This is one of our favorite cool weather dishes - it's so good with cornbread! The recipe came from Bush's. It's one I never really tinker with, and that's unusual for me. The ingredients are just right in the original.
- 1⁄2 lb bulk pork sausage
- 1⁄2 cup green pepper, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup onion, chopped
- 1 cup canned tomato
- 1⁄4 teaspoon oregano
- 1⁄4 teaspoon rosemary
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
- 1 (15 7/8 ounce) can black-eyed peas (do not drain)
- 1 cup cheese, grated (cheddar, co-jack, etc.)
- Brown sausage in large skillet, crumbling with fork as it browns. Drain any accumulated fat.
- Add green pepper & onion to skillet with sausage and cook for 5 minutes.
- Add tomatoes & seasonings, stir well.
- Pour in blackeyed peas with the liquid in the can. Cover & simmer for 15 minutes.
- Serve hot with grated cheese on top.
This was delicious. I didn't pay too much mind to measuring quantities, except for the sausage. I used spicy breakfast sausage. I would have loved to include mushrooms, but I didn't have any. It didn't make a lot, but it would be simple to add more sausage and beans to increase the quantity. I send Rotel tomatoes and threw in the whole can, minus the liquid. This dish was a pleasant surprise.
My husband and I had this last night. Quick, easy and good.
I had made this years ago and had a hankering for it, but couldn't remember the recipe exactly, so I was glad you had posted. I had to use Italian spiced diced tomatoes as that is what I had on hand, but I still added the spices as listed. I also used spicy breakfast sausage which gave it a great kick, but would be good with mild sausage as well. Served over rice was a great meal on a cold night! Thanks for sharing LitaLou!
