    How long is too long to leave bacon fat out? Say I cooked bacon tonight, could I cook eggs in it for breakfast?

    I don't have the official Health Department codes on this, but my mama used to strain the bits out with a small stainless steel strainer and leave it out on the counter in a bowl to cool and often forget to put it in the fridge. I lived to see the ripe old age of 45 so far...

    Yeah I leave it out and no issues. I suppose if you have a compromised immune system you might have an issue but I doubt it.

    I just leave it in the pan and reuse it the next day.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    bacon (before you even get it) is a cured meat, and cooked it can sit out for days unrefrigerated, as can the fat rendered off it. I wouldn't push it past 3 though
