My mom used to put the bacon drippings in a coffee can (after transferring the Maxwell House to the canister), for later cooking. One morning she messed up and put the bacon grease in the percolator instead of the coffee. Dad wouldn't have noticed, except his toast kept sliding down this throat before he got a chance to chew it.

Okay that was a joke I stole from an Alan King book (Help! I'm A Prisoner in a Chinese Bakery!, I think). My serious recollection is that I vaguely recall mom using the bacon grease as the oil component of the batter when she made pancakes.
