Makes1 Meat Log
Preparation Time30 min
Cooking Time1 hr 45 min
- 3 pounds ground pork sausage
- 1 package cream cheese
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 package American cheese slice
- 3 packages bacon
- 1 onion, diced
- 2 jalapenos, diced
- 1 cup Stubb’s Original Bar-B-Q Sauce
Dice one package of bacon and add to a medium-sized sauté pan over medium heat. Sauté bacon for 2-3 minutes, or until fully cooked. Remove bacon pieces from the pan, but keep fat.
Add jalapeño and onion to the bacon fat. Season with salt & pepper and sauté until softened. Once fully cooked, remove to a large bowl. Add cream cheese and shredded cheese, and stir until combined. Place a layer of plastic wrap on a cutting board, spoon mixture onto the plastic wrap, and form into a log. Roll the log in plastic wrap and place in the fridge to cool.
To start rolling the first layer of sausage, place another layer of plastic wrap on your cutting board. Spread about one third of your ground pork sausage into an even layer on the plastic wrap. Pull the cheese and sautéed mixture log filling out of the fridge and unwrap.
Place the filling in the center of the sausage layer. Using the plastic wrap for support, pull one end of the sausage up and over the filling. Continue to roll the sausage around the filling until it is completely covered and press the seams together to create a seamless sausage barrier around the filling. Roll the log in plastic wrap and set aside.
Start creating your second roll by placing another layer of plastic wrap on your cutting board. Spread the rest of your sausage into an even layer on the plastic wrap. Spoon a layer of Stubb’s Original Bar-B-Q Sauce all over the sausage. Sprinkle crispy bacon on top of the sauce, and then cover everything in a layer of American cheese.
Unwrap the previous sausage log and place it in the center of this new sausage/bacon/cheese roll. Using the same technique as last time, roll it up so the bottom layer completely engulfs the existing log. Press the seams to close up any gaps and wrap the whole thing in plastic and set aside.
