Busy fatty day.

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

So I ground 18 lbs of sausage last wekend.  This weekend it was time to make some fatties and stock up the freezer. I did 5 lbs of chicken and 5 lbs of breakfast sausage and my smoker fits about 8 fatties comfortably so I did 3 chicken cordon bleu, 2 chicken florentine and 3 blueberry pancake.

 

Chicken "sausage"

 

5 lbs chicken thighs

1 lb bacon

1 tbsp salt

1 tbsp CBP

1/2 olive oil

2 tbsp granulated garlic

1/2 pancko bread crumbs

 

 

Breakfast Sausage:

5 lbs pork shoulder

3 tsp salt (reduced from 5 tsp)

1 1/4 tsp coriander

1 1/4 tsp CBP

2 1/2 tsp dried parley

1 1/4 tsp Thyme

1 tsp red pepper flakes

1 1/4 tsp sage

 

ground both sausuage through medium grind

 

Chicken Cordon Bleu - chicken "sausage", spicy brown / yellow mustard, swiss cheese, sliced and shredded, diced ham.

Florentine - Chicken Sausage, sliced chicken (I like to use a little bit of "lunch meat" chicken to help in case of blowouts, which are notorious, at least for me with ground chicken, Provolone and spinach.

Finished chicken fatties, just realized I didnt take any pics of the blueberry before or after... DOH.

Sealed and ready for their nap

Before they are sealed, I wrap them in wax paper and put a label with the contents and some reheating instruction, just in case I need a gift.

 

Thanks for lQQing

 They work great as gifts.  What do you get the Aunt, Uncle or Parent that has everything.  My family loves these and I usually do a couple of different kinds.  They pull it out of the freezer, remove a slice (since I pre-slice them) heat it up and instant meal....

I like your whole sealed/frozen fatty idea. I might have to try that so I have some on hand. Those look great.

I told my wife about the gift thing. She thinks it's a great idea too. How unique, and I've never had anybody taste one that didn't just love 'em. Thanks Brian

What a nice set of fatties! Thanks for such a great post - lot of good ideas here.  I really like the way you do the labels for the freezer, and pre-slicing. Thanks for those tips!  cheers!

 Thanks Barbe Queen, one more hint I should put out there.  Ink Jet printers are not a good idea if you use your computer to print labels.  The ink will run if there is any moisture present.  You could always make up a master set of labels and use a photocopier (laser type) if you dont have a laser printer.Luckily I have a very nice laser jet at work (I actually work for Hewlett Packard) that I can print out stuff on.

 

Thanks everyone for reading this thread.  I'm glad I am able to contribute just a little bit back to this community.

That blueberry pancake one sounds awesome.  They all look good though.  Any chance you could be persuaded to share the info for the pancake fatties?

 Unfortunately, I did not take picks this time around.  I do have a thread from awhile ago showing a blueberry pancake fatty.
