Ogre and Pumpkin Sliders


1 egg
1 cup soft bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pound ground turkey
5 teaspoons prepared pesto
3 miniature fresh mozzarella cheese balls, halved
3 pimiento-stuffed olives, halved widthwise
5 slices process American cheese
10 hamburger buns, split


In a large bowl, combine the egg, bread crumbs and salt. Crumble turkey over mixture; mix well. Shape into ten 2-1/2-in. patties. Grill, broil or pan-fry for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 165° and juices run clear.

Drop 1 teaspoon pesto onto five burgers; top each with a mozzarella ball half and an olive half.

Cut eyes, nose and mouth from each cheese slice to create a jack-o'-lantern. Place cheese on five burgers; cook until cheese is slightly melted, about 30 seconds. Serve burgers on buns. Yield: 10 sandwiches.
