Summer Succotash


Yesterday was International Bacon Day.  Who knew and who creates these days?  A few weeks ago I tried Summer Succotash, a recipe I saw in More magazine several years ago.  It combined peas and corn, which are personal favorites with the addition of crispy bacon.

I loved how easy this was to put together.  The bacon gives a smoky flavor to fresh vegetables.

Summer Succotash
Serves 6 to 8

4 slices applewood smoked bacon, diced
1 sweet onion, diced
2 cups corn kernel
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 cups fresh or frozen sweet peas, blanched
3-4 sprigs of thyme
Salt and pepper, to taste

Cook bacon in a pan.  Once it begins to brown, add onions and cook until soft.  Add corn and garlic, saute 3 to 4 minutes.  Add peas and thyme; stir well.  Season with salt and pepper.
