Sweet Peas with Bacon & Shallot topped with Poached Egg2

We first enjoyed Sweet Peas with Bacon & Shallot {topped with Poached Eggs} for brunch.  Then made them again to serve as a side dish with Steak au Poivre.  Such a simple yet sophisticated dish. 

While we love most veggies as fresh as we can find them, frozen peas are probably among the best alternatives.  You will always find frozen peas and corn in our freezer, whether we prepped them in the summer for freezing or bought them at the super market frozen.  It won’t be long now though before spring sweet peas are available at the Farmers Market.  I can hardly wait for opening day!!
