I cook my eggs in it or save it for cooking with later.
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.
Zone diet on and off for several years....worked, but too much focus on exact meal composition
Primal since July 2010...skinniest I've ever been and the least stressed about food
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.
Mushrooms sauted in bacon grease... *drool*
The more I see the less I know for sure.
Very good for cooking lean meats such as game; adds flavour to stews as you brown the meat first
