It’s hard to imagine anything we love more than popcorn slathered in butter, but we may have just found it.
Using this simple hack, you can infuse your popcorn with the flavor of bacon. Yes, yes, yes. It’s simple: Next time you whip up a batch of morning bacon, don’t you dare toss out that grease in the pan. Transfer it to a container and store it in the refrigerator. Then, when you’re going to which up that movie night snack, use the fat in place of the typical oil to pop your popcorn.
Even better? Make the bacon specifically for the occasion — then chop up the cooked strips and add ’em in with your popcorn at the end for extra pork flavor. And of course, if you’re a purist, you can always add some melted butter in there too. We won’t tell.
