If it were not for bacon I could almost be a vegetarian.
Not only do I love bacon but we also save the grease,
storing it in the refrigerator in a mason jar.
I spread a little bit in a skillet to fry eggs in the morning before work.
I also use it to brown diced chicken breast for quesadillas, giving it
that extra something without actually adding bacon to the mix. My husband
may put a little into the green beans rather than using a slice of bacon.
He'll use it when frying hamburgers and most anything else because
what could be better than bacon?
The price of bacon has skyrocketed if you have not noticed. We have
been purchasing it in bulk and then dividing it into vacuum seal bags
and freezing it. It comes in a box and may not be perfect pieces
but it is about $2/pound. If you look at the price at bacon in the
store, you get less than a pound for $5-6 and it is still fatty.
Do you save your bacon grease?
