This recipe comes from the label of Ranch Style Brand Blackeye Peas Seasoned with Bacon. To me it is a classic southern dish served any time of the year. It is so changeable; add ground meat or sausage and it becomes a 1 pot main course or leave it as is for a great side. Plus add your own spices and/or peppers for a kick. I just love this dish and I am sure you will too. Enjoy.
