I might wait a minute or so but not always. I don't worry so much because I use a canning jar not just any glass jar--this is important. Canning jars are tempered to put up with high heat.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Do you just wait for the grease to cool down before putting it in the glass jar? A friend of mine years ago poured hot hamburger grease into a glass jar and I still remember the explosion and glass flying around the room!!

I remember those. Nowadays I just use a wide mouth pint canning jar; works great with one of those handy plastic lids.

When I was a kid, my mother (and most other women we knew!) had a canister that sat by the stove just to keep the bacon grease in - I think it even was labeled "Bacon Grease" - I'll have to find out what she did with it - I'm thinking I need one emoticon

Thank you for sharing this article. What I really enjoyed was the comment by someone that starts with the words "Absolute nonsense". The person who wrote the response claims to be a doctor. Her comment basically states how animal foods promote disease. These days with so much information out there we have to take it all in and make our own choices.

In looking over my notes from the quiche recipe I see that last time I made it (the goddess gold metal one) I had actually used a whole pound of bacon and that is why I wrote "leaving MOST of the bacon fat in the pan" in my earlier post. I had to eliminate SOME of the fat because I had used that whole pound...makes a LOT of fat!

I saved the extra fat by pouring it through a strainer into a covered jar that I keep near the stove so I can use it to flavor greens and other things--beautiful white stuff. It really makes things like collard and kale taste wonderful; palatable even for those who have a hard time with dark leafy greens. Even things like mustard greens and dandelion greens can be toned down with the addition of bacon fat and salt and pepper. Those Southern cooks sure know their stuff!

PS: I never follow a recipe exactly myself and this recipe is no exception. You can use whatever amounts seem pleasing to you. The one I have given you is pretty close to the way I made it last time when my husband decided I was a goddess and started worshiping me. Don't know if you want that to happen so use caution

Crustless Quiche
Adapted from: www.foodrenegade.com/texas-style-cru
st
less-quiche/


6 to 8 slices of bacon
1 medium sweet onion, diced (yellow onion works fine)
1 medium red bell pepper, diced
10 oz. fresh baby spinach (or other veggie of choice)
12 - 16 ozs of grated cheddar cheese
(Reserve a bit of cheese to sprinkle over top last few minutes of baking if desired)
5 eggs, beaten
1/2 C milk (I used half & half and it was delish)
Pinch of cayenne
butter

1. In a cast iron skillet, grill bacon over medium heat until cooked. Remove bacon from skillet and add onions & red bell peppers. Cook until onion becomes translucent. Add spinach and stir until wilted or if using asparagus, just toss it in. Remove pan from heat, stir bacon back into mix.

2. In the meantime, mix cheese, eggs, milk, and cayenne in a medium mixing bowl. Add vegetable and bacon mix and stir until blended.

3. Grease a 10-in pie pan with butter. Pour quiche mixture into pie pan. Bake at 350F for 40-45minutes or until filling is set.

Let rest for 10 to 20 minutes before serving.

If you want to make it even richer toss in a couple extra egg yolks. I did that because I had them left over from the grain-free granola recipe which takes just whites. It was a good idea...yummmm

I love what bacon fat does to dishes. When I make my crustless quiche I cook the chopped bacon, remove it from the pan leaving most all the fat in the pan and then cook the onions and peppers in it making a thick mass the aroma of which will bring the neighbors in!! Then I fold that mass into the cheese/milk mixture along with the crispy bacon and any cooked veggies i have kickin' around and bake the whole thing. Sooooo good. DH gets on the floor and BEGS me to make it again! It's really good with asparagus being the added veggie but any will do.

Here's an article that shows the correlation between the rise of sickness/obesity and the era of the government's recommendation to ditch saturated fats and replace them with oils like soy, canola, and safflower
