Foy - I'll have to try using the burger grease in baking, never thought of that. I sometimes fry veggies etc. with it, but I usually prefer bacon grease for the extra flavor.

I'm sure my cats would love the grease on their food, but as somewhat overweight apartment cats, it probably wouldn't be so good for them.

You should try making biscuits with your bacon grease. They are awesome. Just substitute some or all of the shortening/butter with bacon grease. This gives them a hint of bacon flavor, and is especially good with some cheese in them.

I've been rinsing my beef for years and think it tastes great. I'm always amazed how much grease comes off when I do this.

I like substituting applesauce for half the oil in a recipe like brownies. I wouldn't recommend replacing all the oil or the texture of the final product is compromised.

One thing I do is use cooking spray instead of butter or oil for greasing pans.

I also own a George Foreman grill which is awesome for cooking bacon, burgers, any meat with fat really. I love seeing how much fat runs off that didn't end up in my body!

Save that fat! It's great stuff. I use it in my 10 grain rolls and I can't taste meat at all. The rolls are nice and soft and I didn't have to use oil or butter. Nice. I use bacon grease and such with sauting my veggies or in soups. If you spread the fat/lard out over your cooking you can keep the calories down and not waste so much.

If nothing else dogs and cats love a little fat mixed in their kibble.

Instead of skim milk powder, I use canned evaporated (not sweetened condensed) milk. It is also a much healthier alternative to cream in your coffee. I've also been known to use the vanilla flavored 2% milk to go as creamer in my coffee.

For ground beef, I don't rinse it because it washes a lot of the flavor away. What I do is brown it, drain it in a colander, then lay it out on paper towel on a plate. This soaks up most of the grease, but leaves the meat more flavorful. I cook up a couple large packages at once, then freeze it in small portions for easy meals later.

Also save the drainings from the ground beef. Refrigerate, then remove the fat from the top and discard. The juice underneath is great for making gravy (so much for the health thing) or adding to soups, stews, or anything else you would use canned beef broth for.
