I fry up 24 oz of bacon at a minimum weekly for our weekday breakfasts. I store ever last drop of it, but most of it gets used for making the rest of our breakfast (hashbrowns for DH and added to eggs for both). I have a peanut butter jar, a ghee jar, and a coconut oil jar full in my fridge right now... I'm trying to use up the grease in the pb jar so I can get rid of the yucky plastic thing and stick with glass. I don't cook with bacon grease much anymore though... not sure why.
What do you use your grease for? Specific recipes would be of great interest.

My most constant things to use bacon grease for is cooking my eggs in it, and making my greens gratin( I cook the onions and stems in it until they are soft). Oh, and frying boiled cauliflower in! Mmm, so good. And frying mushrooms. And zucchini 'sticks'. And...is there anything it is NOT good for?
Nom nom nom!!! I too make a weeks worth of bacon every weekend. I have a wide mouth mason jar I use for the grease. I grew up in the restaurant industry, so I've always cooked it in the oven and poured the grease off the corner of the pan. I usually cook up 2-4 pans worth at a time. If anyone cares, it's nice to only cook your bacon about 3/4 of the way when storing it and finish it off per recipe or meal, that way it always tastes fresh. I also keep my sausage grease to cook in too!
I don't think I have any specific recipes, but I like to add a dollop in as one of the fats whenever I make gravy! I make LCHF gravy all the time and a little added bacon fat is a good thing in my book.
