What do you all do with your meatloaf drippings? Funny as it sounds, I think the meatloaf that I made today is only the second one I've ever made. I didn't have a special pan for it, so I just baked it in a glass baking dish. But on taking it out of the oven, I find that it's swimming in grease, and not just the clear stuff... something I'm not sure what to do with, as strange as that may be.

With my roast chicken drippings I make gravy, or cook with the fat. Same for turkey and roast beef and hamburgers. I don't like the taste of the pork loin or roast drippings, and the smell bothers me, so I tend to discard those, but I save other types of pork drippings (bacon, pancetta, etc.) to use with cooking other stuff, like eggs or potatoes.

But those meatloaf drippings - not the clear oil part (which I will definitely be saving to use as pan lubricant for something else) but the gelatinous fluffy looking part. Can I even use that for something else?
