Ingredients

  • 1/3 Cup bacon fat
  • 1/2 Cup white popcorn kernels
  • 1/4 Cup shaved Parmesan, for garnish
  • 1/4 Cup diced chives, for garnish
  • Dash of truffle oil

Directions

Combine the bacon fat and kernels in a pot, cover, and cook over medium-high heat. Once popping begins, tilt the lid slightly to let some steam out and give the pot a shake. Once the popping steadies and slows down remove from the heat. Pour into a serving bowl and garnish with shaved Parmesan and diced chives and drizzle with truffle oil.

Bacon Shopping Tip

Look for center cut bacon which comes from a leaner part of the belly - you'll get more meat and less fat.

Bacon Cooking Tip

Cook bacon over medium to medium-low heat to prevent it from burning, and occasionally pour off the fat. You can save it for later use as a cooking oil.
