This is what happens when you don't have all the ingredients for a 'family' recipe and you start experimenting: crisp fresh English peas sauteed in butter, then simmered with a bit of beef stock, dried onions, and crumbled bacon, then tossed with toasty bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese makes for an unusual and tasty summer side dish!

- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon dried onion
- 1⁄4 cup bacon, crumbled
- 1⁄3 cup beef stock
- 1⁄3 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
- 1⁄4 cup parmesan cheese, finely grated
- 1 teaspoon black pepper, freshly cracked
- Toss fresh peas (or thawed frozen) into medium heat non stick pan.
- Add butter and sautee lightly for 1-2 minutes, until peas are hot.
