4 pounds raw Italian sausage
3/4 cup brisket hash
1 cup aged cheddar cheese
1 1/2 pounds either cherry wood or applewood wmoked bacon, thick cut

Brisket Hash

1/2 pound, 14-hour smoked brisket (brunt ends chopped into small dime size pieces)
1 ea yellow sweet onion (medium diced)
2 ea Roma tomatoes (seeds removed and diced into large dice)
1 ea red bell pepper (cut into large dice)
1 ea green bell pepper (cut into large dice)
3 ea garlic cloves (sliced thinly)


Combine and with a small drizzle of olive oil and cook together for 7-10 mins over medium heat. Cool completely prior to use in bacon bomb.


1. Using a baking sheet or cookie sheet pan and two pieces of parchment paper, flatten out the sausage until it's about a quarter-inch thick and about the length of the sheet pan by 9-10 inches across.

2. Spread the cooked and chilled brisket hash across the flattened sausage then the cheddar in a single layer

3. Using the parchment paper as a guide, lift the paper in a rolling motion forming a "log," rolling away from your body but maintaining even pressure doing so by crimping using your fingers to ensure a tight uniform roll.

4. Once completely rolled place into refrigerator for 30 minutes to set up before rolling onto bacon lattice.

5. Using a separate piece of parchment form your bacon lattice on a flat surface, a lattice is a weave of bacon just like when making a pie lattice, the same concept applies but with bacon.

6. Remove rolled bomb from the refrigerator and set directly in the center of the bacon lattice and using the same technique as when rolling the bomb repeat here.

7. Once completely wrapped and folded over, lay out a large portion of plastic wrap and lay your bacon bomb in the center, fold over the plastic wrap and roll away from you constantly holding pressure to ensure a very tight roll, after roll is complete, simply twist tie off the ends and fold underneath bomb and refrigerate for 30 minutes prior to smoking.

8. Remove from refrigerator and place in pre-heated smoker where the thermometer reads
215 degrees for roughly two hours.

About Ovarian Cancer:

Ovarian cancer is often referred to as "the silent killer" because many women do not discover their disease until it is in the late stages, which leads to many women succumbing to the disease within a short period of time. Unlike cervical or breast cancer, ovarian cancer does not have a standardized early detection procedure. When it comes to women's health, ovarian cancer proves to be one of the deadliest diseases.

About Colleen's Dream Foundation:

Colleen's Dream Foundation started in 2012 and supports research for early detection and improved treatment for ovarian cancer. The story of Colleen's Dream started in 2007 when Colleen Drury -- Nicole Cundiff's mother and Billy Cundiff's mother-in-law -- was diagnosed with late-stage ovarian cancer. The family became aware of a new world that was filled with invasive surgery, harsh chemotherapy, and lots of uncertainty, and realized they needed to help others who were dealing with ovarian cancer.

Colleen's Dream Foundation believes it is important to raise money for research that will lead to reliable early detection testing and improved treatment for ovarian cancer. Because so little is known about ovarian cancer in proportion to other women's health issues, there is an incredible opportunity for research and education.

Colleen's Dream Foundation is a qualified 501 (c)(3) tax exempt non-profit organization based in Phoenix, Arizona.

Putting the Brakes on Breast Cancer
Valley Auto Repair Shops Offer Freebie, Provide Donations to Vaccine Research

Howard Fleischmann Sr. is back on this Sunday to break down the basics of brakes and tell us how we can get FREE brake pads in the month of October to help support research for a breast cancer vaccine!

(PHOENIX) -- It's not your typical breast cancer awareness campaign. Dozens of locally-owned, neighborhood auto repair shops are joining forces to raise money for a promising breast cancer vaccine. While Arizona is part of a national campaign, our state stands out for having the most independent shops participating.

All proceeds from the 'Brakes for Breasts' campaign will go directly to the Cleveland Clinic Breast Cancer Vaccine Research Fund. Not a penny will be spent on administrative or marketing costs. The vaccine, developed at the Cleveland Clinic's Lerner Research Institute has been shown to prevent breast cancer in laboratory mice.

"The idea of eliminating breast cancer, as we've seen happen with polio in the United States, is exciting, " says RaeAnn Hayward, board member. "We are grateful to play a role in this revolutionary research."

During the month of October, at least 30 locally-owned shops from across Arizona will join more than 100 other independent shop owners in 26 states in the 'Brakes for Breasts' campaign. Customers will receive free brake pads (up to $80 retail value) when scheduling a brake service in October. Customers will pay labor and any additional parts while each shop donates 10 percent of every brake service to the Cleveland ClinicBreast Cancer Vaccine Research Fund. The 'Brakes for Breasts' program, which started in 2011, with five shops in Ohio, hopes to raise $100,000 this year.

You can also follow the campaign's progress or find an AZ shop near you at
