Bacon Grease: 0, Foil: 1

I saw this idea on Pinterest a while back and decided to give it a try last week. I thought it would be a cool way to easily dispose of bacon grease, but it didn't work so well. Basically you line a small dish with foil and pour the hot grease into it and when it cools in a hardened glob you just ball up the foil and throw it away. Easy enough right? It has been some time since I made bacon, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't take that long for the grease to solidify. Maybe it's because the weathers been so warm or foil and grease have a funny reaction, but my grease only partially solidified overnight.

Maybe I will try again in the winter. I couldn't find the original Pin for this idea. Anyone else tried this trick?


  1. In NY we used to pour bacon grease into a tin can and just keep adding to it...it would take months to solidify, and wasn't ever really solid.
    My friend Katie has a new blog about lies on pinterest...maybe you should submit this one to her!

  2. That's a good idea, and I love her site!!
