This is similar to a pasta recipe I make with bacon,but not exactly the same,this is BETTER! I don't know if you can buy bacon grease,we certainly can't in the UK,but I'll tell you this,I was in my 20's before I had a bacon sandwich(bacon butty/sarnie)with butter on the bread,and I still prefer the way we used to have it as kids,that is with the bread dipped in the bacon fat,almost anything cooked in bacon fat,or as we call it "dripping",tastes fantastic!Thanks Tara, If you like fried bread on a breakfast try dipping the bread in bacon fat and grilling it like toast,and sprinkle it with water or milk first if you don't want it too greasy.

I loved this recipe, although I felt it needed a bit more spice for my family so I added some dried red pepper flakes to it and everyone loved it! Good work Tara... My daughters name is Tara also.
