Steps

  • 1

  • 2

    In a medium bowl, toss peas with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • 3

    Place a grill mat or tray on the grill grate to prevent peas from falling through the grates.

  • 6

    While the bacon and peas cook, heat butter in a pan over medium-high heat.

    Add shallot and garlic and sauté until tender and cooked through. Deglaze with bourbon and cook until reduced by half. Add maple syrup and salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  • 8

    Remove bacon from grill and chop into 1/2-inch pieces.

    Toss the bacon pieces with the grilled sugar snap peas and maple bourbon mixture. Enjoy!
