It’s a family tradition to eat what my mom always called pumpkin-face hamburgers on Halloween. I would come home from school knowing the meat, mustard and mozzarella concoction baked in biscuits with Jack O’Lantern faces would be served up alongside warm cider simmering in the crock pot. My sister and I still make them every year. Only my holes for the eyes and mouth look more like a ghost, so I’ve altered the title to call them Ghost Face Hamburgers. Some day I’ll pass the recipe on to Charlotte and explain the modification necessary for someone who doesn’t bake like Nana.
Ghost Face Hamburgers
1 pound hamburger
8-ounce bag shredded mozzarella
1/4-1/2 cup yellow mustard
2-4 tubes biscuits
Cook hamburger, drain, stir in mustard and mozzarella. Flatten half or whole biscuit on tray, scoop on mixture and top with the other half or a whole biscuit, poking three holes in it for the eyes and mouth. Press top and bottom together around edges. Bake for 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees.
