Last Night's Dinner

Take a gander at this:
That can mean only one thing... Bacon-wrapped bratwurst cooked in black-eyed peas. Why? Because I don't want to live forever, that's why.
First, while you preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C for you metric ponces), you want to take a ½lb of bacon and lay it out on your foil lined baking sheet arranged as shingles, meat side in / fat side out so we can burn off some of that fat. You will then roll the brat in your meat-shingles and lay it on the foil with the seam facing down. Pierce with about a ½ dozen toothpicks or so to secure the roll. Place in the oven for twenty minutes.
The next part is so simple it's stupid: chop yourself about a sixth of a red onion and pop open the can of black-eyed peas. Stir these into a large pan, juice and all, adding a ½ can of water. Simmer covered.
After twenty minutes has gone by, pull your meat out of the oven...
... and throw that fucker in the pot for forty minutes, simmering covered...
... occasionally taking the cover off to just look at it.
This is the finished product. It was super moist and super easy... That's what she said.
