READY IN: 10hrs 15mins

Every New Years Day for about 5 years I sent this out the the Maintenance men at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, along with a big pan of cornbread, and the slow cooker always came home empty! It's good luck for New Years.

carole, my husband and I loved your Hoppin' John! I am a vegetarian so I elimainated the ham and added a ham-like flavoring. We really enjoyed this topped with hot sauce! Thanks for a great way to use those black-eyed peas and collard greens!
