There are tons of uses for saved bacon fat. cayjohan uses it in a vinaigrette for beet salad, while dinner belle puts some in her cheese grits and adds a bit to a pot of white beans. chocchipcookie uses bacon fat in her Caesar salad dressing. fearlessemily adds a tablespoon to a pound of burger meat with some milk-soaked bread and grills. You won’t taste bacon in the burger, but it is just luscious.
With all this good advice, chef chicklet got creative and used it to sauté up garlic, onions, and zucchini—the “best tasting zucchini” ever.
