Black Eye Peas and Ham {Slow Cooker}


In the South, black eye peas are a must for New Years.  They are said to bring you good luck in the new year.  I am not one to tempt fate, so we always eat black eye peas on New Years Day.  This year I am going to make this recipe in my slow cooker.  They couldn't be any easier.  You don't have to soak the beans, just rinse them off and put them in the slow cooker.  We served the peas with some extra ham and cornbread.  You can get the cornbread recipe here.

  3. We always have the peas, too.
    I made your sausage cheese puffs for Christmas morning and they were sooo good. I have them in my post today with a link back to you.

  5. lori5, I am going to guess and say you could do it either way. I am going to substitute smoked sausage and I will fry mine a bit first just to cook out some of the grease.
