Rendered fat from 6 pieces of cooked thick-cut bacon
Popcorn kernels
Kosher salt, to taste


Make popcorn the old fashioned way using oil and popcorn kernels. Switch out the corn oil for some flavorful bacon dripping.

The results are fabulous. A bowl of fluffy, crunchy white clouds with a hit of salty, smoky goodness. Sure to impress your friends and your taste buds.

In a heavy bottom, high sided pot with a tight fitting lid, over medium-high heat, add enough rendered bacon fat to cover the base of the pan.

Place 3 popcorn kernels into the pan and put the lid on. When you hear the kernels pop, you know the pan is hot enough and ready for the rest. Pour in enough kernels to cover the bottom of your pan in one even layer.

Place the lid on and wiggle your pot back and forth over the burner to make sure no kernels get burnt. You will begin to hear popping, and smell the lovely aroma of bacon. Keep shaking, and remember it's worth it.

When the popping subsides, remove the pan from the stove and pour your bacon fat popcorn in a large bowl.
