Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Heat a large skillet or saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (1 Tbsp) and Butter (1 Tbsp) and melt. Add the Sugar Snap Peas (1 1/2 cups) , Salt (1 tsp) and Freshly Ground Black Pepper (to taste) and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sugar snaps are crisp-tender.
Step 2
Stir in the Frozen Green Peas (3 1/3 cups) and cook while stirring for 3 minutes more. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
Step 3
Add Wright® Brand Smoked Bacon (8 oz) to skillet and cook over medium heat until crispy. Remove bacon to a paper towel-lined plate. Once bacon has cooled, chop into small bits.
Step 4
Discard all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease and if there's not enough bacon grease in the skillet, add enough butter so that the total drippings in the pan equal 2 tablespoons.
Step 5
Add All-Purpose Flour (2 Tbsp) to the drippings and whisk continuously for 2-3 minutes until flour is bubbling. You've just made a roux!
Step 6
Mash 1/2 cup of the peas and add them to the roux.
Step 7
Slowly and gradually stir in the Chicken Broth (1 1/2 cups) , whisking until smooth. Add the Heavy Cream (1/4 cup) and Ground Nutmeg (1/2 tsp) . Whisk continuously until the sauce is reduced by 1/3, about 5 minutes.
Step 8
Add peas back to the sauce. Cook, stirring, until heated through, about 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the juice of the Lemon (1) and season with additional Freshly Ground Black Pepper (to taste) .
Step 9
Transfer peas in cream sauce to a serving bowl or platter, and top with crumbled bacon and Fresh Herbs (1/2 cup) .
