Baked Bacon

3 lbs of baked bacon & bacon grease for adding the bacon flavor to any dish.

 

By baking bacon, we can do a whole pound or two at once, and get it perfect every time. No more standing at the stove, getting splattered in bacon grease every Saturday morning. Bake up a bunch of bacon and have a slice or two every day from the fridge!

Instructions

  1. Lay out 1 pound bacon on a baking sheet, sides can be slightly overlapping as they will shrink by about 20%.
  2. Bake at 350* for 25 minutes.
  3. Drain on papertowels.
  4. Once slightly cool, but still melted, reserve fat in a mason jar to use for cooking.

Ideas for using bacon grease:

  1. Use as your fat to cook eggs in
  2. Use to caramelize onions
  3. Replace half the oil with barely-liquid (but not hot) bacon grease when you make mayo to make bacon-infused mayonnaise.
  4. Stir fry cauliflower rice with a tablespoon of melted bacon grease.
  5. Add to deviled egg filling for a bacon-taste.
  6. Use to brown roasts before pressure cooking or roasting.
  7. Replace half the butter oil oil in sweet recipes with bacon grease for an unexpected subtle bacon flavor.
