  • I'd like it better if you were wearing a kilt. :ar!
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.
  • I saw a bottle of Julio's seasoning! I love that stuff. I haven't had Julio's in at least 8 years.. What I would do for a bag of Julio's chips right now. The msg makes it better.
  • Sounds and looks delicious!

  • My avi is something similar. Always a big hit. I'm a bit simpler with just cream cheese/shredded cheese and diced jalapeño.
    Boom

  • Looks good, will have to try this, thanks for sharing. 
    At first glance I thought you used a running knot to tie it up, but when I look closer, it looks like you tied each piece of bacon separately and one piece end to end, is that right?

    Yes, wished I could do a running knot. Would you be interested in putting together something (with lots of pictures please).

  • Man those look awesome. I'm going to send you some meat glue next time I order some. You'll never go back to tying knots again.

    I ate at a restaurant this week that had a hyper thin layer of prosciutto meat glued to an oak grilled duck breast................man was it good. I think you'll like playig with it. I wish it was called something else though

    No, it'd be better if he had an eyepatch on.  Looks great, Mickey. I just saw that same meat tenderizer for the first time on an old episod of Good Eats yesterday. :ar!

  • I was wom Ndering if you could give a little more info on the stuffing? It looks like something wet holding it together. Is it cream cheese? It looks really good I am going to try it tonight sans japs. I love em but the family doesn't.

    Hangfire I used equil  amounts goat cheese and packaged shredded cheddar/montery jack mix cheese. I did used liquid from the bottle of the candied jalapenos for moisture. Also used some rub as pictured above. Got to say that goat cheese is your friend.....

    Hangfire77 I just had an idea for you. Why not fry up and crumble some bacon and mix in the cheese mix instead of the jalapenos......

    Please send us how it turned out and send pics...

  • Mickey, Thanks for the info,the cook was pushed back to Thursday. I will let you guys know how it turns out with info on the cook and pics.
  • I did the cook tonight. I did chicken beat out with a feta sundried tomatoes and basil. I then wrapped it in prosciutto and tied it off. It came out very good. My wife thought it was a little dry but I think it was the prosciutto. It was a great combo of taste. The reason I didn't use bacon was because I did stuffed mashed potatoes with bacon it them. Meal was very good I even had my sous chef helping out. Lol

    Hangfire77 Good looking sous chef. Nice cook. My suggestion is you might have cooked just a little to long. One other item: you can't get to much bacon :@) What part of the country are you in?

    Great looking cook, I think the bacon would be OK, might even go with the taters better, always nice to have a common thread. Love the sous chef, if anything like mine, prays for egg mistakes, means we eat out and the sous chef eats in, in style!

  • @doc yes it was very good definite do again. I will try bacon next time just to see what the taste would be like. @skiddymarker , yeah he is my buddy during cooks, always keeps me on my toes not to drop anything. He always get a taste test to make sure it's ok for us to eat. :-)
