great for fried potato, adding to saute veggies for soup, love, love brussels saute in the bacon fat after they have been steamed. you don't need alot of the fat in using to saute etc. adds so much flavor. I have even added some in making biscuits. add a whole new flavor to them.

i never added it to biscuits. do you melt it or add it cold with the shortening/butter? or brush it on top?

Cooking bacon? pour off most of the bacon grease drop your eggs in the pan, let them start to set and then spoon some of the hot bacon grease you've saved over the tops of the eggs.No need to turn them..if you add some brown sugar and pepper to the pan before putting in your bacon, put it in turn it over then put in the oven..get a slab of bacon and cut it yourself in nice thick slices..heaven on a plate.

As mentioned, bacon fat is great for everything :)

If you are looking for a recipe, try searching for German Bratkartoffeln (fried potatoes). Someone mentioned home fries above, which are similar.

I save it and save it and save it and save it until I have enought to deepfry fried chicken. Then I go to the hospital and hook myself up to machines.

I add it as a solid mixed in with the shortening.

Chef Munky
I also use it when making doggie treats they love them. Who doesn't love bacon.
