How to Make It

Step 1

In a large skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until crisp, 6 to 8 minutes; transfer to a paper towel–lined plate. Crumble.

Step 2

Add the garlic to the bacon drippings and cook, stirring, until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the escarole, season with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper, and cook, tossing occasionally, until beginning to wilt, 2 to 3 minutes.

Step 3

Add the black-eyed peas and ¼ cup water and cook, tossing occasionally, until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle with the bacon before serving.
