Step 1

Add onions and cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until golden, about 8 min. Add salt, pepper and 1 cup (250 mL) water, scraping up brown bits from bottom of skillet.
Step 3
Reduce heat to simmer, cover and cook, 15 min. Stir in peas, cover and cook 5 min. more or until peas are tender but still bright green. Just before serving, stir in reserved bacon, butter and thyme.
