Put it in a plastic bag and spread it out flat, then into the frig to firm up a bit:

Added 1 cup of Kraft 4 Cheese Mexican, mixed it all up, and put into a glass lined with a 1 quart ziplock:
Threw the glass in the freezer for 2 hours to firm up.
Pulled the sausage out and cut the bag in half. Pulled out the cheese mixture, slit the bag in half, placed on the sausage and rolled it up:
Made a bacon weave. I must say the store brand bacon is nice and straight:
Rolled it up then put in the frig to firm up a bit:
