Charleston Hopping John


Every Southerner knows that you must eat black eye peas on New Year's Day in order to have good luck in the new year. Chicken Legs & I need all the help we can get with good luck - so we are loading up on black eye peas this year!  I saw this recipe over at Lick the Bowl Good and thought we would give it a try.  This is really good and really easy.  I added 1/4 tsp of cumin since we were eating this with mojo marinated flank steak.  Try it today so you can have good luck in 2010!

adapted from Lick the Bowl Good
(Printable Recipe)

1 c. rice, cooked
1 can black eyed peas
3 slices bacon (crumbled) *I used turkey bacon
1/4 c. onions
Dash of Dale's Seasoning or soy sauce
1/4 tsp. thyme
1/4 tsp. poultry seasoning
1/4 tsp. cumin
Salt and pepper to taste

Cook rice. While rice is cooking, fry the bacon. Pour off some of the grease. Add onions, saute with bacon. You may use some pea juice from the peas to cook onions. Add soy sauce, thyme poultry seasoning, cumin, salt, and pepper. Add peas, then fold in rice.
