Within the last few weeks someone had either posted a recipe or a hint whereby you use bacon grease. Seeing that we didn't have any at the time we have been saving it, but now I can't remember for what! LOL can anybody help me???

    RRP,[p]Bacon grease is good eats. I use it in cornbread, substitue some of the crisco with bacon grease. Use it to fry eggs or hamburgers. You can fry corn in it. Go get a southern cookbook.

    I second that roux thing. Also good to start a jambalaya.

    RRP,[p]Buy 90% lean hamburg and add 1 1/2 Tb of bacon grease per pound. Doesn't alter the taste, but the hamburgs will brown up very nicely.[p]Spin

    interesting...I wonder since I buy preformed patties if I could smear the bacon grease on the surface instead of misting with water to get the rub to attach and get the same browning effect? Thanks - and while neither this nor the other responses was the one I was looking for I appreciate all of them!

    RRP,[p]I don't know if it would work but trying it certainly couldn't hurt. A light coating should be all you need. I would appreciate you letting me know how it works.[p]Spin

    i bet it would make a nice meat pie crust, or maybe would be good injected into a pork loin or brisket.
