Uptown Succotash

(serves 4)
Delicious served aside seared scallops, grilled chicken, or flank steak

Ingredients:

4 slices of thick cut high quality bacon cooked and crumbled. Reserve 1 Tablespoon grease.  (applewood smoked is delicious in this recipe)
1.5 cups fresh cut corn (approximately 3 ears of corn)
1 cup of grape or cherry tomatoes cut in half
1 cup cooked lady peas, baby limas, purple hull peas or even edamame.  Make sure to cook in salted water.  I add a piece of bacon to the water for flavor.
1 Tablespoon chopped chives
1 Tablespoon bacon grease
1 Tablespoon butter
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Cook corn in butter and bacon grease until crisp tender.  Add tomatoes and cooked lady peas.  Cook until tomatoes are soft but still hold their shape (about 5 minutes).  Season with salt and pepper.  Remove from heat and add bacon crumbles and chives. Serve warm
