So there I was, looking over one of my favorite blogs:  ( and she had made a breakfast fatty. Basically a fillling, wrapped in sausage, wrapped in bacon. I’m not sure I can think of many things better.

Breakfast Fatty

Red Bell pepper
Green chillies
1 lb of bacon
1 lb of breakfast sausage


  1. Diced potatoes, onions, red bell pepper and green chillies.
  2. Give them a quick saute.

  4. Let potato /pepper mixture rest for 10 minutes, then place into a gallon zipper bag, formed into a log and into the fridge to set up.

  6. Open a one pound package of breakfast sausage and put into a 1 gallon zipper bag. Roll it out thin. Then roll it up and put into the fridge.

  8. Make the bacon weave. A bacon weave it not a new or novel idea, but I have never done on, so it is new to me! One pound of bacon woven on cling wrap. – Hint* – if you sprinkle water on your work surface the cling wrap will stick to that and you can build your weave on a nice clean surface and not gunk up your counter or cutting board.

    The weave is easy to do.

  10. This is also rolled up and put in the fridge while the potato filling sets up.
  11. After a few hours we are ready to assemble the fatty.

  12. Slice open the sides of the sausage baggie and open it up.

  14. Place the potato filling on the sausage – use the bag to help roll it up and then shape to fit on the bacon weave.

  16. Place the sausage log on the weave and roll it up, wrap in cling wrap, put into big zipper bag and put it back into the fridge.

I’ll smoke this tonight.
Anyone getting hungry? And how good would this be with homemade bacon and sausage?

Time to get it on the grill. In lieu of a real smoker we will have to make do, onto the grill with the little smoker box.
At one hour
At two hours
Three hours, looking good!

I finished it in the oven to 160F internal.


This is pretty spectacular and could easily be adapted to all kinds of fillings.

I also think these would freeze very nicely, so make a bunch, and be happy!

Until next time Eat Well & Keep Digging!
