- 5 slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
- 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen peas
- 1 teaspoon white-wine vinegar
- Coarse salt and ground pepper
In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium, stirring occasionally, until fat is rendered and bacon is crispy, 5 to 7 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to a paper-towel-lined plate, leaving fat in skillet.
Add peas to skillet. Cook, stirring frequently, until heated through, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in vinegar, and season with salt and pepper. Serve peas topped with bacon.
