Looking back, it seems that I always knew how to roll a fatty. When my oldest son was in high school and talking about going to college, I knew it was time for him to learn. Fast forward a few years and he is now a junior in college. We just did a camping trip together in the Ozarks where I witnessed him rolling the perfect fatty. Not only did he roll one for himself, but he also rolled one for the old man. A lump formed in my throat and a tear rolled down my cheek as I realized my baby boy is now a man....

As everyone knows, a "fatty" is an over-stuffed tortilla usually filled with a variety of left overs that were destined for the trash can, but when combined in a tortilla and topped with cheese and hot sauce, it becomes a formidable meal. A true fatty is so over-stuffed that when rolled, the ends may not even touch and both hands are required to wrap around it to to hold it together until finished. When camping, a fatty is the perfect way to use small amounts of left overs that aren't capable of making a meal on their own..

As with the start of ANY good meal, start by heating a pot of cooking oil...

Notice the perfect execution of the two handed grip...that's my boy!

Thread is not at all what I was expecting.

When I saw "Ozarks" and "rolling a fatty" I just automatically assumed this was going to be some kind of family reunion, overlanding fusion.

Sort of disappointed.

My Glamis group makes a delicacy we call "Dog-a-dillas." Flour tortilla, hot dog (must be cooked on a BBQ), refried beans (if you haven't tried these, they're great), cheese of course, then fixin's to taste (sour cream, various salsas.

What you said, plus your moniker 'Grubworm' reminded me of a favorite fruit juice street vendor in Cairo. We loved getting sugarcane juice from him every day; that is until SWMBO noticed a piece of sugarcane before he put it in his hand-cranked juicer - it had sugarcane borers crawling on it. After that she never touched it - but I did!!
