  • 1 pound ground beef or turkey
  • 4 burger buns
  • 4 slices of cheese (your choice of type)
  • Lettuce, tomato, and pickles for toppings
  • Condiments such as ketchup, mustard, and mayonnaise
  • Olive slices and toothpicks for decoration


  1. Preparing the Patties:
    • Divide the ground meat into four equal portions and shape them into patties.
    • Season the patties with salt and pepper on both sides to taste.
  2. Cooking the Patties:
    • Preheat a grill or stovetop pan over medium-high heat.
    • Cook the patties to your desired level of doneness, flipping them halfway through cooking.
  3. Assembling the Monster Faces:
    • Once the patties are cooked, place a slice of cheese on each patty to melt slightly.
    • Place the patties on the bottom halves of the burger buns.
    • Arrange lettuce, tomato, and pickles to create monster “faces.” For example, use lettuce for hair, tomato slices for tongues, and pickles for eyebrows or noses.
  4. Creating Eyes:
    • Stick toothpicks through olive slices and then into the top of the burgers to create eerie eyes.
  5. Final Assembly:
    • Drizzle your desired condiments over the toppings.
    • Cover the burgers with the top halves of the buns.
