Looks great to me, turn your back and it would be gone with me around. I also use a 1# chub and a 1 gallon freezer bag, the norm for fatties. PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

I will weight the sausage next time to make sure I have a pound. Cannot complain. When it comes to cooking I am a bit of a perfectionist.

I have made a few fatties but only one w/ itallian sausage. Reason : The fennel seed in the sausage overpowered everything else and all i could taste was the sausage. Try using Jimmy dean bulk sausage and just add a few fennel seeds to a lb of that and see if its not better.

Wow,

Haven't been through that area in a long time.

Born in Richlandtown, we used to go through Freemansburg, and through Butztown to get to Rt 33 every time we went up to Pike County, to my Brother's cabin.

That was before they connected Rt 33 to I-78.

Thanks!

I agree with everyone else looks good

They look great but I can see your concern here.  That sausage layer is very thick. Take a lb of sausage and roll it out in a gallon ziplock and you'll have the perfect thickness.

Yup. That's the concern exactly. Sausage overpowered everything.

Being the fattie goddess that I am ROTF.gif I think it looks great! I also wilt my spinach down to get more inside. Great job on the weave too!

Squirrel,

 

I'm betting you have to put your spinach in a pan to wilt it.

 

I know a couple of women who can wilt spinach, just by walking by it!   roflmao.gif

I was pretty happy with the weave! Easier than I thought. Yes, wilting spinach would have been more effective. THANKS!
