Growing up in the South, there were always black-eyed peas on the dinner table made by my grandmother. Traditionally, she made these beans by slowly cooking the peas in a large pot with either bacon or most commonly a ham hock and seasonings. You will usually find these served on New Year's Day as they are thought to bring good luck and, regardless if they do, they are delicious! If you are a vegetarian like me, omit the bacon in this recipe and simmer the beans in a vegetable broth to add more flavor.
Once these black-eyed peas are cooked they can be served many ways. Here are a few ways we enjoy eating them.
