We have done a few Fattys now with the Southwestern influence and one with a Hawaiian twist. I have been thinking on doing another one but I wanted to be completely different than any we have done before.
For those of you that don’t know what a Fatty is let me explain. It is the ultimate meat loaf. But, instead of the ground beef that we are all used to, you use sausage and bacon. To add to this thought you stuff it with more bacon. The “Basic Fatty”.
So, we have taken this to the extreme and stuffed them with tons of cheese and mushrooms and olives, along with 2 pounds of bacon. For something different we thought “Pizza”. Everyone loves pizza and the fatty gives you the perfect building block.
Think the “Meat Lovers Pizza”. We took 3 pounds of hamburger, 2 pounds hot Italian, 2 pounds mild Italian and 2 pounds roasted red pepper and onion sausage with about 4 pounds of bacon for our building block.
Then, we stuffed this with all the cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms and black olives we could pile up without it falling off. All topped off with a good pizza sauce. Whew.
Rolled it up into a big log and did a basket weave with bacon to top it off. Hugely Awesome! It was like an inside out pizza with no crust….
