This 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!
