Ham and Pea Lunch Casserole
|Bacon hock||1 1⁄2 Pound, trimmed and cubed|
|Onion||1 , peeled and sliced|
|Ham and pea soup||14 Ounce|
|Freshly ground pepper||To Taste|
|Potatoes||2 , peeled and diced|
|Thyme sprig/1/4 teaspoon dried thyme||1|
|Frozen peas||4 Ounce|
If bacon is unpackaged, soak for several hours in cold water.
Pre-packed joints tend to be less salty, therefore soaking is unnecessary.
Heat oil, saute the onion gently for 2 minutes, then add the cubed bacon and cook for 3-4 minutes.
Place the bacon and onion in a casserole with the ham and pea soup, pepper, potato and thyme.
Cover and cook for 1 1/2 hours.
Stir in the peas 15 minutes before cooking has finished.
Taste and adjust seasoning.
