Make sure you get you cholesterol checked before you start cooking with bacon fat on the regular though. It's tasty but don't die

So then what do I do with the excess? I don't think I'd use this much on the regular?
Or beef fat?

it lasts a long, long time in the fridge, you don't have to use it all up in a few days or anything. just put it in a container and use a spoonful of it when you want

All things in moderation is all I'm saying. No one wants to end up like the fitness goon who ate all his meals cooked in excess bacon fat because it was "keto" and had a heart attack

otoh, use bacon fat instead of shortening in things. cut a third of the butter out of chocolate chip cookies and replace with bacon fat. it's incredible. also try with skillet cornbread, see this recipe with a unique twist on when to add it

I use butter a lot, maybe I'll try some substations there.

Bacon fat is great for a sofrito, which can then be used in black beans over rice, or refried beans

if you substitute 1:1 i think things can get too chewy, but i throw a tablespoon into tons of stuff

I bought some dried bonito flakes (a bit for me and a bit for my cats) and mixed some in with my stir fry today

western cooking has so much to learn

it's like a free smoky salty flavor you can use like a goddamned condiment
