Save that bacon grease!

~OK, so it's not super healthy, but neither is oil! A pound of crispy cooked bacon will yeil about 1/2 cup of bacon oil(doesn't that make it sound more appetizing?) which is like getting a .10 rebate on your pack of bacon. I grease my corn-muffin tins with it. And I use it if I'm cooking eggs or making stir-fry or fried rice. You can rub a chicken with it. You can coat potato skins with it and bake them crispy in the oven. I only use a little, it goes a loooooong way. Next I'm gonna try it on oven baked fries. ~

Mmmm... I use it a lot. Eggs, of course. I use a bit to saute green beans in before adding water to boil. I saute minute rice with some onions and green pepper in a little grease before adding tomato sauce and spices for spanish rice, awesome flavor. What tickles me, though, is a use it quite liberally when making fried potatoes. At family dinners I get too many requests for my friend potatoes, obviously I'm the only one in my family that saves the bacon grease. Or else they be just clueless, haha. So many uses... so little time. *sigh*
