HOW TO MAKE BEST DISH WITH LEFTOVER BLACK-EYED PEAS

BEST LEFTOVER BLACK-EYED PEAS

This recipe was inspired by trying to think of a way to use some of the leftover black-eyed peas and rice.  This is similar to how I make Rice and Eggs.   I start with a southern favorite, bacon, add some rice in the pan, and then add the black-eyed peas.  It is easy and delicious.   This is one of those recipes that does not need a recipe.  Just use equal amounts of rice and peas.

Serve this dish with melt in your mouth Southern Buttermilk Cornbread or Broccoli & Cheese Cornbread.  What a great combination.

BEST Left Over Black-Eyed Peas
 
Ingredients
  • 4 to 5 slices of bacon cooked hard, crumbled
  • One small onion chopped fine
  • 2 cups of rice, cooked according to directions
  • 2 cups of black-eyed peas
  • ¼ tsp Cajun seasoning
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp granulated garlic
Instructions
  1. In a large skillet cook bacon until it becomes hard enough to crumble.
  2. Remove from the pan, cool, and crumble it up. Do not remove the bacon grease from the pan. Caution: Keep the bacon under close watch to keep it from disappearing into eager stomachs until you are ready to add it back to the dish.
  3. Add the chopped onion to the bacon grease.
  4. Cook until the onions are tender.
  5. Add the rice, garlic seasoning, pepper, and Cajun seasonings.
  6. Cook for about 4 to 5 minutes.
  7. Add the black-eyed peas and bacon and cook until well heated.

    • Teresa,

      I hope you had a great Christmas and are doing well. I also pray you were able to get a lot of things done on your blog. I know how stressful that was. I will go visit and pin your new pictures.

      I will be co-hosting this link up every week starting at 9:00 pm central on Friday nights.
      Blessings,
