BJ Brinker’s Home Cooking: Bacon Popcorn

 This is pretty tasty.  Great way to use up bacon grease.  You can add melted butter after you put the popped corn into a bowl if you’d like



*4 ounces bacon grease

*3/4 cup pop corn kernels

*2 teaspoons salt

*8 slices bacon 


~Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

~Place 8 slices of bacon on in a single layer on a cookie sheet.

~Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, turning half way through (cook until bacon is crispy).

~Remove from oven and cool.

~Cut up bacon into small pieces and set aside.

~In a large pot heat up 4 ounces bacon grease and 2 teaspoons salt (I use a whirley pop corn maker).

~Put in 2 or 3 kernels in grease.  Once they start to pop add 3/4 cup pop corn.

~Put a lid on the pop and shake often as popcorn cooks.

~When the popping slows down, shut off burners.

~Remove and place popped corn into a large bowl.

~Stir in cut cup bacon and serve.
