    Cool OMG! I feel so sinful!

    Shop Now
    So I came home from work tonight and made myself breakfast for dinner. 3 slices of thick cut bacon, 1 pork sausage patty, 2 eggs, and sauteed onions, zuchinni and tomatoes (cooked in bacon grease ) I feel like such a sinner. How can this be real? LOL! I love it!

    I also had 2 hamburger patties for lunch with my big ass salad!

    My family thinks I've gone off the deep end, because I've been an avid turkey bacon and turkey sausage eater for years. I've never used bacon grease to cook with (even though my Mom always did when I was growing up). I've been brainwashed for years!

    I had fun with bacon grease this past weekend... fried some celery, onion, and green peppers... then crumbled the bacon into the mix.
    It was so tasty. It is strange shifting into eating this way after living on USDA prescribed cooking tools for years. So happy to be no longer brainwashed.

    Ha, don't feel sinful (unless you like to feel sinful), bacon grease is good for your heart.

    I was saving bacon grease for a while, then I realized how foolish that was. Now I just make a few slices of bacon every time I cook something. It's not like I can't shove down a couple of extra slices here and there. I had fish fried in bacon fat with a side of bacon for dinner. Unbelievably.

    Isn't it fabulous? I'm a newbie too. I've been experimenting with different brands of bacon to find the very best. After years of banning bacon from my house and only eating it very occasionally in restaurants, it is intoxicating to be able to make it a regular part of my diet. Of course, we are talking uncured nitrate free, but totally salty, fatty, yummy goodness.

    I've started using reserved bacon fat to cook my eggs in the morning, because I don't like the coconut oil/egg flavor combo. But bacon makes it outstanding.

    Ah but then that begs the real question: do you put bacon on your bacon on your bacon on your bacon...

    I believe the Applegate Farms uncured one was pretty good... though I really like Kroger's Low Sodium one, and I crack black pepper all over it, or sometimes spice it with Sichiji (awesome Japanese spice).

    I like using 2" squares of bacon as the chips for my guacamole. Doritos? Hah!
