- If you’re planning to use your deep-fryer, fill it with Bacon Up Bacon Grease and be amazed!
You’ll fall in love with chicken wings, potato tots, French fries, onion rings, pierogies, etc. fried in Bacon Up. The bacon grease adds a rich, tasty dimension to the crispy treats. You’ll notice the delicious difference and never want to go back to boring oils. And with our gallon bucket, it’s easy to fill your fryer up – without having to fry several pounds of bacon first!
- Bonus idea for the deep-fryer: Fresh-made Bacon Up Tortilla Chips!|
Buy a package of tortillas and cut them into triangular chips. Pro Tip: Use a pizza cutter, clean kitchen shears, or a butcher’s knife to slice in half, then cut both halves in half again, etc. until you have 8 chips per tortilla. Heat the Bacon Up in your deep-fryer and then add the chips. Remove when crispy, drain on paper towels, and season to taste. In addition to salt, you may enjoy trying cinnamon sugar, lemon pepper, Italian seasoning mix, or Cajun/Creole blackening seasoning.
- If you’re more inclined to bake those wings, tots, fries, onion rings, or pierogies, Bacon Up can help you add flavor in the oven, too!
Melt some Bacon Up in a sauce pan or the microwave (use anywhere from a couple of tablespoons to a half-cup depending on how big your batch is) and carefully pour it into a large mixing bowl or a zip-up gallon-sized plastic bag. Add your potato tots, French fries, onion rings, or pierogies and toss to coat. Then spread into a single layer on a baking sheet and bake per package instructions. You’ll love the added flavor that the coat of Bacon Up adds!
Tasty Tot Topper Tip: Take those Bacon Up Potato Tots and add chili and cheese for an incredible appetizer or even entrée. See the full recipe on our website – https://baconup.com/chili-cheese-tots/
