Gouda & Jalapeno Stuffed Tater Bombs

Recommended Posts

For the "Let's Take Sides Challenge! " I decided to try  Gouda and Jalapeno stuffed tater bombs  to go with a maple/sriracha glazed ham.

 

Most of the ingredients.

I used an apple corer to make a hole completely through the potatoes  and stuffed them with jalapenos stuffed with Gouda cheese and wrapped the spuds in bacon.  ( Some of the smaller yukon golds I stuffed with a dragon cayenne pepper inside the jalapenos but they were scarfed down before I could get a photo.)  Added some olive oil, salt and pepper and wrapped them in foil.   While the ham was getting pretty on ole smokey  I put the tater bombs on Jr.  at 325-350 for around 40 mins.

I hate to waste the residual cool down heat of ole smokey so I put a couple of the large tater bombs on her after the ham was done.

I love new presentations of one bite appetizers..  Oh, wait you're not from Texas.  Those look great, I'm just imagining other things to stuff in there and, yes, wrap in bacon.  I really like the apple corer to open up some ideas with potatoes.

Thank you,  seems like the possibilities of ingredients are endless.  I would recommend a heavy duty apple corer if you are going to use the large baking potatoes, they will wreck a cheap one.

      After see posts on this site, watching countless YouTube videos and hours upon hours of nervous research I decided to buy a pork belly and give bacon a try on my Big Joe. Like others have commented I found the pink salt was not as easy to find as I assumed, so I bought some off Amazon. I bought a 10-lb pork belly from Costco, found an easy recipe on line and started my adventure! I followed the recipe below as a template:
       
      https://www.garlicandzest.com/homemade-applewood-smoked-bacon/
       
      I used dark brown sugar because that's what I had and I used pure Vermont Maple Syrup instead of honey. I used cayenne pepper on half of the belly and none on the other just because I forgot to put it in my first batch of the curing paste.
       
      I had to cut the pork belly in half because I was using 1-gallon ziploc bags and this resulted in two different flavors to my bacon. The first one without the cayenne pepper finished curing in 9 days. Based on the hours of research I guessed at it being done because it was pretty stiff compared to when it first started. The second bag with the cayenne pepper leaked much of the liquid and didn't seem ready. So when I removed the first belly I drained the second bag, made another batch of the curing paste and started the process again.
       
      The first batch of bacon I rinsed thoroughly, dried with paper towels and placed on a drying rack in the fridge for a day unwrapped and uncovered. The next day I smoked it for about 3 hours keeping the temperature between 200-240 and cooking until the internal temp was 150. I used 2 small chunks of apple wood for the smoke.
       
      Since I don't have a meat slicer I was "forced" to buy a Dalstrong Gladiator Series Ham Knife which was heavily recommended throughout this site. I did my best to keep the strips as thin as possible and even.
       
      The family loved the bacon and I was happy with the result as well. Now the second half of the pork belly finished up about 4 days later and I followed the same smoking process except I add 2 chunks of cherry wood and 2 chunks of apple wood. I didn't think the first round of bacon was smoky enough so I doubled the amount of wood.
       
      This was noticeably better than the first round! I tasted smoke this time and it wasn't overpowering. The flavors of this bacon were much more pronounced that the first round and while I know the added wood made a difference, I wonder if re-doing the curing process half the way through made any difference. 
       
      Regardless, I enjoyed the whole preparation and cooking of the bacon and will do this from now on! It wasn't nearly as difficult as I had thought and though the second batch was better both were fantastic! As good or better than anything I've ever bought from the store. My family all claim it's better than anything we've ever bought, but I guess I'm a little more critical of my cooking than they are.

      So it's family Christmas at my brothers this year which means interstate for two families.  I asked my brother what we could bring to help contribute and i was told nothing.  It's all sorted.  But i just couldn't turn up empty handed.  
       
      I think I'm taking the perfect thing.... home made bacon!
       
      Picked up a pork belly, wet brined for 4 days in a solution of salt pepper, molasses, sugar and water. 
       
      Hot smoked on the KJ for approx 2hrs (150f internal temp).
       
      Should feed the whole family breakfast for the time we're there :-)

      The Guru Moderators Challenged me to create a “Weave Your Way Through May”. I thought long and hard at what I could create.

      Create something delicious by weaving ingredients together? At first, I thought

      I kept thinking and then came to the “point” where an idea “stuck” with me.

      If I had the correct ingredients

      then

       
      I studied up on my past cooks and if you will
       

       I’ll provide you with a little educational reading and show you

       
      I assembled most of my ingredients

      Greased up my CI pie pan with some Crisco.

      Did my crust weave in it

      but it looked a bit

      (Not my best work. I should’ve done this on the glass pie dish like last time but since the crust won’t show this was no biggy)
      Now I placed the glass dish in the CI dish to try to control shrinkage and keep its shape.

      Now place it upside down on the kamado to let the bacon grease drain. I let it cook this way for 30 minutes.

      While that was cooking I whipped up the egg, milk, sour cream and Bisquick

      Once the bacon crust was cooled I placed in a layer of thinly sliced potato.

      Now some slivered onion

      and then the Hatch Chiles.

      Now I added half the egg mixture and 1 cup of cheese.

      I repeated this process and placed it on the kamado for 50 minutes at 300 degrees.

      Here it is after 50 minutes.

      I thought we could clink our glasses in a toast but alas it still wasn’t alive like I wanted

      so I threw a little temper tantrum.

       
      It needed one last ingredient

      So I added a bacon weave on top of mostly already cooked bacon and cooked it an extra 10 minutes. (Didn’t want to deal with the shrinkage or the extra grease)

      and in a last desperate attempt, I yelled out

      Here it is after the additional 10 minutes.

      IT’S ALIIIIIIIVE!!!!!!!!!
       

      Close-up with flash.

      Without flash.

      Today I cut a slice and heated it up for breakfast.

      It was so delicious it had me dancing!

       
      THE END!

      My wife found some boneless spareribs on sale at our local supermarket.  I had some thick cut bacon that need to be cooked. So here is their beautiful marriage. Rubbed with Jake's grillin' coffee rub, cooked over indirect heat at 250°. Pulled when internal temp of 155° was reached(first time checking). Also cooked some bacon that was awesome as well. Here's some pics! The sparerib in the front was on the back of the grill, still great though.
