    These aren't really fatties, but I figured I'd put it up under this category.

    I took some Bob Evans hot sausage and made a meatball stuffed with colby jack cube & roasted Pasilla Bajio pepper.  This was the first one & I tried to wrap the meat around it.  After I made this one, I realized it was much easier to make two small balls of sausage.  Then flatten into pancakes, put the stuffing in the center, then flatten the two together(much like a juicy lucy if you know what that is), finally rounding them out into an orb.

    All done!  This was how many I was able to make out of a 1 lb tube of sausage.  I suppose I could have made the meat portion thinner, but I was worried about the filling oozing out.

    Bacon wrapped.

    After about 2 hours of unintentional cold smoking.

    I threw them on the grill to finish them off, and I kept them in the oven to stay warm while the rest of the food cooked.  As a result, they were a little over-done, but still pretty tasty.

    Those look mighty tasty. I have done them without the bacon several times for meatballs in some pasta or meatball sandwiches. They turn out awesome
