Freezing uncooked fatties
« on: October 04, 2018, 06:22:01 PM »
Has anyone prepped fatties a week or so in advance?  I need to take some to a party but donít have time to prep them that day or days before.  Was tempted to make them a week or two in advance and freeze them.  Just curious on your thoughts / experiences.  Let me know!

I haven't stored them raw but when I make them, I typically make 4-6 and freeze them after cooking.  I keep some whole and vacuum seal them.  The ones I make for myself, I slice and put patty papers in between the slices and store in a ziploc in the freezer.  The slices come out great in the microwave and I reheat the whole fatties in the oven and slice per person.

If you're taking them to a party, I would go the whole fatty route.  Otherwise, you get a bottleneck at the microwave.

I never thought about cooking them then freezing them.  Iím probably going to go this route.  Thanks!

This is really the only way I do them now.  I don't want to wake up that early to start.

Here's some I did last summer for work.  Made the week ahead and frozen, thawed overnight in the fridge, and reheated at work in a heat treat oven.  Two are bacon, egg, and cheese and one is smoked sausage, wrapped in breakfast sausage, with a layer of finely chopped and slightly crisped hot links with more sausage wrapped around that, and finally a bacon weave.

cook and freeze would be best.
