Fat Tuesday is ... well ... on Tuesday and I felt like cooking some jambalaya because it was really cold today.  So I thought, why not make a jambalaya fatty?!

Of course it has the bacon weave, a pound of Jimmy Dean hot sausage, and cheese.  I actually decided to go with mozzarella cheese to allow the jambalaya flavor to come through.

Lots of prep for this fatty...I mean a lot!
  • about 1/2 cup of instant rice (makes a cup when cooked) with onions, red peppers, and celery.  I also put the Cajun seasoning in the water to give the rice that true jambalaya flavor.  It looked like dirty rice when done and tasted like - well - jambalaya.
  • 4-6 oz. of extra small shrimp, pre-cooked, deveined and peeled.  Cooked them again anyway because they still made a ton of liquid.  Don't want that inside of my fatty.  I also added more Cajun seasoning to this as well.
  • I used about 4-6 oz. of diced chicken breast
  • 1 link of Aidelle's andouille sausage diced
  • 1/2 Roma tomato...seeds removed, diced
Here is everything prior to assembly:


Time to assemble this puppy...


Heading to the smoker...smoker temp varied between 255F and 275F


Internal temp of 165F in 1 hour 50 minutes ... done!


Oh my...was it ever good.  Will do this again for sure!


This made 7 servings maybe 1.25-inches wide.  357 calories per slice!  

(My wife makes me calculate the calories - always!)

My actual jambalaya recipe follows if interested.  It will give you the seasonings you need.

Uncle Eddie's Jambalaya

Makes 12 servings at 235 calories/serving (without rice or quinoa)

1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into 1 inch cubes

1 pound andouille sausage, sliced

1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes with juice

1 large onion, chopped

1 large green bell pepper, chopped

1 cup chopped celery

1 cup chicken broth 

2 teaspoons dried oregano

2 teaspoons dried parsley

2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

1 pound frozen cooked shrimp without tails 

Directions
  1. In a slow cooker, mix the chicken, sausage, tomatoes with juice, onion, green bell pepper, celery, and broth. Season with oregano, parsley, Cajun seasoning, cayenne pepper, and thyme.
  2. Cover, and cook 7 to 8 hours on Low, or 3 to 4 hours on high. Stir in the shrimp during the last 30 minutes of cook time.
  • I like to make the rice separate and 
    • Serve over rice or
    • as chunky soup.
  • If too thin, consider adding some rice or quinoa to the broth about 30 minutes before being done
 
Now that is one awesome looking fatty! 

(PS, never ever even think about, much less post the calorie count - it is a violation of the Amalgamated Sausage Smokers Local 33 Union rules, and you never want to run afoul of the A.S.S. local 33....).
 
That fattie looks fantastic!

A point worthy smoke for sure!

Congrats on making the carousel!

Looks great!

Those containers you have the ingredients separated into we get from a Chinese food place that delivers. I save them for the same thing or for freezing soft foods that I vac pac after freezing. Just pop the frozen food out of them and vac pack.

Point for a tasty fatty!
 
UE, Nice job on a creative fatty!

Looks great! Fine job.

A jambalaya fattie won our third annual fattie contest last August. It beat out some tough competition with 20 fatties entered total.
