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. ~

Those pork rinds with the hair sound gross!! lol. My mom always had a can of bacon grease and cooked with it. She always added it to green beans and seasoned a lot of things with it. I've never used it. I thought it would be unhealthy, but maybe not (in moderation of course). It does give food a good flavor.
