    I do this same thing and let me tell you the clean up is so much easier. I love not having to wipe the grease up off the stove from the splatter.

    I've never thought of doing that, ds is a bacon hound and would eat an entire pound by himself if I allowed it. During the holidays we got him chocolate covered bacon- he was ecstatic!

    I never buy my bacon any less then 10 lbs. I Jokingly tell people we butter our bread with bacon grease but I had never cooked it in the oven and never put brown sugar and cinnamon on it.Well,I have now and LOVE it! Now just trying to figure what the grease off the sugar and cinnamon bacon could be used for.........

    When I was a kid I found a recipe in a "depression" era cookbook for Bacon fat Cookies. They were delicious little ginger cookies -

    Bacon-Fat Ginger Cookies

    Mix together in a large bowl:
    3/4 cup bacon fat, cooled & solidified
    1 cup sugar
    4 Tablespoons molasses
    1 large egg
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    1 teaspoon ground ginger
    1 teaspoon ground cloves
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    Chill dough for a few hours in the fridge.

    Roll into balls, press gently with a fork sprinkle with sugar.

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 10 minutes, until dark and ginger snappy. OMG they are GOOD!
    ~Enjoy!~

    Oh, and here's my favorite recipe for Bacon Fat Mayonnaise, - it's like eating a Spreadable BLT.

    You'll Need:
    * 5 egg yolks
    * 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    * 7 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
    * 1 1/4 cups rendered bacon fat, (chilled & Solid)
    * 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
    * Freshly ground Tellicherry black pepper to taste

    Put the egg yolks, mustard, and 1 1/2 teaspoons of lemon juice the into mixing bowl beating on high for 2 minutes, until well blended.
    Add the bacon fat , continuing to beat until the mixture is thick.
    Blend in the remaining lemon juice, adding a little at a time, sea salt and pepper, whipping it pretty much continuously, (the same way you would if you were making meringue).

    Adjust the seasoning to taste- you may not need to add ANY salt.

    The mayonnaise keeps for a couple of weeks in the refrigerator.
    ~Enjoy!~

    I've done this with the bacon on top of cooling racks placed on top of the cookie sheet. Not much grease left on the bacon, but still really good. Works for turkey bacon also. Will have to try the c&s next time.

    I cook my bacon in the oven as well, but if you would like to avoid it cooking in a lot of grease, place a cookie cooling rack on to of the foil and place bacon on that. I use exact directions above for the exception I use cookie rack so bacon fat drips to bottom. I use the method to bake fries and onion rings, cookie cooling racks are not just for cookies anymore.

    I've been doing this for awhile now and love it! I put a cooling rack on top the foil and then put the bacon on top....bacon automatically drained . One caution however...make sure your cookie sheet is a heavier metal and not warped. Made bacon this way a couple of weeks ago and my cookie sheet was older thin metal that had warped. When I pulled it out of the over, the pan buckled and the hot grease went up my arm and on my hand giving me 2nd degree burns. Needless to say I threw that pan away and bought me a new heavy metal cookie sheet.
