Southern Black Eyed Peas - The original recipe used salt pork, but this uses bacon. Grab a bowl of these peas, a dash of Tabasco, a slab of hot-from-the-oven cornbread, some green onions and tomato slices and dig in!
Emeril Lagasse’s Smoked Sausage and Black-Eyed Peas - made for New Years dinner, soooo good! Made meatballs out of Jimmy Dean hot pork sausage. Haven't been a huge fan of black eyed peas in the past but I will be making this more often than once a year.
I love this recipe because it's easy, quick and so versatile. You can change the herbs & spices to make it to your liking. One of our favorite alternatives uses Cajun spices. The blackeyed pea portion is even better if made ahead & reheated while the rice is cooking the day it's served.
