Personal Notes:
My mom made this for cocktail parties in the 1960s and 1970s. Bacon grease is not great health-wise, but every southern cook I know keeps a jar in the fridge. It's not like you are going to eat this every day. I always use more wheat chex with I make this durning the holidays, I pick them out and leave the corn and rice for others.
