"I couldn't find a Hoppin' John recipe I really cared for, so I threw this together to enjoy black-eyed peas for New Year's."

This is a wonderful rendition of Hoppin John! I've made this as the recipe directed for New Years Day, as per Southern Tradition. This dish is so yummy, it has the power for good luck AND for converting folks that do not like black-eyed peas! Thanks for a great recipe...
I pretty much followed the recipe as is, with the one exception of using quick cooking whole grain rice. It cut the cooking time down to about 15 minutes and it was great! My husband asked that I definitely keep this recipe around. Very easy and seems like a good recipe to try variations with to keep it fresh. I added the picture so others can see how good it looks!
This has become a family favorite. We usually crock-pot it. I added some left over ham last time and that added a nice flavor. I've shared it with a number of folks, who all are making it now!
Easy & versatile. I almost had all the ingredients for this & was looking for a recipe to use black-eyed peas. I used smoked beef sausage diced up in place of the bulk sausage, diced tomatoes without green Chiles, long grain brown rice, a yellow bell pepper and Emerils BAM seasoning with a pinch of cayenne in place of the Cajun seasoning because it's what I happened to have on hand. Followed instructions as written and it came out perfect. Great belly-warming dinner on a cold Feb nite. Plus with a 45 min simmer time I got a nice little workout on the treadmill!
The addition of tomato was nice! Simple and I had all the ingredients to make it in my kitchen. I omitted the bell pepper due to allergy.
