    This is sooo tasty! I love cooking with bacon grease but only use it occasionally since it is high cholesterol. I was confused on the recipe because it lists teaspoons but the directions are tablespoons. You will need the tablespoons to make it tasty :) Will definitely keep this one in my recipes! - 8/2/10
