Happy New Year Peas

  • 1 lb dried black-eyed peas
  • 1 lb link sausage (or whatever your favorite sausage is)
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp prepared mustard
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup prepared barbecue sauce

Rinse, prepare, soak and cook peas in about 3 cups water, following directions on the package.  Drain and reserve half of the cooking liquid.  In a skillet over medium heat, brown sausage and onions; drain off excess fat.  Place peas in 3 quart casserole dish, add sausage and onions.  Stir in reserved liquid, brown sugar, mustard, salt and barbecue sauce.  Bake at 300 degrees for 1 – 1 1/2 hours.

This recipe sounds pretty good and a little different.  I’ll probably do what I always do and combine 2 or 3 different recipes to come up with my own.  I’ll let you know how it turned out.  I would love to know what YOU come up with too.
