After seein Lugnutz post on mashed potato and gravy fattie I was inspired to make my own for a mid day snack. I really needed to add more meat to the smoker like I needed a hole in my head, but what the heck. I needed lunch! So here it is.. My loaded baked potato fattie.
1 chub of Jimmy Dean maple breakfast sausage (the only ground meat I had available)
1 package of "Idaho Reds" mashed Loaded bake potato (minus 1/2 cup water for stiffness) I used about 2/3 of what the package yeilded.
2 chopped green onions straight out of the garden
About a cup or more shredded colby jack cheese
Other than a bit of salt in the tater water, I added no additional seasonings
Here it is ready for the roll up and bacon wrap.
All rolled up and heading to the freezer for 20 minutes
Pulling it out of the smoker at 165° internal. Used Hickory and Pecan for this smoke. The upper grate is about 280° AS you can see I really didnt need to add another piece to this smoke, but hey I needed lunch :)
The obligatory sliced pick. This by far was the BEST fattie I have ever done. Not sure where the maple flavor went out of the sausage, but the over all flavor of this was outstanding. It was also a real easy fattie to make. Thanks for checking out the Q.
