Black eyed peas bring luck for the new year, so why not eat them to start the day? This recipe is an adaptation of Hoppin’ John, a traditional Southern food. I really liked this recipe and would definitely make it again. It had a lot of flavor and made a tasty breakfast.
1/2 c. cooked ground sausage, or other cooked meat or meat-substitute
1 can black eyed peas, drained and rinsed
Boil potatoes for 15 minutes, and drain. In a large frying pan, heat the sausage until it begins to brown. Add the oil, onion, and potatoes. Once the onions begin to brown, stir in the black eyed peas and add the garlic salt and black pepper. Continue cooking until the mixture is browned.
