♬ Spooky Scary Skeletons - LVCRFT

We didn't think the perfect Halloween-themed meal existed before today, but now we know it definitely does. This spooky, scary skeleton burger by TikTok user @the_keto_dealer has just the right amount of ghostly whimsy with its black skull bun and is spiced with serrano peppers for a hair-raising kick. It is surprisingly keto-friendly, too, with simple, nutritious ingredients and a blink-and-you-miss-it preparation that's seriously quick. You can serve this burger to celebrate the entire month of October, as an All Hallows' Eve lunch, or just to get a bit dark 'n' spooky whenever you feel like it.

To make this petrifying treat, start off by making the keto-approved bun. Combine one egg with three tablespoons almond flour, a tablespoon sour cream, 1/4 teaspoon baking powder, a teaspoon water, and a splash of black food colouring. (If you don't have black food colouring, simply combine one part blue food colouring with two-and-a-half parts green food colouring and three parts red food colouring.) Mix it all together and pour into a Skull Dash Mini Waffle Maker ($18) to create frightening (and really cute) black skeleton buns. On the side, pan-fry a burger patty with muenster and gouda cheeses, then layer on top of your bun. Next up? Swirl on some mayo and add a squirt of no-sugar-added ketchup and some serrano peppers for the perfect complements to your uncanny, superfestive snack.
