DIRECTIONS

  • Cook the bacon in a large skillet until crispy then remove and dry.
  • If you used turkey bacon there won't be a lot of greece so you need to add a bit of oil to cook the onion, pepper and garlic. Cook these on medium low for 15-20 minutes (until they are soft and sweet). Make sure that you scrape up all of the yummy bacon flavor from the pan while you're at it.
  • Stir in the peas and the broth.
  • Season with the pepper flakes, bay leaf, thyme and seasoned salt and let it simmer over medium low for about 30 minutes (until the peas are tender).
  • Add the bacon and the ham and cook for another few minutes.
  • If the dish looks too watery at this point add the following: Mix 1-2 T flour into a bit of milk then stir it into the pea mixture. Cook a few more minutes to thicken up the mix.
