“When I make this I make lots and then freeze in bags using my Food Saver storage system, this method saves time and not to mention the greasy clean up that comes with frying, I pour the grease into a Pyrex measuring cup then save and refrigerate overnight or until hard then scoop out a few tablespoons at a time, freeze on plates then I place in freezer bags to use in recipes to add flavor, you may save or discard the grease --- since RZ system would not accept one ingredient I have listed 1-1/2 pounds bacon separately, you may of course use as much as you like.”
1 pound
