    I decided to try my first fatty and couldn't help myself so I made three!
    1.5 lbs of bulk Bratwurst
    1 handfull of babyspinach leaves
    1 green onion sliced thin
    fresh mushrooms chopped fine
    1/2 cup hi-temp mozzeralla cheese diced (in 2 of the fatties)
    1/2 cups worth smoky swiss-n-cheddar chunks (in the other 1)

    I tried something similar to the ziploc method to spread the sausage.
    I used a wide shallow meat containercovered with plastic wrap. This gave me a lip to flatten the meat to,and saved me the step of cutting the plastic bag. Next layer the spinach, green onion, mushrooms,& cheese on top. Voila!!

    Now use the plastic wrap to roll the meat. Then fold in an seal the ends.On a new sheet of p.wrap make your bacon weave.

    Those look great. What's the tub of meat in the background? Looks like a resturant kitchen. Maybe?

    Duh, Guess I should've figure that out from your name. As a butcher, your input is going to be most welcome around here. And I think I speak for most everyone when I say how jealous we are that we don't access to the choices that you do. Very cool.

    ok, so since I couldn't smoke my fatties yesterday,(t-storm). I was telling the people at work they would have to wait another day to try them...practically a mutiny on my hands! I agreed to make 4 more.these were ground chuck with bacon burger seasoning,garlic powder, & ketchup,wrapped around chopped mushrooms ,green onion,&hi-temp mozzerella cheese. Oh, and wrapped in bacon...of course.
    check out the view of the finished product.
