Is This The Grossest Idea Ever or . . .The MOST AMAZING!!

Sometimes ideas just come to me in a flash of brilliance. This usually fades as I slowly realize just how dumb an idea it actually is. You will either say the idea I came up with yesterday is genius or it's the dumbest, most disgusting thing you have ever heard (I'm leaning towards the latter.) I warn you before you read this, it is not for the faint of heart, or should I say stomach.:

I was cooking up burgers on my George Foreman Grill (still my favorite boxer-branded cooking device, far better than my Wladimir Klitschko Rapid Rice Cooker - burns the rice every single time) when I started thinking about how much fat comes off the meat. The thing is, the fat is where all the flavor is. This got me thinking (And, if you think you know where I am going, you are 100% right, so jump off the thought train now before it is too late) what if took all this delicious fat that pools up in that little plastic catcher's mitt piece on the George Foreman grill and used as a sauce! Yes, correct, I would like to use the fatty pool of liquid that collects off the George Foreman as food not just something you leave outside for the birds to eat (Oh, what, like I'm the only one who's done that?) My immediate idea is a sauce for spaghetti and meatballs. For a less gross version I would strain it and use it as a base for a tomato sauce.

Thoughts? Who's hungry? Who's violently ill?

I thought the reason for the GFG was to get rid of the fat!! Healthy is not then taking that fat and eating it!! Gross!!

That is normally called "gravy". I always make my gravy, whether for a turkey or roast beef, from the fat drippings that come off the meat. Sorry. It's not a new idea.
