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.

4. To serve, top with butter. Sprinkle with remaining mint and bread cubes.
