Wow! Sounds great for making large batches when we have guests stay overnight! Thanks!
When you cook bacon on the stove, you can stop the splatter of grease on your stove and your hands and arms by putting a wadded up paper towel in the pan with the cooking bacon. The paper towel will absorb the excess grease as the bacon cooks. Add a second towel if you need to. When the bacon is cooked and the pan and the grease cooled; remove the towel and throw it away. I have been doing this for many years, and it never fails.

I save very drop of bacon grease I can to cook with. Yes, I know it isn't good for you. And I don't use it every day. Mom always said "Eat what you like, only not much of it " So when I make green beans, sauerkraut or cornbread, I use bacon grease...can't beat it for taste.
When cooking bacon , bake it in the oven for less shrinkage and save the bacon grease in the fridge in a covered container. GG Vi
For perfectly crisp bacon that doesn't make a huge splattering mess in your kitchen, add a tablespoon of water to your pan after placing the bacon inside. The water will render the fat, keeping splashes at bay, while the heat continues to crisp your bacon well after all the water has evaporated.Read More...
Take a piece of bacon (not frozen) and dip it into flour, coating both sides, then fry as usual. Flour gives it more body and makes a beautiful crust. An added bonus is that the grease doesn't pop when frying, and shrinkage is less.Read More...
I keep a shaker, with large holes, filled with flour beside my stove. When I'm frying bacon, I sift some on the bacon in the pan. The bacon does not swivel up or spatter as much when frying. The bacon goes farther because it lies flat.Read More...
