BEST LEFTOVER BLACK-EYED PEAS

Leftover Black-Eyed Peas 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.
