Recipe Tips and Variations:

Ground beef and sausage can be mixed together before forming the ground meat square to stuff.  We like the separate layers, either way will be delicious. 

Cheddar cheese, colby-jack or pepper jack are also great options for the cheese layer. Sliced cheese will work better than shredded. 

Sautéd mushrooms would also be great in the filling and any variety of peppers that you like. 

Store leftovers tightly wrapped in plastic wrap in the refrigerator up to 4 days. 

Reheat slices in a skillet over medium heat for about 3- 5 minutes on each side. 

Use a grill pan if you have wide grates on your grill or smoker to make it easier to remove from the grill.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups diced onions
  • 1 1/2 cups diced peppers (we used banana peppers and bell peppers)

  • 1 pound sausage (venison or pork)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 6 slices Swiss cheese
  • 7 slices thick sliced bacon

Instructions

  1. Add olive oil to a large skillet with onions and peppers. Cook over medium heat until vegetables are softened. Set aside to cool slightly.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Form ground beef into about a 12 inch square and set on parchment paper. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Create about a 10 inch square with sausage and layer onto center of ground beef.
  5. Top with cheese slices, covering sausage layer and out to the ends of the square.
  6. Spoon peppers and onion mixture over cheese.
  7. Using the sides of the parchment paper, bring the ground beef to meet in the center and press the seam together. Fold in the ends, forming a loaf.
  8. Weave bacon slices over the top of the loaf, tucking in the ends under the bottom.
  9. Prepare a grill fire or smoker to about 400°. The high heat will sear the bacon, creating a crunchy crust to the bbq fatty.

  11. Remove from grill or smoker and allow to rest 10 minutes before slicing.
