“Tart apples, savory bacon, and crisp-tender pea pods combine to make a colorful and versatile side dish. To make ahead, prep all but the apples ahead of time, then sauté this dish right before serving.”


    • 2 teaspoons cooking oil
    • 3 slices turkey bacon, cut crosswise into thin strips
    • 2 medium leeks, chopped ( ⅔ cup)
    • 3 tart red cooking apples (such as Jonathan), cut into ½-inch-thick slices
    • 4 cups fresh pea pods, trimmed and strings removed
    • ⅛ teaspoon salt
    • ⅛ teaspoon cracked black pepper


  • 1 Heat oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add bacon; cook for 2 to 3 minutes or just until crisp, stirring occasionally. Add leeks and apples; cook and stir for 3 to 4 minutes or just until the apples are tender. Add pea pods; cover and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more or until the pea pods are crisp-tender. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
