Sounds weird, tastes great. This is actually a combination of two Company's Coming Barbeque recipes -- "Peas With Bacon" and "Peas and Mushrooms." Now why on earth shouldn't it be "Peas, Mushrooms, and Bacon?!" This is actually a tin-foil packet dish for the grill, but my husband came home from work not feeling well, so since he's the barbeque-er, I had to improvise and use my cast iron skillet instead. Works either way!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. If using frozen peas, let sit in a bowl of hot water to thaw.
  2. Meanwhile, fry bacon and onion pieces until bacon is cooked (but not crisp) and onion is translucent.
  3. Add mushrooms and peas, adding margarine if necessary.
  4. Season with salt and pepper, if desired, and serve.
  5. *BBQ instructions: Fry bacon and onion as above. Using 4 squares of double-thickness heavy foil, divide bacon and onions evenly on each. Add peas and onions, margarine, salt and pepper, and a teaspoons of water. Close packages and cook over medium-hot grill for 10-15 minutes, turning occasionally.
  6. Try adding chopped carrots, corn, and/or chopped green beans.

Those who like peas liked these... those that don't... were not convinced otherwise! I liked it. The peas burst in your mouth and are full of flavor.

I have been frying frozen peas as long as I remember. Oil, garlic, onion in fying pan and brown a little, then add frozen peas and cook slowly and eat hot. Excellent dish and your family will ask for these all the time.
