My grandmother was from Oklahoma, and like any good southern girl she knew all about frying things in bacon drippins. She used to cut up apples and fry them in bacon drippins. So good!
I have taken to baking bacon instead of frying it because I can cook more at a time with less mess and less hands on time. I usually line the sheet tray with foil to catch most of the bacon grease and make clean up easier. When I had the urge to make french fries the other day, I thought about how delicious they would be if cooked in bacon grease. Right?! Right.
Cook your bacon in the oven, set it aside, bake your fries in the collected drippins, then sprinkle the hot fries with freshly grated parmesan cheese. You’re welcome. Crumble up the cooked bacon to top the fries if you want.
I may or may not have made two sheet trays worth of fries while I was home all alone… and then didn’t save any for the rest of the family. Can you blame me? I didn’t think so.
Make yourself some bacon drippin parmesan fries and be happy! What is your fry dip of choice? Ketchup, ranch, mayonnaise, other… I wanna know!
