Black Eyed Peas, for Those Who Usually Don't Like Them,

Total Time

Nobody in my family, except me, likes black eyed peas. I learned a easy way to dress them up from my grandfather many years ago. May sound a little strange until you try it, but this recipe is addicting! I have made them with low fat mayo, and they were good. I have never tried fat free mayo. This recipe works very well with field peas too. You could easily add to this basic recipe to make all kinds of black eyed pea dishes.
