Mini Alien Burgers


These mini alien burgers are out-of-this-world good! So easy for a last-minute Halloween party – all you need are some store-bought ingredients and some pantry ingredients and you’re ready to go.


Mini Alien Burgers


10 minutes


15 minutes




8 mini pre made beef patties

8 mini burger buns

tomato ketchup

butter lettuce

4 cheese slices

8 dill pickle slices


Alien eyes

16 green cocktail onions

16 black pitted olives

16 toothpicks


Step 1

In a large frying pan, cook mini beef patties for 8–10 minutes, flipping halfway, or until cooked through.

Step 2

Meanwhile, to make the alien eyes, slice down the length of a black olive, being careful not to cut all the way through – the aim here is you want to create an opening or be able to ‘butterfly’ it open. Carefully place a green cocktail onion inside, then skewer together with a toothpick (see the video for what it should look like). Repeat so you have 16 eyeball skewers in total (you’ll need two for each burger).

Step 3

To construct a mini monster burger, slice a burger bun in half and lightly toast. Squeeze a generous amount of tomato ketchup onto both halves, then top the bottom half with some butter lettuce. Add a cooked burger patty on top.

Step 4

To make the cheese teeth, take a slice of cheese and, using a sharp knife, cut in half diagonally. On the longest egge, cut a zig-zag pattern to create a ‘teeth’ effect. Add to the burger, along with a slice of pickle as the tongue.

Step 5

Finish off burger by topping with the other half of the bun. Insert two eyeball skewers into the top of the burger. Repeat decoration process with remaining ingredients, then serve.
