My First Fatties!!!! With Qview!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Unfortunately, I won't even know for sure how they turned out (taste-wise) until tomorrow morning, as I did them for a Church Brotherhood breakfast!

#1 is made from Jimmy Dean Mild Breakfast sausage, stuffed with Pepperjack cheese, diced Aneheim pepper, hash browns, and bacon (forgot to add the caramelized onions until I had it rolled...oooops). Wrapped the whole thing in bacon (was difficult - wife picked up ends and pieces!!!).

#2 is made from Petit Jean Country Sausage (an Arkansas brand of primarily port products - best ham in the world!!!), stuffed with cheddar cheese, Anaheim pepper, caramelized onions (remembered them for this one!), hash browns, and bacon.

Getting them rolled was a bigger challenge than I expected. I think my sausage got a bit too close to room temperature while I was working with it (came straight in from the grocery to the counter, to the ziplocs, to rolling, to stuffing, etc...

#1 sprung a few leaks, #2 did a bit better.

Fatties looked great Battman. Some advice would be to chill the sausage before you press it out and attempt to roll it. I usually press mine out in gallon zipploc bags and throw thew=m in the freezer for about 25-30 minutes and they hold up great.
Hope you let us know how well they turned out, if you are lucky enough to even get a slice. Those lucky people...pure fattie bliss...

Yeah, not sure if the thread is still here, but search Fatties - there is a wonderful tutorial with lots of pics on how to roll 'em. There are some tricks and they work! Check out the bacon weave - OMGosh - very cool.

Looks fine though - once people taste your creation, they will not be critiquing it's technical merit.

Looks great. After you've done a couple, it becomes easier.

Well - they turned out real good!

This is the third time I have tried to introduce the guys to something "new"...

First time, it was fried plantains ( I love them)... luke-warm reception.

Second time - homemade deer breakfast sausage ... slightly warmer reception.

But I think the Fatties went over super! Wound up being only 7 guys there - but they ate 80% of one and a little over half of the other (wan't based on preference, was more based on order they were cut).

I'm munching on leftovers as I type this. Really good. I think I like the one with pepperjack cheese better - but think it would have been even more awesome with the caramelized onions!!!

I noticed the sticky with suggestions.... after they were on the smoker! Will definitely chill the ziplocs with the sausage in them for a while before working it again.

I really liked out the potatoes turned out!

Here is a slice-view:

Almost forgot - wife tried it when I got home... and she liked it (and she isn't generally all that big on eating a lot of meat)!

looking great, bat -

how did it go with re-heating them? did you do it in an oven?

i'd be interested in hearing about this because i figure it would be good to make one some night for a breakfast or maybe bring one in for an office party.

good job battman - gotta love fatties

wtg with trying to introduce the guys to new stuff

i dont know how you did your plantains but we usually fry ours like(they look like banana chips) and we season them heavy with cajun seasoning...

The main serving, I reheated them in an oven in the foil. They came out just fine.

At home, I just cut off some and microwaved... worked ok.
