Black-Eyed Pea Supper Dish

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.

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.

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!
