Prep time 15 mins
Cook time 20 mins|
Give your wood-fired eats a serious snap of flavor. Grilled sugar snap peas pair perfectly with smoky, sweet and salty bacon.
2 lb SUGAR SNAP PEAS, ENDS TRIMMED
2 tbsp OLIVE OIL
1 lb BACON
2 tbsp BUTTER
2 medium SHALLOTS, THINLY SLICED
1 clove GARLIC, MINCED
1/4 cup BOURBON
2 Tbsp MAPLE SYRUP
SALT AND PEPPER, TO TASTE
When ready to cook, set the Traeger to 350℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
In a medium bowl, toss peas with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Place a grill mat or tray on the grill grate to prevent peas from falling through the grates.
Place peas on grill mat and cook for 10 minutes until lightly browned and tender but still bright green.
Place bacon slices on the grill next to peas and cook for 15-20 minutes or until fat is rendered and slightly crisp.
While the bacon and peas cook, heat butter in a cast iron 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.
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!
