Breakfast Fatty

In the bbq world everyone talks about fatty’s.  The Gist of it is a smoked log of sausage.  I did a quick take on it by stuffing the log of sausage with my favorite breakfast items.  It is hash browns, cheese and hard boiled eggs wrapped in sausage and bacon.

To start, placed a pound of breakfast sausage into a 1 gallon zip top bag and rolled it out flat.  The plastic bag makes the rolling easy. Plus it gives you a final size to shoot for.  Then you can cut the top off and you have a perfectly flat sausage patty.

Roll out the sausage

Then top the sausage with hash browns and hot sauce.

Add the potatoes

Next add a few hard boiled eggs.  A quick lesson on how to make perfect hard boiled eggs can be found here.

Top with the eggs

Next season with salt and pepper.  I used salt and Obie Cues Double Strength garlic pepper.  This seasoning is awesome.  You should try it.

I then topped it with habanero cheese.  If you can’t find this, standard cheddar works great.

Top with Cheese

Then I rolled the sausage up and formed a giant meat burrito.  Awesome, I know.

Roll into a beef wrapped burrito

Next weave 1 lb of bacon into a tight weave.  This step took me a bit.  I would also weave this on top of foil or parchment to help you roll it.  I did not do this and it was quite hard to do.  To make the weave lay out eight strips vertically on a piece of foil or plastic wrap. Then fold over every other vertical piece of bacon in the middle then place a strip horizontally across the vertical bacon. Then unfold the strips. Next fold back the alternate row of bacon that you previously left flat. Then place the next piece of bacon across the vertical strips directly adjacent to the first horizontal piece. Repeat two more times.  Once you finish the first half, repeat with the other half.

Bacon Weave

Top the bacon weave with a drizzle of maple syrup and then roll it around the meat burrito.

The perfect breakfast fatty

Setup your grill or smoker for offset cooking.  I cooked mine at 275 degree Fahrenheit.

Ready for offset cooking

Place on the grill and cook indirect for 1.5 – 2 hours or until the internal temperature is 165.

Place on the grill

Remove from the grill and let rest for 10 minutes.

Pure Awesomeness!!!

Slice and enjoy!

Ready to eat

How awesome are these slices.

  1. BBQPairadise on

    Great idea with the zip top. And that cheese rocks! I have a jalepeno/habenero cheddar I snacked on at Easter – love it!

  2. Rex, you've elevated this to a new level. I love the inclusion of hash browns (or home fries) and eggs!

    Great job, nice pics, and I bet it was freakin' delicious!

  3. That's one of the most complete fattys I have laid eyes on. Couldn't fit the french toast in there too, huh? ha ha

    • LOL. As I read that comment in my email, I said that sounds like Chris… and it was. You didn't let me down!

      It really looks like an amazing fatty, even without the French Toast. I'm all in for trying it.

  4. After seeing the picture of Rex's creation, my husband had to have one. Rex had it on the grill, waiting for our arrival, and let me tell you, it was "all that", and more! My mouth is watering just thinking about this decadent recipe. The bacon crisped beautifully on the outside, and all the ingredients on the inside melded together for one of the greatest taste sensations! The step by step instructions you've posted, make it seem like even a "failure cook" like me can whip up one of these. One question, since grilling season here in the north is cut short by the cold, can you make this in the oven? Thanks again Rex for this amazing treat, can't wait to make one myself!

      Liz –

      You can totally make this in the oven. Since you are not using a grill I would use a nice smoked bacon when making it. That way you can get the smokey flavor without using a grill. Glad you guys enjoyed it.
