    Well this weekend I took the plunge. My wife wanted ribs and smoked onions and I thought this would be a perfect time to try my hand at a fattie. I threw together a ground beef, gorganzola cheese, vidalia onions, and portabella mushrooms. Wrapped it all with bacon and hit it with a little garlic pepper.

    I gotta say it was fantastic! Maybe even better than the ribs... My 2 year old who eats like a bird ate 3 slices and loved every bite... since then I have had fatty on the brain. It has been hard to think about anything else..

    Tonight, on a bit of a whim I decided to throw together a breakfast fattie for the boys in the morning... Then thought, why stop there?

    Got to thinking about jambalaya, etouffee, and other cajun dishes. I grabbed a couple chubs of sausage, some shrimp, some lump crab, a little muenster cheese, some vidalia onions, and red beans and rice.

    Figure I'll throw the fattie on a bed of red beans and rice when it is finished up in an hour or so.... yum!

    I had intended to throw in some green onion, celery, and bell pepper. Unfortunately I completely forgot to pick them up while at the grocery store. I really did throw these together on a whim. pretty much trying to appease and side track my 2 year old who was having a rough evening since his momma had to go to work. I asked him if he'd like to help me smoke a fattie for breakfast in the morning and his eyes lit up, he stopped crying, and said YES!...

    And that is how these fatties were born... all to appease a 2 year old :)

    BTW he loved his slice of breakfast fattie this morning for breakfast!

    I should have mentioned... it turned out phenomenal! Extremely tasty, I can only imagine how good it will be the next time when I put everything in that I had planned... though sometimes simple is sweet too.
  9. This sounds great, I love Cajun food and putting your fatty on red beans and rice is a wonderful idea, I wish I thought of that! Did you saute everything before you stuffed the fatty?

    I only sauteed the onions, original plan was to saute the onions, peppers, and celery.

    That is one good looking fattie. Think I am going to try one and fill it with Dirty Rice. Might be good. Wish I didn't have to go to work, because I would be heading to the store to make one.

    Be sure to post up some Qview! My original thought was to do that! I was a little worried the rice might get a little over cooked. I'd be very interested to know how it turns out.
  15. LOL I knew I had a fattie problem when I started firing up the smoker, just for fatties. Instead of throwing a fattie on with the chicken, ribs etc.[​IMG] Fatties look awesome btw
