I do the same. I keep a jar of bacon drippings in the fridge for whenever I need the flavor edge, or if I make green beans as a side. Minced, fried onions, with 2 TB of bacon grease, and a lb of green beans.

Heaven.

It seems to me that threads almost always turn into bacon, bacon fat discussions...

Or am I just fantasizing/hallucinating, again?

I have added it to two of my YouTube lists. That's wonderful.

I'm really pleased to see the attitude to bacon fat expressed here. I am so tired of people who think I'm weird or trailer trash for using bacon fat.

You may be a little weird, but in a way we love, but never trash. Some people (not DCers) are food snobs. They don't know what they're missing.

Personally, I think you are smart if you use bacon fat, you've already paid for it and it tastes divine!

YAY, I'm smart too. I hadn't thought about the fact that it was already paid for. Good point.

"Pork fat rules!" Like Emeril says.
