Black-Eyed Peas With Sausage

Total Time

Okay, I've comepletely changed this recipe, so it is no longer from the Southern Living 1986 Annual Recipe book. Please ignore the rating, it comes from the recipe that was originally here. The recipe you will find here now is how I usually fix black-eyed peas, although the amounts are guesstimates, since I rarely measure ingredients unless I am trying a new recipe. This recipe goes well with cornbread, rice or stewed tomatoes. You can leave out the sausage if you like.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a dutch oven until hot. Add the onion, celery, garlic, and bell pepper and cook until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 40--45 minutes.

I've been making black-eyed peas on New Years for 40 years, but this was the best recipe yet. My family loved it and I'll make it more often I did use frozen peas and added canned for more volume. I also added a can of Rotel in place of some of the spices. Easy and great! Thanks

Excellent! I had to change one thing though. I only had dried black-eyed peas. I soaked them overnight and had to simmer for 1½ hours. Otherwise, I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks.
