Pea and Bacon salad w/ Meatloaf Sandwich

Jul 09 2015

Rainy and on the cooler side today; glad we did not get much rain since we had 2 inches the two days before. Sutters notified me by e-mail, I am on their list, they would have corn today. I thought maybe it would be late this year but said their corn is on high ground so it was right on time. I went to the grocery today and stopped at their stand and got some tomatoes. I will get some corn tomorrow to have with my ribs.

I went to Kah Meats and got some jowl bacon and a pound of their regular bacon. I did 5 slices to use for my pea salad and some of the jowl bacon to use in my beans tomorrow. I did it on my Traeger, started on smoke mode 180 deg. and eased up to 250 deg. and then to 275 the last 15 minutes.  I took the jowl bacon off after about 50 minutes so it had some fat left to flavor the beans. The other was done in 1 ¼ hours.

I made up the pea salad after the bacon was done. I only had one bag of peas so made a half recipe. I didn’t mix in the bacon, I like to serve it over top and it stays crispier. It went in the fridge until supper time.

I was having a cold leftover meatloaf sandwich, but the wife had hers heated with some gravy. We had a thick slice of tomato with a little vinegar and oil and some sliced Thai basil and the pea salad with the meatloaf.

The wife and I think this is the best pea salad; just some mayo and sour cream dressing and green onions with bacon. It is an old Frugal Gourmet recipe.
