What are some uses for bacon grease? We like to put a little in green beans, especially fresh picked ones.
I don't cook much bacon, but I do cook a lot of ground beef. It seems like I should be able to use beef grease for anything that using bacon grease was suggested for, but I just wanted a 2nd opinion. What do you think?
Yes, you can unless you want the bacon smell of the bacon. However, since neither of these are good for you, I'd limit the use of these.
Can you say, "unhealthy?" The only thing I'd use beef fat for are: making suet cakes for the birds and making old-fashioned lye soap.
Hamburger grease just isn't the same. 1) the flavor isn't as intense. 2) it's not as 'fatty' as bacon grease. It is good though for making gravy for a beef roast, soup base, stew flavoring and for quick pop overs (Yorkshire Pudding) without a Prime Rib.
Leave a bit of bacon grease out in a bowl where you have an insect problem. They will be attracted to scent, go in, and get trapped in the thickness. I found this out by accident when I left bacon grease out on the counter. We had a flying insect problem... And now we don't! ;)
