Food What do you do with leftover bacon?

I made my infamous jalapeño cream cheese and shrimp stuffed bacon wrapped peppers for the super bowl festivities today! I use a pack of bacon and cut them in half which yields about 24 or so pieces. I had two pieces left so I put them an a ziplock bag and tossed in the freezer! I'm going to use those two pieces(instead I'd throwing away) for seasoning some purple hull peas later!
What do you do with your little bit if bacon leftover from projects I also use them to season my
pinto beans
Green beans
Mustard greens
Crumble in quiches

I will open a pound of bacon for my boys, pull out the pieces I'm going to fry up, and then roll the leftover strips individually into rolls and freeze them standing upright on a cookie sheet until they are hard. Then you just snap them off the cookie sheet, bag them, and you have an individual bacon roll for when you need a strip or two for a recipe, or you only need a couple of strips. They thaw quickly.

Haha! True- leftover bacon is hard to come by!
I also could take those two pieces for later and cook and crumble them to top a salad!
