I remember Grandma Smith serving this at Thanksgiving Dinner. I found this recipe on Bloggingitswhatsfordinner.
2 bags frozen sweet peas
1/2 – 1 lb pearl onions (can also be frozen … I think)
1 lb of bacon
3 TBS butter
salt & pepper
Fry bacon until crisp. Remove bacon and crumble it. Drain all but a couple tablespoons of the bacon fat. Add the pearl onions to the pan with the few tablespoons of bacon drippings and grease. Toss in butter. Once the onions begin to brown around the edges and are turning transparent, add all the peas at once. Heat until peas are warm, about 5 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. If you want bacon in the dish, go ahead and add your bacon now.
