Bacon forever. ๐Ÿฅ“

If you’re like me and consume bacon frequently (or ever for that matter), you need to be saving all of that bacon grease and turning it into lard. I’m sharing my favorite bacon grease container and it’s actually cute! Yes, there is a cute way to store bacon lard – you’ll never be pouring it into any old jar again. ๐Ÿ˜

For so long I never saved bacon grease ๐Ÿ˜ฌ – I would always pour it right into the trash can after letting it cool, but never again, friends! When I discovered the many uses for bacon lard and that I was literally pouring liquid gold in the trash, I immediately looked for a solution on how to store it.

That’s when I found this super adorable pig-shaped bacon grease container on Amazon & it was love at first sight. ๐Ÿ˜

I’ll be honest – for a little over $14 I wasn’t ready to “splurge” on it right away. It took a few months of sitting in my Amazon cart and many more cringe-worthy happenings of me pouring precious bacon grease in the trash (after letting it cool), but one day I got so fed up that I finally ordered the Bacon Bin.

It comes in either red or pink and I love that it’s made of BPA-free silicone so you can pour hot bacon grease (up to 500ยฐF) into it without a worry in the world – I can’t say the same about a plastic trash bag. ๐Ÿคฃ

It even has a strainer built into the top so you’ll always get pure, clean bacon lard when it cools!

The bacon grease container has already saved me so much money! Why did I wait so long?! ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ It quickly recouped the price I paid for it and hello!… It’s the cutest thing I’ve ever seen and just makes me smile every time I use it!

So what exactly can you do with bacon lard? ๐Ÿค”ย Here are a few ideas:

  • Sautรฉ, roast, and grill vegetables.
  • Grill it on your keto peanut butter burgers (or any burger for that matter).
  • Don’t forget to spread a little on your keto buns, too.
  • Fry up an egg.
  • Always cook fish with it – it’s a game-changer.
  • Season your cast iron skillets
  • Use it as a soup base.
  • Spread a little on your keto pancakes.
  • Use it as a baking substitute.
  • Create yummy keto dressings with it.
  • Use it to make homemade dog treats.
  • Dip your bacon in it…bathe in it…just kidding. ๐Ÿ˜‰

As you can see, the options are truly endless and this bacon bin is a no brainer purchase! ๐Ÿ™Œ

Once you’ve poured your bacon grease into the bacon bin, you can store it in the fridge for up to a month, but chances are, you’ll use it all before then. ๐Ÿคค On another note, if you’re filling it up quickly like I am, you can also freeze it, easily slip it out and save it for future use. Or it’s also nice to share with neighbors. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Enjoy, keto friends!ย

    Even with cooking my eggs and grilling my veg, I still have plenty of bacon grease left. I keep it in mason 1/2 pint jars.
    I found this recipe for Bacon Maple Pecan Bombs that use bacon grease as the fat. So good! https://livbreatheketo.com/bacon-maple-pecan-fat-bombs/

      Oh cool! Thanks for the suggestion, Jess!

    That little piggy face! So cute! Hubby thinks it’s strange that I save beacon grease, but it makes everything so delicious.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

    I do have a question. Should you refrigerate your bacon grease? Iโ€™ve always assumed I should. Also, this is adorable & I have the pink one in my cart ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿท๐Ÿฅ“ we love bacon!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Growing up we never refrigerated it. We kept it by the stove. As an adult, I do refrigerate it. I think it’s a personal preference.
