Carole's Crowder Peas

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by carole in orlando

If you like beans and corn bread, or rice this is a nice lunch or supper dish. It's a complete meal by itself or as a side dish. The hot sauce we like is Glory Brand.

This was a hearty delicious way to fix Crowder Peas. A great way to get fiber and vegetables in one dish. I usually follow first time recipes to the letter. I did in this case. It was very tasty. Since it made several servings, I shared with my friend and neighbor. She and her husband raved about it. She said she will make it this way in the future. Thumbs Up!
