  • What to do with bacon fat?

    What should I do with the bacon fat left in the pan?
    Is it bad fat???

    I throw it in a small tupperware and keep it in the fridge. Seems to stay good for a while and I'll use it to grease the pan for cooking other things... or some more bacon!

      Mix it with broth and drink it, and you will get your reward later on in the paleo heaven...

        I cook eggs in it or drizzle it over salad. Favorite thing is to drizzle over steamed, sliced brussel sprouts and roast them with garlic, pepper and parsley.

            Thanks!
            Learning so much here!
            I love this new lifestyle, it's so outrageous for a former vegan always counting calories and fat.

                I pour it through a sieve into a glass jar. IMO it works best for sauteing dark greens (spinach, collards, chard)

                  But it doesn't come in sticks. I don't know how much to use.

                    This is my favorite way to use it. Spinach sauteed in bacon fat has become one of my regular breakfast side dishes.

                      I'm totally over spinach. I recommend you trade yours in for some collard greens. Or swiss chard. So much more texture.

                        They're all delicious, but because I find the flavors of swiss chard and collard greens a little stronger I cook them more for lunch or dinner. Spinach on the other hand I've always enjoyed for any meal of the day.

                          If you save up enough of it, use it to make french fries- omg, seriously the best thing ever. You don't need to deep-fry them, just add enough fat to cover the bottom of the pan about 1/4" high, add sliced potatoes and turn a couple times. Or, if you avoid potatoes, what everyone else said- it is all yummy.

                            Saute assorted mushrooms in it, or shredded cabbage and mushrooms.

                              I just use it as a cooking fat.

                              It's a very good cooking fat, being ~40% saturated, and ~50% monounsatured (almost entirely oleic acid, that found in olive oil). So from a compositional standpoint, it's rather like cooking with olive oil mixed with butter.

                              Except it tastes like fucking bacon.
