      It was excellent! Instead of sausage, I used leftover pork shoulder. This is my first time making Hoppin' John, and I'm gonna add it to my regular rotation of meals.

      For several years I have wanted to make Hoppin' John for New Year's Day, but for various reasons it never happened. This year I was determined to make it for NYD, so I checked out all the Hoppin' John recipes on this website and choose this recipe because of Paul Prudhomme. I am so glad I did; this recipe is fantastic! We loved it so much I made it again the following week. Thanks, Chocolati for posting this delicious recipe!
