How do you stretch bacon fat?

v

I have a recipe that calls for frying something in bacon fat, but after cooking a pound of regular (not low fat or low sodium) bacon, I don't have nearly enough fat to fry everything. What is the best way to stretch it? Crisco, vegetable oil or butter? I don't have time to run out and buy another pound of bacon. Any thoughts would be welcome.
