (beef, turkey or veggie)
Sir Kensington’s® Chipotle Mayo
slices of cheese
sliced olives


Use a paring knife to cut a jack-o-lantern face in your cheese slice. Top burger with a dollop of Sir Kensington’s® Chipotle Mayo, the jack-o-lantern cheese, and pickles. If you want to add some “eyes,” slice the olives and stick into your burger with toothpicks.


  1. Aww these are so cute!! I’m with you on not wanting to be super scared. I do like haunted houses sometimes, but I have to be in a certain mood. I really don’t like scary or gory movies. No thanks! I haven’t been this creative, but a few times on Halloween I made spaghetti and tried to create a mozzarella spider web on the top. ;)

  2. I am 100% with you on liking cute Halloween but not creepy Halloween.

  3. The last few years I have made stuffed peppers with orange peppers. I cut out jack o lantern faces in the front (just like you did the cheese). They are super cute, easy to make, and still delicious.

    I like the burger idea though! I have also seen people make quesadillas with a face cut in the top tortilla. Cute, but I’ve never tried it.

  4. These are so cute! I “awwed” when I saw the photo. Also, mayo on burgers makes them so much better!

  5. This mayo is the best!!!! I love it with fries or roasted potatoes. And these burgers are adorable.
