Grease saved from frying bacon + cast iron skillet + popcorn kernels = one delicious snack!
We’re big fans of popcorn as a snack, generally we pop it in ghee. Last time I used bacon grease and it was AMAZING. Also popping it in a cast iron skillet instead of the normal stainless steel pan made a difference in taste. Now I’m going to be eating bacon constantly so I can have this popcorn!

What’s your favorite snack?
