    I am planning on doing my first fattie this weekend. I want to do a breakfast fattie with scrambled eggs, cheese and green peppers. If I use a pound of sausage, How many eggs should I scramble to fill it? Also do you put the therm. probe into the middle or do you try to get it just into the sausage? Thanks!!

    I honestly don't know how many eggs because I never make just one fatty [​IMG] I try to get the probe close to the center but still in the meat but of course thats hard to judge

    It really depends on how "fat" you want it. Anywhere from 2 to 4 eggs.

    I insert my probe on the end, and try and get the tip as near the center as possible.

    Good luck, I am sure you are going to be as addicted as the rest of us [​IMG]

    I would say 3 for a 1 pounder. I whisk mine with a little milk to make them fluffier.

    I'm with the dude on this one about 3 maybe 4 if you want it really full. I would put them in a bowl with some milk and whick them for the fluffies. then do as you will with the rest. Don't foget the Qview.

    Here's a decent one to look at that I did that had 3 eggs in it. There's a nice little rolling tutorial if you need help with that part.

    I usually don't probe my fatties (but I did in the one posted above). I just make sure that I'm 250 or so at grate temp and go for about 3 hours.

    No worries. Happy to help when I can. Now just be sure to take some pictures and show us how it all turned out.

    Try a little cream cheese in those scrambled eggs. About a teaspoon per egg. Shweeeet!
