Maybe not the most TF meal, but if you use bacon grease to 'butter' the bread for a grilled cheese sandwich, it is oh so good!

Sounds like he's listening to too many mainstream nutrition experts. I thought that saturated fat is no longer the enemy.

I'm more concerned with pesticides and hormones being stored in the fat of animals and then eating their fat than I am with my cholesterol being raised. I eat lots of animal fats and little vegetables fats (except evoo) and my levels are great.

Also, I keep it out on the counter (except in the hot summer) and it stays good for awhile. I've never had it go rancid before we've been able to use it. I use bacon fat, butter, and coconut oil for most of my cooking. That baconaise sounds really good.

Besides the uses already listed (I mostly do eggs, hash browns, and veggies) I also use it to pop popcorn.
