    Should one eat the bacon grease from the frying pan?

    Its just fat right? So we should be able to eat it, but its somehow unsettling to imagine just drinking it.

    If I have any left over, I pour it into a dish and use it for sauteing later.

    I keep a tub of bacon grease in my fridge and use it regularly for cooking. Stir-frying veggies in a little bacon fat has gotten my veggie-adverse hubby to eat things I didn't think he'd every touch before - like broccoli sauteed with onions, garlic.

    I can't imagine eating/drinkinng it straight, but that's just me. I know there are folks in this community who eat coconut oil by the spoonful.

    I also keep a tub in the refrigerator. I pour the grease from the pan through a sieve into the tub in order to clean it up a bit. I use it for sauteeing veggies & meats, put a dab in the crockpot with a lean roast for extra flavor.

    Melted bacon grease is great for roasting brussel sprouts. Gives them a deeper flavor. I've also used melted bacon grease on chicken legs/thighs. At one point, I have thought about eating bacon fat from a spoon. I thought about it, didn't do it.

    I am one of those folks. =)

    I just poor it in a little cup I keep in the fridge, but usually it does not make it in it. It gets used up cooking other foods right after making bacon. Mmmmm Bacon.

    Very good for cooking lean meats such as game; adds flavour to stews as you brown the meat first
