A Breakfast Fatty

I started making the fatty by frying some cubed potatoes, onions and garlic in butter, then added shredded cheese....







I used my fatty piston again...

Stuffed the piston with the cooled filling, wrapped in plactic wrap and let it chill for awhile....









The fried potato/onion/garlic/cheese filling on the rolled out spicy sausage.....



Wrapped the fatty in a bacon weave.....




Into my drum smoker at 290 degrees until the bacon was kinda crispy....how I like it. :)








I placed slices of the stuffed fatty on toasted english muffin rounds....




Then topped them with eggs (sunny side up) and hollandaise sauce.....










It was kinda tasty! :)

Hey Cowgirl,

Are you using inch and a half PVC. I tried with 2" and it didn't seem quite right.

Thanks

Chez said...

VERY nice work ... cowgirl, you sure you ain't a CIA grad? my mama din't make breakfast like that when i was a lil' peeshwank growin' up down on the farm, ah garrontee!

cowgirl said...

:) Gene, Thanks! Hope you are having fun with that new baler!

cowgirl said...

Hi Wayne!
The larger piece of pvc has a 2" inside diameter and is 8" long. 6 inches would work fine.
I roll the hot sausage out inside of a gallon baggie... they are 10 1/2 inches wide, so it all depends on how much stuffing you want in the fatty.

I fill the tube to about 2 nches from the top.

Hope that helps! :)

Your blog always makes me hungry! :)

Kinda tastey? Looks more like "seriously" tastey to me. My kind of breakfast.

cowgirl said...

Thanks Mark! :)
I liked the potatoes and onions in the center of the fatty. Kind of an all in one breakfast. lol

Hope the weather is cooperating with you! :)

Awesome looking fatty. It was a work of art before it hit the smoker.

I loved your plating photos.

As for a new fatty filling, how about diced apples and ham or ham and pineapple?

Love your posts!

Looks great - as usual. I like the extra time put in to make the sauce

cowgirl said...

Thank you RaceyB!
I like an apple/kraut filling sometimes. :) Adds a bit of a kick!

cowgirl said...

Hey Big Dude! Doesn't that hollandaise add a lot of flavor? It takes awhile to make but it's worth it.

Thanks! :)

What a great dish- I am a huge fan of stuffing pork especially when you stuff pork with ..well mor pork! Thanks for the post - makes my jalepeno & chedder bacon wrapped hotdogs seem lame

cowgirl said...

Thank you KAHUNA!

Thanks for stopping by. :)

Ok...we're recent vegans of 12 years (him) and 32 years (me). We've added raw dairy and organic free range chicken as we're starting the GAPS diet for ourselves and our children. The reason I'm sharing is I've never had cow or pig as well..it looks unappetizing. Just a big lump of brown. But, this fatty thing....it actually looks good!

Your pictures are making me want to try meat! And, seriously...you need to add artist around here somewhere...cause anyone who would make slabs of flesh pretty needs that! :)

Dude...you wove bacon!!!! That's funny, pretty, and looked tasty! ;)

cowgirl said...

lol Honey that is quite a compliment!! Thank you!! :)
I'm glad you found that the fattie looked tasty.
Thanks so much for stopping by, it's nice to meet you! :)

Unknown said...

Incredible idea! I think I love you. Is that OK?
What I can't do is the bacon weave. I tried it on meatloaf before and failed. How do you do it? Well, how do you get it started?
I'm giddy with excitement. I can hardly wait to make one!!

Thank you

cowgirl said...

lol Mr Tito, Thanks! I see that you found the weave post. Good luck with it! :)

William Ping said...

Love your site and all the neat things you do....
Making your fatty press as I type.
One question:
Do you ever make fatties ahead of time and freeze them.

cowgirl said...

Thank you William! I appreciate you stopping by.
I have made them in advance, smoked them, then cooled, wrapped and placed in the freezer til needed.
I had the best luck letting them thaw in the fridge overnight, then heating in the oven (thawed).
Hope this helps.
Also hope the piston works out well for you!
Thanks again! :)
