It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Fatty on a Mini

My first fatty on my mini. WOW is all I have to say. The combination of flavors was delicious. Just one question for others, I used a thicker cut bacon and it never got crispy. Has anyone else run into this problem?

    Time and temp of cook? Just by looks I'd have went longer but I don't know how hot you were. My bacon gets crispy ish on the outside.

    Ps. Nice weave!!

    250 for 3 hours. Inside temp was 167ish, that's why I pulled

    Seams fair! Yesterday I did 375-400 and feel like I have better results when I'm over 300 Took about 1.5 hour to get to 165• IT

    I'd get it a little hotter next time. That way you can cook at bacon before the inside gets done. Also thick bacon is the only way to go!

    Last one I did, I made my weave, threw the weave on a pan and cooked briefly in oven to jump start it. Let it cool then proceeded with filling and rolling. It worked to get the bacon more crisp.
