First Fattie - Mushroom/onion/spinach/gruyere w/ QView...

HOLY COW these things are AWESOME!

 

I decided to make two of these with mushroom, onion, spinach and gruyere. I sauteed up the onion until translucent, added the mushroom until they started shrinking, added the spinach to heat and incorporate, all that in about a stick of butter. Then tossed it in the fridge to cool while I finished the rest of my prep. 

 

Freshly grated some gruyere, rolled out my sausage in a gallon zip-lock using the method in the sticky. Got that rolled up into some nice logs and proceeded on the bacon weave.

 

The bacon was the Costco stuff that comes in 4# packages, and it was nice thick-cut bacon of mostly uniform rectangular shape. Thus, I was able to make a pretty nice weave for a first-timer, I think. I shudder to think what this would have looked like if I had lesser bacon!

 

Wrapped the weave on the logs, into the fridge overnight, and into the smoker in the morning.

 

When I pulled these out on Saturday while I had all my buddies over watching football, let me just say that some jaws hit the floor. 

 

Only things I'd change for next time:

1) I had them in the smoker with some brisket, so I was just below 250. I'd get it hotter next time to get the bacon more crisp.

2) I'd probably use more cheese.

 

But either way, this was pretty ridiculous. I will do these again!

That looks delisious.  How much cheese did you add to each?

That's actually an excellent question, and I'm not sure. My wife did the shopping and I was so wrapped up in trying to prep this along with all the other things I was going to cook for a party that I didn't even read the package.

 

I'm guessing only 3-4 ounces each...

Wow! I am always amazed at these things - the pretty spiral cuts and all! Well done! Cheers! - Leah
