By far, my favorite way to cook eggs and the tastiest way. I save it for special occasions, though. I also like to cook them in the skillet after I've browned some sausage.

Cooked some yesterday for a warm spinach salad I made....which was awesome! I cut my pieces in half first then cooked in skillet over med heat. Cooked very evenly and turned out great.

seriously? I mean I could see if you cook eggs in 3 tbsp of bacon grease it may be a turnoff, but I never cook eggs using anything BUT bacon grease. so good.

I cook bacon a lot in the microwave when I'm just doing a few pieces for a BLT or salad etc... I just put a few paper towels on a paper plate, put the bacon on and cover with another paper towel. Comes out perfectly every time and not nearly as greasy. Pan fried is better. The microwave is different but good.

i'd really like a technique that i can use with my one iron skillet to knock out a whole pound of bacon


Have a friend who cooks bacon for Brotherhood meetings. He takes the skillet and puts the entire pound of bacon in and starts scrambling it as it begins to cook and render fat. He does it over med high heat and just keeps scrambling it as it cooks. eventually he gets a ful skillet of fried bacon and starts puling out teh pieces as they look done. Some will finish a miute or two before the others. As he removes them, he places them flat on draining paper towels and they come out crisp, flat and fully cooked. All he had to contend wit at that point is the next pound of bacon, which he just throws in and begins the scrambling process again. I have seen him cook four or five pounds of bacon this way, maybe only slowing the process to remove (dip out) some grease if the skillet gets too full as he cooks.

aweseome! cant wait to try this. how does he get the bacon flat? does he put a meat press or antying on it or does it just lay flat because its still wet when he takes it out of the skillet?

However it is is how he fries it. He just places it flat on drain towels when he takes it out.

Seems to work fine and the guy has fried hundreds of pounds of bacon this way - 2-5 pounds a month for as long as I have served with him on brotherhood.

Been wanting to try this method, but my laziness keeps getting in the way so I keep using the microwave instead

WTF? Ex would throw away bacon grease then pour a cup of cooking oil in a pan to fry eggs. Disgusting. Bacon grease is the absolute best way to cook eggs.

I'd argue it ties with clarified butter. Both are excellent.

Why? I find the best way is to cook bacon with a little left over bacon grease. Not too much, but just enough to get it going a bit.

A bacon press does the trick. Probably the only kitchen unitasker I can endorse.

Eggs cooked in butter in a non-stick pan is really the only way to go if you ask me.

I miss the way Maw Maw used to pour the dripping in and old timey coffee pot to strain the pieces of bacon out. Then she would use those dripping in dern near everything!
