Everybody's favorite ingredient-bacon-breathes new life into sweet green peas.
Why This Recipe Works
For our Bacony Peas recipe, there was no need to thaw the peas before cooking; we cooked them on the stovetop right out of the freezer. A little dark brown sugar complemented the inherent sweetness of the peas and highlighted the smokiness of the bacon. We were left with plenty of fat after crisping the bacon, most of which we discarded. We only needed a little to finish the peas.
