BAKED BLACK-EYED PEAS AND SMOKED SAUSAGE

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.

Baked black-eyed peas with smoked sausage would be a great recipe for serving on New Years if you believe it is lucky to serve them on the first day of a new year.

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!

  1. I can’t find the cornbread recipe that you used with this specific meal. Can you point me to this recipe? It looks delicious and like a recipe my grandma used to make. Please help!

  2. A few changes…..four smaller colored peppers instead of large pepper, sliced sausage and then cut each piece into four pieces, a little sweet so cut back on the brown sugar to half a cup, used two cans of black eye peas but drained one. Baked covered for one hour and uncovered for one half hour. Everyone raved about the flavor and one said they tasted like baked beans but only better.5 stars

  3. I need serious help with cornbread. Follow the directions exactly making my usual adjustments for the RV oven. Still is nasty. My hubby loves cornbread but I’ve
    yet to master it. Can use all the help I can get!!! lol

    1. If you look on the right hand side of any page on this website and click on breads there are several cornbread recipes posted there. All you do is mix, pour in the pan and bake.

  4. Oh man! That sounds good! The other night I made some sweet cornbread,fried okra and black-eyed peas for my wife and i. we were just in the mood for some comfort food. Fried okra A.K.A. redneck popcorn! LOL! Enjoy all your recipes. Always fun reading your blog.
    Thanks
