Rebecca and I are very excited to announce a new recurring series here on Scared Shirtless! In addition to a great love of all things horror, we also both love to cook and eat, so we figured, why not combine the two from time to time?! This new series, which we plan to do every month or two, will have us pairing a horror movie with some themed food. Kind of like that old series on TBS, Dinner and a Movie… do you guys remember that? I really enjoyed that series, and I hope you’ll enjoy this one.

For our first horror d’oeuvres party we decided to pair the slasher-classic Friday the 13th, with a few themed food selections. We decided to make some skewers, in honor of Kevin Bacon’s skewering by arrow, cheesy chicken sliders because of course you need a burger-type food when camping… and because marinara sauce looks good and bloody, and s’mores bars for dessert, because camping and s’mores go together like Jason and his hockey mask. Every dish was a success, and we thoroughly enjoyed eating our treats as we sat down to watch Mrs. Voorhees slaughter all those camp counselors.

Cheesy chicken meatball sliders

Cheesy Chicken Meatball Sliders with Bloody Marinara Sauce

Makes about 16 sliders

Ingredients:

For the meatballs:

1 lb ground chicken

1/4 whole or 2% milk

1 large egg

1/4 cup plain breadcrumbs

2 Tbsp fresh chopped parsley, or about 2 tsp dried parsley

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 large shallot, minced

1 1/2 tsp kosher salt

1 tsp ground mustard

1/2 tsp dried oregano

Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

2-3 sticks mozzarella string cheese, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

To assemble the sliders:

Slider rolls or small dinner rolls, buttered and toasted

Warmed marinara sauce

Grated parmesan cheese

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

2. Mix together the ground chicken, milk, egg, breadcrumbs, parsley, garlic, shallot, salt, mustard, oregano and black pepper in a large bowl, until combined.

3. Take about 1 Tbsp of the mixture in your hand, place a piece of string cheese in the center, and take another tbsp of the mixture and cover the cheese. Press together so that it forms a meatball, with the cheese in the center surrounded by the ground meat mixture. Place on the prepared baking sheet, and repeat with the rest of the meatball mixture/string cheese pieces.

4. Bake for about 20 minutes. Then switch the oven to broil, and broil for about 2-3 minutes, until the tops of the meatballs are browned.

5. To assemble, place a meatball on a slider roll, place a dollop of marinara sauce on top, and then sprinkle on some Parmesan cheese.

Eating Marshmallows

S'mores bars

S’mores Bars

Makes 12-16 bars

Ingredients:

3 Tbsp unsalted butter, plus more for greasing the pan

1 cup graham cracker crumbs

3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk

1 1/3 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Pinch of salt

1 cup mini marshmallows

2 whole graham crackers

Directions:

1. Line an 8×8 baking pan with tinfoil, and lightly butter the inside.

2. Melt the butter, and mix with the graham cracker crumbs in a small bowl until evenly coated. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan, and press down firmly (we used the bottom of a glass).

3. In a small saucepan, melt together the sweetened condensed milk, and chocolate chips over medium heat, until smooth, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat, and add the vanilla extract and salt.

4. Pour the chocolate mixture into the baking dish, and smooth with a spatula. Add the the mini marshmallows on top, pressing down a bit into the chocolate. Break the graham crackers into pieces, and stick between the marshmallows.

5. Cover and refridgerate until firm, about 4 hours. Remove from the baking dish, using the foil to lift the bars out. Cut into 12-16 pieces, and enjoy!

We hope you all still have a good appetite and try these recipes out. They are excellent on their own, but even better with a good horror movie to enjoy while eating them!

    Okay…this is just too awesome!!! This is such a great idea and I look forward to it 🙂 If I can make a request I vote for Nightmare on Elm St. , my favorite horror series. I would love to see what foods you could come up with for that…you guys have such great imaginations! We watched a few good horror/thrillers this week-end. Nothing real gory but definitely worth watching…The Cottage, The Lodger, House at the End of the Street, and Nightwatch.
