Looks great,nice star shape!:drool
Well, alcohol and fatties kind of go together, no?
JP61, looks good ,quite the design !
Thank you CrazyMoon!
Sorry, no play-by-play pics on this one.
This fatty isn't exactly what I envisioned in my mind's eye but, in the end I guess it still turned out okay. I was having doubts though, not long after I started Never done anything like this in the past and things not going as smoothly as I had hoped, kind of limited my picture taking.
Thanks for checking it out, hope you like it.
How have I been missing this one, that looks great ! Thumbs Up
I'm done for awhile with fatties. Hmmm... what's next?
JP61 that looks GREAT!! How did you manage to layer it so you got that fantastic star in the middle--really steals the show.
The pic of the whole finished fatty looks like a bacon wrapped Easter Egg--kinda neat.
Nice job. But I do think you should have thrown in on the smoker (ignore the weather), then you would have had that great smokey flavor.
I like to use plastic wrap when I roll a fatty--just twist the ends and spin it.
its like sausage sushi ...nice!
I'm guessing you baked scrambled eggs into a star shaped canape bread tube (for making fancy little sandwiches) with a long link of sausage in the middle. Then put a link down each internal corner, and wrapped that up in your stuff.
Points for presentation.
Thanks guys, it's appreciated!
Well, lol, very carefully and I still messed it up. As I mentioned in previous posts the end result wasn't what I had in mind. But I said I would post it no matter how it turns out. Honestly it would take me forever to type out all the step by step details and half of them would be wrong anyway. But, it basically involved a star shaped and round cookie cutters. If you look closely you'll see an inner ring of sausage. I cut those out first, then the eggs, followed by the center hole in the egg. They were all about 1" thick. Lots of back and forth between the fridge, freezer and assembly. The eggs were scrambled, then into a 1" deep pan from which they were cut from. The egg stars went inside of the sausage loops/disks then the freezer. I ended up stuffing the fried potatoes into the empty sections (outside of stars and the center), back in the freezer. Used egg wash between the individual assembled pieces/disks to try and "glue" them together, meanwhile rubbed the outside areas of the sausage disks in an attempt to make it a one piece cylinder shape rather than stacked disks. At some point for some reason I made a layer of sausage with more scrambled eggs, potatoes and cheese. Rolled that big mess into what you see. Wrapped it with the pig blanket and threw the damn thing in the oven. Meanwhile, it was 34° outside, thunder, lightning and heavy snow blowing sideways who knows how fast. I don't recommend this process! I now know there are better ways! lol Anyway, something like that.
Now you show up! Never heard of canape bread tubes before, wish I would've!
Thank you Don!
Not much went smoothly with this project
My printer ran out of ink and my PC reminded me of it every single time I turned it on, prior to printing "the book cover". Don't use the printer much, it still had the ink cartridges that came with it. Simple, go get the new ink that I purchased at the same time as the printer. I must have looked for them for over an hour. About the only place I didn't look was inside the walls and the attic. I call my son, twice, he don't answer the phone. Call his girlfriend asking about him and the ink, nothing. Five min. later he calls (guess he seen who was calling him when I called ). Anyway, when they moved into his house he mistakenly took them thinking it was for his printer. I hope no one went to Amazon to buy this "book", it doesn't exist and was meant to be a joke of some sort. Kind of surprised though, that it didn't generate a wisecrack or two. I'm just trying to have a laugh with whomever reads my posts. Guess I need to get a life.
Next one will go much smother!
btw.... it was a toss-up. Bake or scramble.... I took the familiar road.
By scrambled, I meant beaten or whipped.
They make those bread molds in quite a few shapes as well.
I understood what you meant and thanks for bringing them up.
I took a quick look at them and they're only 1/4" bigger than the star I used. The length seems about right, though the bottoms would have to get cut off, at least the ones I looked at. It sure would have made things easier. Maybe down the road I'll purchase a few, but for right now, I have reached my fatty limit.
Hey JP, that's a good looking fattie.
I still don't know how you pulled that off, even after
you explained it.
Dang, I'll bet that tasted as good as it looked.
Gotta do points for that just on creativity.
But it still took to long.
I didn't do a good job explaining. I think someone needs to explain it to me first.
Maybe someone that has seen this one, will come up with a better/easier way of making it.
I will probably give it another shot down the road with pictures.
It tasted like a breakfast fatty, nothing special, just looked a bit different. The dog really liked it and ate most of it
