Fried Potato and Smoked Ham Fattie on the Hasty Bake

I know I make these a lot.. this is my absolute favorite filling. :)
I wanted to see how the Hasty Bake Gourmet would handle the job.

I made some sausage, rolled it out inside of a one gallon baggie. ( I used about 1 1/2lbs of sausage for this)



fried some potatoes, minced onions, smoked ham, jalapeno, cheese and seasonings for my filling..



filled my fattie piston...



let the filling chill in the fridge a bit to cool off...



cut the baggie open, topped with the chilled stuffing, then used the plastic baggie to help roll the fattie..





made my bacon weave...





sprinkled with cracked black pepper and placed it on the top shelf of the Hasty Bake with a drip pan underneath..





I started with the hot coal rack lowered to the "bake" level then raised the rack towards the end of the cook to crisp the bacon..





The bacon came out just perfect.... I was very pleased with the results...





I layered a slice on top of a toasted english muffin...



then topped with eggs easy over and drizzled with hollandaise sauce....



I loved it. :)



The Hasty Bake passed my fattie test with flying colors. :)

Th bacon does look perfect! The piston is a great idea. Looks way better than what I am having for breakfast!

cowgirl said...

Thank you David! I would have shared with you if you lived closer..I had enough left for sandwiches the next day. :)

If that were art, I would call it a masterpiece Jeanie. I guess one could say it is an art. Pretty tastey looking Jeanie.

cowgirl said...

:) Thank you Mark! It tasted pretty good. :)

I am very impressed with the bacon crosshatch, way more eye catching than the plain over the top roll. Great looking breakfast!

cowgirl said...

Tango Joe, Thank you! :)
I've always made my fatties with the cross weave. They look "prettier" to me.. if food can be called "pretty" lol.
Hope you are having a great weekend, I appreciate you stopping by. :)

Cowgirl, I think we're twin siblings from different parents! Love your Blog!

cowgirl said...

lol Rufusbob, we might be! Thanks! :)

Mamie Squires said...

Love your blog! Can't wait to try some of these! The bacon wrapped stuff is my favorite... My first blog was a cowboy meatloaf wrapped in bacon, so I think we're both on the same page!

cowgirl said...

Thanks Mamie, It's nice to meet you. Your meatloaf sounds delicious! It does sound like we might be related. lol
Thanks for stopping by!

Bill Maloy said...

Looks great!!! What temp did you cook at and about how long?

cowgirl said...

Thanks Bill! They don't benefit from low and slow so I bump the heat up to 325F when possible and bring the internal temp up to 165F. Sometimes they take close to 4 hours depending on the cooker I use.
When smoking them at a lower heat I like to bump the heat up at the end to crisp the bacon. I really love crisp bacon. :)
Good luck and thanks for stopping by! :)

Kimberly Gocela said...

Can this be made in an oven?

cowgirl said...

Yes Kimberly, I'd bake it at 350F to an internal temp of 165 and if the bacon needs crisped, put it under the broiler. I really love crisp bacon. :)
Thanks for stopping by!

Dear Cowgirl,

You have inspired me to catapult our family breakfast more than a notch... more like a stratosphere. I know this will bring tears of joy to my husband and 4 sons... seriously. I can't wait for a special day to try it. Maybe tomorrow. I found your blog while looking for homemade Canadian Bacon instructions-- to stock quick healthy breakfast LOL.... Surprise, Surprise your Fatty looks superbly more delicious than my now lame (idea). Thank You

cowgirl said...

lol Thanks Louise! :)
I hope you give this one a try. They can be baked in the oven too.
Probably not the healthiest thing to eat but once in awhile ya gotta splurge. :)
Thanks for stopping by my blog, it's nice to meet you!
