Migas fatty

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My first fatty attempt

Lessons learned --

Use 1.5 instead of 2 lbs of sausage
Don't use sage sausage, use something milder
Add a little more filling next time
Cheese is your friend
Will add some Rotel next time
Don't bother with the bacon weave, looks cool, but the flavor will be fine with just some bacon strips across and tucked in the end.

I sauteed some onions and garlic, then lightly scrambled some eggs. I rolled out the two pounds in the bag (very smart idea),
I then cut the bag open, laid in the onions, eggs, cheese and some crushed tortilla chips.


and rolled it like a sushi roll. I tucked in the ends, then did the bacon weave.



I smoked it to 161, at 225, took about 5 hours, but should have only taken 4, let the heat drop too long...

This was the result:


I had to roll it in the smoking since I had put it in upside down when I put it in the dark ... icon_frown.gif


Tasted pretty good, would adjust to my lessons learned above, I'll definitely make another one...

Looks great for a first try. Congratulations!!
I use a lot of the Rondel/Boursin style herbed cream cheese in mine and it always tastes great. Not as much fat and oils as regular grated cheese.

Beautiful job!PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif
I use the weave on ground beef (helps hold together better) & skip it for sausage. my 2cts.

Ooooh...thanks Grothe...forgot to mention, if you do turkey or chicken, the weave helps hold that together much better. They're much harder to keep together!
