Happy Friday the 13th! Finally getting a Friday the 13th in October is super exciting for us as horror fans! In fact, we were so excited that despite already having a Friday the 13th inspired recipe, we came up with a new one! This time, we took our inspiration from one of our favorite movies of the series, Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday. What inspiration could possibly come from this movie? Burgers. 2 for 1 Burgers as a matter of fact!
For those of you who have yet to see Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Chapter, “Jason Voorhees, the living, breathing essence of evil, is back for one fierce, final fling [not really the last one]! Tracked down and blown to bits by a special FBI task force, everyone now assumes that he’s finally dead. But everybody assumes wrong. Jason has been reborn with the bone-chilling ability to assume the identity of anyone he touches. The terrifying truth is that he could be anywhere, or anybody. In this shocking, blood-soaked finale to Jason’s carnage-ridden reign of terror, the horrible secret of his unstoppable killing instinct is finally revealed.”
The inspiration for our 2 for 1 Burgers comes directly from the movie. Believe it or not, they are actually made in the film! Really what it came down to, was that we wanted to see if they could actually be made. In the scene they are featured in you only see them in raw form. The results were in and they DO work. Realistically, they aren’t much more than your standard hamburger, but they sure do look fun and are perfect for a Halloween party! The only suggestion we really have with these are to use full fat ground beef to minimize the risk of them breaking.
We hope you enjoyed our test of the 2 for 1 Burgers! Now, we’d love to know your favorite Friday the 13th film! Let us know in the comments below or tag us on social media! We’d love to hear from you! Happy Friday the 13th!
- 4 Hamburger Patties (we used 1/3 lb patties)
- Shape your patty into the hockey mask shape on a piece of wax paper (this will help you transfer to the pan). You may want to flatten your patty fairly thin so it doesn't puff up as it cooks.
- Cut the eye holes out first. (We used the small side of a jigger to measure)
- Add the eye hole beef to the top of the mask to re-enforce it.
- Cut the mouth holes next. (We used the small part of a funnel to measure)
- Repeat for each patty.
- Season patties.
- Heat skillet.
- Carefully add the shaped patty to skillet.
- Season the other side of the patty.
- Cook to desired temperature.
- Remove from skillet and let rest.
- Decorate the burgers with ketchup.
- Serve either as a hamburger steak or on a bun.
