Peas and onions with bacon  June 10, 2015

My husband had a conversation with a coworker that prompts me to say this is a thing.

You will need:
Two slices of bacon
One chopped onion
2 cups of frozen peas

Place two slices of bacon in a sauce pan. If the bacon is frozen, add a bit of water. Cook over medium low heat until the bacon has started to brown and the bottom of the pan is nicely glazed. If you like your bacon really crisp, cook it until the edges crisp.

And the onion and cook until it is transparent and lightly browned. If you want, you can add minced garlic when the onions have started to turn transparent, but have not yet started to brown.

Dump the bacon and onions onto a couple of paper towels to drain. If you don’t have really crispy bacon, you may want to chop the bacon up.

Add the frozen peas to the pan and turn the heat up to medium high. As they melt, the liquid will deglaze the plane. Stir every 2 or 3 minutes until the peas are warm and the liquid evaporates.

Put the bacon and onion back in the pan (be sure you get all the onion bits!) If you want to add thyme, mint, dill, or tarragon, now is the time, but go easy on them. They don’t all play well with onion or garlic. Still well, serve, and enjoy!

As a footnote, take the pictures first. If you try to switch apps one handed to get a picture, the Post button in the wordpress iPhone App is in just the right spot to hit when you fumble your phone.
