2 years after first trying this recipie, I'm updating my review, but keeping the 5 star rating! This has become a staple recipie at our house - almost every week in cold or cool weather. It is SO easy to tweek & very forgiving : I've forgotten the water, used only water because no broth on hand, added & substituted link sausage, ham, barley, seasonings, various veggies, etc., doubled & tripled it & it ALWAYS turns out DELICIOUS! We often make this after work-done in 30 min. or less, or on days off I let it cook low & slow & it gets almost stew like. It's also a frequent request for work pot lucks (between this & 'clone of a cinnabon' also from AllRecipies-which, btw makes a nice companion/dessert with the Hoppin' John). If you have any left over it re-heats nicely as well(I have to make a double batch to have left overs) If friends know I'm making this, they've been known to invite themselves over for dinner, too!. I still can't thank you enough for this recipie!
