Creamy Peas & Ham

Ingredients
2
1/2-inch-thick slices country bread, cut into 1/2-inch cubes ( 1 cup)
3
tablespoons peanut or vegetable oil
1
tablespoon minced garlic
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon freshly ground pepper
4
medium shallots, chopped (1/2 cup)
3
cups sugar snap peas, strings removed (10 oz.))
8
ounces cooked ham, diced (1 cups)
2
cups frozen peas, thawed and patted dry
1/2
cup whipping cream
3/4
cup coarsely chopped fresh mint
1
tablespoon butter, sliced (optional)

Directions

  1. In a large bowl toss bread cubes with 2 Tbsp. oil, 1 tsp. of the garlic, 1/4 tsp. of the salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper.
  2. Heat a 14-inch flat-bottomed wok or 12-inch stainless-steel skillet over high heat. Add bread; stir-fry 2 to 3 minutes or until toasted. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate; set aside.
  3. Swirl remaining 1 Tbsp. oil into pan. Add shallots; stir-fry 1 minute. Add remaining 2 tsp. garlic, sugar snap peas and ham; stir-fry 1 to 2 minutes or until sugar snap peas are bright green. Add peas, remaining 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper; stir-fry 1 minute or until well combined. Swirl in whipping cream; stir-fry 1 minute or until sugar snap peas are crisp-tender and cream thickens. Stir in half the mint. Remove pan from heat.
