Here at the Marvellous Meat Co we produce bacon that is truly delicious, mouth-watering and free-range, of course. It makes the best accompaniment to almost any recipe and is even perfect on its own, for that classic bacon sandwich.
When you’re tucking into our crispy back bacon on a Sunday morning, you won’t want it to end. But what do you do with the leftover bacon grease when it does? We know you can’t throw it down the sink, and it’s not so easy to throw it away. So what do you do?
Well, here are 6 ingenious ways to reuse your bacon grease that are better for your environment and easy to carry out.
1. Add to baked beans. Injecting some delicious bacon grease into your portion of baked beans takes it up a notch, producing a deep, smokey flavour that will keep you coming back for more.
2. Use them with spuds. Whether you’re making home-made chips or sautéed potatoes bacon grease is a great way to add a lovely bacony-flavour to your spuds whilst making them crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.
3. Pour over dog food. Give your canine a treat by drizzling your liquid bacon grease over their usual dog food; they’ll absolutely love you for it!
4. Feed the birds. Strange but true, birds love bacon – we can’t blame them! Cover a pinecone in bacon grease, then roll in bird feed. It works as a sticking agent and will have all the local birds coming to your garden for a treat.
5. Make a salad dressing. Add white balsamic vinegar, a touch of brown sugar and some chopped red onions to a bowl of fresh bacon grease. Mix and pour over your favourite salad for a novel way to enjoy the bacon flavour.
6. Render and store. Pour fresh bacon grease into a jar or container and store for up to a month. Dip into it when you need it, for cooking peas, green beans and other veggies that could do with a tasty bacon kick.
7. Add to ketchup. Adding bacon grease to ketchup or chipotle sauce brings out the natural flavours and leaves you with a yummy, barbecue taste. Delicious!
Now you know what to do with leftover bacon grease, it’ll never go to waste again. With a different solution to almost any lifestyle, there’s now even more reason to tuck into our crispy, scrumptious bacon more often.
