    Cooking in bacon fat

    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.

    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
