Healthy Alternative to Bacon Grease - Instructions

In southern cooking, many recipes call for the use of "bacon grease". I have a
healthier alternative. Cook bacon until crisp, drain thoroughly on paper towels. Pour
off fat from pan taking care not to lose any crispies and do not wash or wipe away
residue. Add some olive oil to pan (I use cold pressed extra virgin). Heat slowly
while scraping pan. Folks around here enjoy this poured over lettuce and onions fresh
our of the garden in the Spring and spinach in the fall. Both topped with the crumbles
bacon. Chopped boiled eggs are good on the wilted spinach. This bacon flavored oil can
be used in all your southern recipes calling for bacon grease. Enjoy!
