You can get the flavor of bacon, even when you are out of it, by saving the bacon grease. I keep mine in a small container in the refrigerator. My friend keeps hers on the counter. If I put a little in the pan before cooking scrambled eggs, I get the flavor of eggs and bacon without the bacon.
Bacon is so popular now. I am surprised to read how many recipes that include bacon, even desserts! I have a few friends that seem to be addicted to bacon!
