Have you ever heard the saying, "Bacon makes everything better"? Well, this dish is a combination of purple hull peas and bacon. But, that's not all. There's ham in it as well. It's a perfect dish to have during lunch or even dinner.
- 3 slices bacon (diced)
- 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 1/2 cups onion (chopped)
- 3 cloves garlic (smashed and minced)
- 8 ounces ham (diced)
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 4 cups fresh purple hull peas
- Salt and pepper (to taste)
Cook the bacon in a skillet or microwave until almost crisp.
Remove to paper towels to drain — heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
Add onion and ham and cook, stirring, until onion is tender and lightly browned. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute longer.
Add the bacon, chicken broth, and peas and bring to a simmer.
Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 50 to 60 minutes, or until peas are just tender.
Remove cover and increase to medium-low; simmer for 5 to 10 minutes longer.
Taste and add salt and pepper, as needed.
