DIRECTIONS

  • Saute the purple onion, red bell pepper, and jalapeno pepper in butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until tender. Remove from heat; set aside, and let it cool slightly.
  • Mash the black-eyed peas in a large bowl. Add the onions, red bell pepper, and jalapeno to the black-eyed peas. Add the breadcrumbs, egg yolks, cilantro, garlic, cumin, mustard, oregano, thyme, and salt. Stir well. Shape the mixture into 12 2-1/2 inch patties. Dredge the patties in cornmeal.
  • Fry half of the patties in 2 tbsp oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat for 3 to 4 minutes on each side (depending on the heat of your stove), or until lightly browned. Transfer to a serving plate; set aside, and keep warm. Repeat with the remaining patties and other 2 tbsp oil.
  • Top each patty with 1 tbsp sour cream; sprinkle with green onions. Serve with salsa.
