I tend to like spicier foods. My brother, who is a Junior in college, lives with me and he also likes things on the hot side. This dish was one our mother used to make that I liked, but even he will say my version is better.

How to Make Hoppin John My Way


  • 1In nonstick sauce pan cook sausage with onions and both kinds of pepper till veggies are tender. Drain grease from the meat & mix in both cans of black eyed peas (liquid too) and rice. It's that easy.
  • 2I don't add a lot of salt or pepper to this recipe because the saltiness & heat of the sausage pretty much covers it for me. Sometimes when I'm browning the sausage I will sprinkle on some soul seasoning or cajun seasoning also. Just depends on my mood.
  • 3This is good also to serve the next day after the flavors have melded together, but I would wait and add the rice after reheating.
