Peas with bacon

peas with bacon

A simple side dish that takes 5 minutes to make, to be served with pretty much anything you like, because bacon goes really well with peas.


Peas, frozen or fresh
Cubed/chopped bacon or pancetta, about 1/3 of the amount of peas
1/2 an onion, chopped finely
Chicken stock

The Cooking

Ok, in a non-stick pan fry the bacon to whatever consistency you like it. Just cooked or nice and crispy, up to you. Once it’s as you like it, add the chopped onion and fry until soft but not coloured (about 2 minutes), then throw in the peas, give it a stir and pour in just enough chicken stock to moisten the whole thing. Cook for a couple of minutes and you’re done! This is excellent with a nice Sunday roast.

    I love peas and I love bacon yet I don’t think I’ve had them together, I’m going to have to rectify that soon!

    We love to cook peas like this.

    For a twist, use a good smoky bacon and add a teaspoon of sugar. This comes from mother-in-law comes who’s family was once Pennsylvania Dutch. It sounded odd at first, but I’m hooked.

    Hi, this is truly a great recipe, I have made this with a twist. Hoping that I can share it here. I do not slice the potatoes but bake with skin on, olive oil, salt and pepper. Once they are baked cut into two. Scoop the mass from the centre. Mix the potato mass and cheese and stuff it back ito the potatoes. Top with Cheese and bake for another 5 mins or till cheese melts. Its surely yummy and my kids just love it.

    Thanks for this new idea I am gonna try the sliced version this weekend…
