1. In order for me to get 1/4 cup of bacon drippings, I had to cook an 18-ounce package. Since some people already have bacon drippings on hand, I didn't say that an 18-ounce package of bacon was necessary. Plus, depending on your bacon, you might need less to get that 1/4 cup of drippings (my bacon was pretty lean). I do, however, recommend reserving 4 pieces of cooked bacon to chop and add to the top of the bacon gravy.
2. Love my recipe for Flaky Buttermilk Biscuits! Homemade is always best!!!
