Ingredients You Need for Fred’s Burger [Vegan]

For the Deadly Ingredients:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 vegan burger patty
  • Vamp Paste (page 128), to taste
  • 1 vegan hamburger bun
  • 2 slices vegan pepper jack cheese
  • 1 piece romaine lettuce
  • 1 slice tomato
  • 1 tablespoon Totally ’80s Cheese Sauce (page 129)
  • 1 tablespoon Sweet Onion Jam (page 130)
  • 1 tablespoon Chainsaw BBQ Sauce (page 122) or BBQ sauce of choice
  • 1 tablespoon minced roasted red peppers
  • 1 smoking gun (or your favorite instant foodsmoking device) (see Note below)

How to Prepare Fred’s Burger [Vegan]

  1. Cook the burger patty according to the package instructions. Remove the burger patty from the pan and set aside.
  2. Spread the vamp paste on the inside of both halves of the hamburger bun. Heat a small skillet over medium heat and toast the bun, cut sides down, until the insides are golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the bun to a plate.
  3. To assemble, place the burger patty on the bottom bun and top with the sliced pepper jack. Add these ingredients in this order: lettuce, tomato, cheese sauce, onion jam, and roasted red peppers. Spread the barbecue sauce on the inside of the top bun. Add the top bun.
  4. Place the entire burger in a plastic bag or another container, insert the tube of the smoking gun, close the container, and push smoke inside the bag or container for 1 minute.
  5. Serve with your favorite props (Freddy glove, fake blood—wherever your morbid imagination takes you)!
