Pan Popped Popcorn

Not a recipe, but wanted to share that cooking popcorn on the stove top in a little rendered bacon fat tastes awesome! It doesn't taste like bacon flavored popcorn, more like popcorn with a mild smokey, bacony flavor. It's just a hint of it, but it's really good.

For some dumb reason I don't remember, I told myself I was giving up bacon after Tomato ( BLT) season. Well, so far I haven't done so. Still no bacon in the house right now. I did pause a minute, get out of my chair, and go look in the freezer and my little container of bacon fat is half full. Whew.

And there's football on the tv tomorrow afternoon. Perfect.

Thanks for the idea. I'll definitely try this one next time I make popcorn.

It's bacon, so it has to be good. What a great idea. I will need to try this sometime.

I got a package of bacon yesterday to make some bacon wrapped shrimp last night. I didn't look at the price until I got to the checkout. You know I spent $7.49!!! Unbelievable!
I used the leftover bacon for an omelette this morning. At least I got two meals out of it.

Sounds like a good idea to me. I'll have to give that a try sometime.
