Directions for Preparation
- In a medium saucepan, fry the onion with the fat until golden brown.

- Let cook until thickened. Add more milk if needed.

Optional: Use a hand blender right in the pot or transfer the corn to a blender to purée into a thinner consistency based on your family’s preference.
*Bacon grease is saturated fat. That means it is not a heart-healthy choice, but it certainly does have a lot of flavour. Save it in the freezer to use little amounts in recipes as a seasoning and use vegetable oil most often for frying.
