Black-eyed peas and Ham hocks
To ensure good luck, on New Year's Day eat:
Greens (collard, mustard, or turnip)
At least, that's how we do it down here.
1 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon bacon drippings
3 cups cooked black-eyed peas
1 cup chopped cooked ham
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
3 cups cooked rice
salt to taste
sliced sweet onion
In a large saucepan sauté chopped onion in bacon drippings until tender. Stir in black-eyed peas, ham, and cayenne pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes; stir in hot cooked rice and salt. Serve hot with sliced onion.
