After seeing some of the recipes here, I decided to try my own fatty. Started by cooking some small dice potatoes, onion, green pepper, and some jalapenos until softened. Added some Tony Chacheres and some grated cheese. Rolled that up in some plastic wrap to make a log, and then rolled it inside the Jimmy Dean's mild sausage:
The bacon weave was next. It looked a lot like making a lattice for the top of a pie, and it worked great. These photos should help if you've never done this. Start by laying out seven or eight strips of bacon vertically in front of you:
Fold back every other strip to half. Lay one strip horizontally across the others.
Unfold the strips, and fold down the other strips that haven't yet been folded. Add another horizontal strip.
Continue this alternating method until finished on the top half, and then do the bottom half the same way.IMG_0016.jpg
Here's the fatty rolled up in the bacon weave:IMG_0020.jpg
And sliced. Yum!
Forgot to add that it cooked at 275-300 for about and hour and a half. A lot of great info here on this forum. Let's all keep the sharing going and have some great eats!
