Cooking bacon is an art. Slow and steady wins the race. Fry the bacon on low or medium heat so the fat can melt while the meat gets nice and crispy. Just the way we like it..
So what should you do with the grease man? It's sacrilegious to toss bacon grease for one. Grab an old school ball jar, carefully pour the grease from the pan with a funnel, strain if you wish, and store in the refridgerator (keeps for about a month).
You can use bacon grease to sear meats, roast vegetables, make pie crusts (YUM!), fat for the occasional cornbread, or even to season your cast iron pan after cooking those glorious cuts of meat. Amen.
