The recipe listed below is for hamburgers, but I forgot to take the pictures, so I did it again on sloppy joes since I had some in my freezer. I used this recipe. It is a good one. But the idea is the same. You take a piece of cheese, cut out a face, and melt it. So fun! Again, my kids loved this Halloween inspired food activity, and it made for some great participation in the family dinner!

Start by cutting your cheese into a circle. Carve in a face.
Then put it on your patty, or your sloppy joe, or whatever, and melt it.
For this particular Halloween activity, I gave my kids plastic knives to cut out the faces. They had a bit of a hard time. A toothpick might work better.
No matter how you do it, or what you serve it on, this is a fast, easy, and fun way to add a little holiday spirit into your daily meals!
