    I may have passed my "Best Before" date, but I haven't reached my "Expiry" date!

    Absolutely.
    My large refried bean can af bacon grease is about 2/3 gone.

    After i fry bacon and remove it, I fry up a sliced onion and sliced jalapeños in the grease. Use that for scrambled eggs.
    The grease is then filtered into the bean can. Gives the bacon grease a really nice flavor and smell.

    Back to the point. I did this night before last (make roasted potato skins in case some of you forgot the thread topic) and they were good. I peel mine pretty shallow and don't get much potato with the skin. If you want to make these, they are probably a little better if they have some small amt of potato attached.

    Clean skins in the fryer and then topped with cheese.

    in the great depression my mother and 5 brothers and sisters carried slices of potatoes to school in a brown bag and there father my grand father carried the peals for his lunch. beacuse of this my mother would fry some up for me, to try as a treat. i an 70+++++now and still like them. BTW- the facts that i have relayed to you- both the peals and sliced potatoes i have mentioned were raw. i cant eat them raw! but i did not live in the time period mentioned. if my mother sent me to school with them i guess that i would have eaten them?

    Yes, everything is better with bacon grease.
