    Why haven't I tried this before??

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    I just made the bacon, chicken and avocado salad that Mark posted on the blog a while back.

    Um, why did I not know that skinless chicken thighs cooked in bacon fat are the most amazing thing ever? Why have I never cooked with bacon fat before?? I'm in love and not just with bacon (which I already love), but cooking in bacon fat. I had no idea it was this good. Time to start saving mine to cook with...

    I've been saving mine in a jar in the freezer. I should thaw it out and use it.

    I can't save bacon grease, I never eat bacon alone, and use up all the bacon grease in the process. Usually it's scrambled eggs or brussels sprouts, but really anything I'm eating with it I just add some bacon flavor.

    I cook a whole thing of bacon on my Foreman or on a rack on a cookie sheet in the oven, then drain the grease into the jar. Hmmm...I need to make more bacon!

    i had this problem for a while, so i started buying extra bacon and cooking up a big batch of bacon bits (a small handful of which make an unbelievable snack in a pinch) just so i could save the fat in a jar for when i need it.

    Yeah, that changes once you start cooking bacon by the package and storing it for other uses. I actually had to toss bacon grease yesterday because my grease jar was full.

    Haha...I made some cod chowder the other day. The recipe called for frying up bacon, cooking up the leeks in the grease, and then adding the bacon back at the end. By the time the soup was finished, I'd already eaten all the bacon
