Looks like a delicious meal for fall! I do like to cook with bacon grease as well. I don't have a jar in the fridge (that's a thought though) but whenever I cook bacon, I always use the grease to make something else as well!

Thank you Michelle! Typically cooler months I use more bacon grease for those rich and savory meals but always keep it on hand. That's something I carried over seeing it in the fridge growing up ;)
