Well Fed with Ed! Not only is he cute but he can cook!
Why is it, that when dudes can cook they are so much cuter!? Each weekend Eddie is either grilling, smoking or frying something! This past weekend he put together this meat log that was to die for! I am definitely staying well fed with Ed!
Each week I will be sharing with you what Eddie has been cookin' and how he makes it! This little project is actually originally called the Tulsa Torpedo but Eddie put his own little spin on it!
The Ingredients; 2 pounds of ground hamburger or ground sausage, your choice of hotdogs or sausages, 16-20 slices of bacon (depending on size), 16-20 slices of your choice of cheese (depending on how cheesy you want your log), cream cheese (flavored or not, we chose chive flavored), salt, pepper, garlic powder to flavor.
Assembly; On a large sheet of wax paper or tinfoil lay out your bacon to create a lattice wrap (see photo) and set aside, cut hotdog lengthwise and set aside. In a large bowl combine ground hamburger with salt, pepper and garlic powder to flavor. Smash and roll out hamburger onto a medium sized cookie sheet. Layer your cheese to cover your hamburger to your cheesy preference and then spread the cream cheese, also to your cheesy preference. Then, lay 3 hotdogs a few inches apart and roll your log into a big roll and pinch the ends nice and tight to keep that cheesy deliciousness trapped inside while it cooks! Then, transfer your meat log to your lattice and neatly roll your log inside your lattice making sure to cover ever inch of your meat log! Then throw that baby on the grill and let it torture you for 2 1/2 hours at 325 degrees. Let it rest for 30 minutes, then slice it and enjoy!!
