My husband, Mark, absolutely LOVES this recipe. I always make it on New Year's Day. It's said to bring good luck for the whole year. So far, it hasn't been wrong! Happy New Year!

Black-eyed peas are delicious. But add bacon to them... and you have a winner. Everything is seasoned just right in this recipe. Can't wait to start my new year with this yummy meal. The Test Kitchen
