Bacon Popcorn Recipe
I was talking to some people on Facebook last week and we got on the topic of bacon grease. Obviously. Someone mentioned that she uses the bacon fat to pop stovetop popcorn, and my brain went nuts and I came up with this bacon popcorn recipe.

Do you have a favorite popcorn recipe or trick I need to try? Lay it on me, friends.
Do you want to be my best friend? Seriously? I have bacon grease in the drive and popcorn kernels in the cupboard and this sounds AMAZING. Afternoon snack, here I come.

Bacon grease =od for everything! Seriously, that’s the only way to have brussel sprouts!
Yes! I use bacon grease to cook popcorn, too! It’s so so good, but I need to get into this crumbled bacon + cinnamon sugar topping because that sounds next level.
Pretty sure my husband would die of happiness if I made popcorn with bacon grease. I like to make it with coconut oil but I will have to try this one!
