Baked Black-Eyed Peas and Smokied Sausage TSLC - CopyThis recipe for Baked Black-Eyed Peas and Smoked Sausage goes great with some cornbread, turnip greens and boiled eggs. Don’t forget the sweet tea!  Southerners love their black-eyed peas and this family loves them, too.  You can make this with dried, frozen or canned black-eyed peas.  I made this recipe with the dried cooked peas.

1 1/2 cups dried black-eyed peas, (cooked according to package directions) or two 14 ounce cans, undrained.  or you could use frozen peas.

1 small onion, chopped

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard

2 tablespoons tomato ketchup

1 tablespoon molasses or syrup

1/2 cup chopped green pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 pound smoked sausage, sliced in rounds

Cook dried peas according to package directions leaving about 1/2 cup of the soup and draining the rest.  Add the chopped onion, brown sugar, mustard, ketchup, molasses, salt, pepper and sausage. Stir all ingredients together in a 2 quart baking dish and bake covered in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.  Remove cover and bake another 15 minutes. Makes 6 to 8 servings. Enjoy!
