  • What do you do with the left over oil?

    When I cook I tend have a nice collection of drippings from chicken, beef or port. I love using it as salad dressing. When cooking bacon I sometimes use the bacon oil to either fry up some plantains or sweet potatoes. Do you guys have any creative ideas or uses for your left over oil?

    I never get leftovers. I have a dog who "does the dishes".

        I usually make a pan sauce. Just add some water/broth/wine to deglaze, reduce, then add some cream/butter.

            Lightly saute garlic in the oil, then add fresh dandelion, bok choy or swiss chard. Saute until tender.

                I have to agree with yodiewan. And as long as it smells ok, I keep just about every fat I cook with, especially bacon fat, filter it through some cheesecloth and use it 4 or 5 times for eggs, sauteeing veggies and as a salad dressing like you said. It's fair to say that I'm addicted to bacon fat and pastured butter.

                  Bacon grease makes a great caesar base. Just toss in 5 cloves chopped garlic and 3 anchovy fillets. Cook until it starts brown and transfer to your food processor. Add in the juice of half a lemon, a squirt of dijon and an egg yolk. Blend it up and taste- salt and pepper if needed. Best dressing in the world to top off roast cauliflower, cauliflower chorizo hash browns or a nice cabbage, spinach salad.

                      I'll use it to sauté some greens that need sautéing. Kale, chard, endive, whatever's on hand. Even if they're not eaten at that meal, it's a prepared green that I can easily eat at a later time.

                        Pour it into a ramekin and keep it until you want to fry something off in it. Mushrooms just soak it up ... warming up chopped spring greens in fat is really nice. That kind of thing.

                          Fat lasts a long while. I reserve all fat from pork, beef, etc. If it is a one use oil or a fat I don't want to cook with, I reserve in a covered pail in my garage until cold weather to make bird-cake (just mix with bird seed) to hang out in the winter for the birdies.
