There are many options to choose from to get rid of your grease and even depending on the type of grease you have there are ways to reuse it. Think of breakfast with sausage, bacon, and eggs. When you fry your sausage or bacon you have two great options to reuse this grease for cooking to make breakfast delicious. You can choose to fry your eggs or even scramble them in the grease which actually won’t make them greasy but instead absorb all the flavor of the meat. If you are a fan of gravy you can either use the grease immediately with flour and milk to make great gravy for biscuits or put it in a jar to cool and store in the refrigerator for gravy at a later time. There are many recipes that you can make using leftover grease that can pack a lot of flavors even simple dishes like a spoon of bacon grease in green bean packs a lot of flavors.
Some of us don’t really care for using grease over for new recipes and would rather throw it out. Some grease like vegetable oil can’t be reused, so what do you do? If it is a fatty grease like butter or animal fats, they will harden when cooled making it easy to simply scrape in the trash. Other grease that stays as more of a liquid should be poured into a container and disposed of in the trash. To avoid spills you can freeze this mixture and then throw it away. Always allow your grease to cool before discarding to prevent melting through trash bags or even potentially causing a fire.
