  1. Hiya all,

    After reading the forums for a while and a horrible jerky experience, I figured a fattie would be a good starting place for me. I was amazed at how good they turned out. I made 3 total, 1 pound of meat each.

    - Sage sausage with sharp cheddar cheese

    - Hot sausage with sharp cheddar cheese

    - Ground beef with honey bbq sauce and cheddar cheese

    I rolled them different sizes to experiment on which worked best. Funny thing is that they all worked great. [​IMG]

    The ground beef was 80/20 and I did not use a binder like eggs or bread crumbs. It did not fall apart like I was worried about. The cut fattie in the photo is the ground beef.

    I used a quart sized zip bag for these. In the future I will use a gallon size so I can get more of a pinwheel effect.
