  1. Cook the minced bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until the fat has rendered out and the bacon has begun to crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside, leave the bacon fat in the skillet. Add the sugar snap peas, and toss to coat with the fat. Cook and stir until just cooked through, about 5 minutes. Pour in the balsamic vinegar, sugar, and cooked bacon. Continue cooking until the balsamic has reduced, and the sugar has dissolved, about 2 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve immediately.

Yum! I love snap peas. I also love balsamic so I knew this was a match. I used fresh snap peas but had to use Splenda as I can't have sugar but it turned out wonderful and less calories also. I ...

Nice. I followed the recipe and it turned out very good. A little more bacon grease than I would normally consume, but the flavor was superb. Does not reheat well.

I love snap peas and this glaze is so yummy. The only tweak I make is adding some slivered almonds on top right before serving. I love the crunch.

I used balsamic glaze instead of reducing the balsamic vinegar with the sugar. I also added 1 tsp of olive oil and toasted sesame oil, as well as some garlic powder and salt. It was delicious!
