    Decided to do my first fatties today. Started last night putting the fatties together, one pizza and one reuben. I won't go into big detail on the process since it has been so well covered in so many great posts. But I will make a few observations:
    • make sure to let the rolled out sausage firm up in the freezer for about 30 minutes. I tried one after about 15 minutes, and it was still to soft. I got it to wrap, but it was splitting and hard to work with.
    • don't overfill with stuffing. My pizza fattie was to full and when I went to roll it, it squished a bunch of stuff out and I had to just toss the squished out fillings.
    OK... on to the pictures!

    Typical Oregon spring day.... rainy!

    Daughter wanted me to smoke some squash, so I cut some acorn squash in half, put a mixture of butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and pepper.

    Since the fatties were an experament I did some chicken with them as well.

    Put the fatties in the oven under the broiler for a couple of minutes to crisp the bacon, and after cooling a bit sliced the end to check them out.

    Little plate of goodness![​IMG]

    Did you put all the normal stuff in your reuben fattie? If so how did you roll it with the 1000 island dressing?

    Thinking I need to do another couple fatties this coming weekend. And the squash looks fabulous too!

    Nice job!

    Yup put down cheese first, then pastrami, then drained krout, then dressing. I just passed the bottle back and forth the length of it 2x - about 1/3 cup. It rolled real well since with everything layed out it only covered about 1/2 of the sausage with a 1" border on three of the sides. So when I rolled it the dressing had some where to squish to.

    EXCELLENT! I'll have to try a pizza fattie that sounds interesting, so does the ruben.
