    Speaking of the good old bacon and egg choice for breakfast :) what is the best medium for frying same?
    My wife and I are wavering between butter, lard or rapeseed oil

    Total transparency, she no like lard, I no like rapeseed oil, but the real question is, which is better for you?

    Any advice appreciated ... thanks in advance.

    Butter then.. no question.. although I tend to use goose fat for eggs these days. Bacon of course needs no fat.

    I don't touch it....hard to say how much of this type of analysis is really valid, but since I have so many other options, I just don't buy it. I use lard, avocado oil, butter, olive oil, goose fat etc.

    And if I’m making bacon there’s no need to add any other oil.

    I use lard for fried eggs and butter for scrambled eggs. I fry mushrooms in the bacon fat Yummdenomnom.

    I use rapeseed oil for frying, I am yet to be convinced there is anything wrong with it.

    We use a non stick fry pan, no need for extra oil.

    Only one safe oil and that is fresh, extra virgin olive oil. And occassionally coconut oil (the hard white stuff at room temperature, not the liquid one)
