    WhisperFate's Note:

    The amount of liquid, and cooking time, should reflect the cooking instructions for your rice. Uncle Bens, which we had on hand, called for 1 1/3 cups liquid. This is why these exact amounts are listed in the recipe. Depending upon the rice you choose to use. The liquid you need may differ. I wouldn't use a "sticky" rice in this recipe. It would probably not turn out well. Note: I didn't have to use any salt. The ham broth I chose and the Canadian bacon (I felt) brought more then enough salt to the dish. I, and my family, have all kinds of different serious food allergies. [Corn, dairy, and everything in the onion family, as well as celery! Boo! :( ] This makes cooking one meal the whole family can enjoy very difficult to say the least! This recipe may not be for everyone, but we enjoy it, I hope someone else might find it tasty as well. Feel free to use whatever beans you like too! I've made this with Pinto beans and it's come out wonderfully as well!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 cup rice, uncooked (I used Uncle Bens)
    • 1 cup ham stock (I used Penzy's ham base to make the ham broth)
    • 1/3 cup water
    • 1/2 cup Canadian bacon, fully cooked, chopped (your favorite brand)
    • 1 (15 1/2 ounce) can black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
    • salt and pepper, to taste (optional)


    1. 1
      Prepare the 1 cup ham broth if using a base, or bullion. Make sure the base is well dissolved before adding to cooking pot. (I used 1 teaspoons Penzy's ham base to 1 cup water.).
    2. 2
      Chop Canadian Bacon into small pieces so you will get a little in each bite. Drain and rinse black eye peas. Set both aside.
    3. 3
      Add 1/3 cup water to pot, add prepared ham broth, and add the half cup of uncooked rice. Bring rice liquid to a boil over medium high heat, then stir in black eye peas and ham. As soon as rice liquid returns to a boil, cover pot, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook to rice directions. (Uncle Bens was 20 minutes. Your time may be slightly different.).
    4. 4
      NOTE: If your rice mixture looks too dry near the end, you can mix in a little water, or ham broth to make it more moist. If it's way too wet you can uncover mixture, stir, and cook a little longer until some of the excess moisture evaporates.
