Recipe by MAJIX
"I make these with leftover cooked black-eyed peas cooked with ham hocks or smoked turkey from New Year's. I sometimes top with a fried green tomato or left over candied yams. Get creative with them. I've tried several variations. This is the basic version."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

canned black-eye peas, rinsed and drained
chopped roasted red peppers
all-purpose flour, or as needed
salt and black pepper to taste
grew up mighty poor, meat was scarce on our table. my dad used to take the peas, mash them up and put all the seasonings you would use to make sausage, sometimes including some red pepper flakes, added some flour i think, anyway made them into patties and fried them up in bacon grease, He called it pea sausage,,you would never guess it wasn't sausage. My dad has been gone many years, I still make them sometime
these were really good, I had some leftover black eyed peas that needed to get used up- they were dry beans, of course soaked and cooked. I used my hand blender to mash them, but left some a partly unmashed. I also roasted the red peppers myself. Next time I make them I think I will add more flour, so they stick together better. Also I think they need a little bit of sauce. I will try a few out next time and see what I like best.
Tasty! I used blackeyed peas with jalapenos which added just enough spice. My family loved them and say that the recipe is a keeper. The texture is very soft and I would like to make it a bit firmer.
Good recipe but I needed a LOT more than 3 TBS of flour. I frequently "guesstimate" my measurements but I think I used about 1 cup of flour to 3 cups of mashed peas. The mixture still never reached a consistency where I could make patties. I dropped a huge spoonful of batter into the hot pan, waited for one side to cook, and then turned it over with a spatula. I used the spatula to smash down the burger after flipping it to flatten it out some. With this change it is a really good basic recipe and a great way to use leftover beans or peas.
I was plesently surprised with these! I fixed up a batch and served them with some fish and eveyone really enjoyed them! I pattied them out alot smaller and it seemed to work out great! Thank you for sharing this recipe with us!
I improvised a little with ingredients on hand... but this was a great starting place! I also made more, smaller patties because I like the crunchy bits on the outside so much. :) Thanks for sharing!
Awe some!! Yum yum!!
These were exactly what I was looking for - a vegetarian burger as enjoyable and satisfying as meat. Like some reviewers, I did find that the flour was not enough, so after having prepared everything else as directed, I then added 1/2 C. unseasoned bread crumbs. I tried a small test patty and it didn't hold together very well. So I added one egg to the mix, and that seemed to help. The only other addition was that I added about 1/2 tsp. cayenne for a little kick. Delicious! I'll definitely make these again. Oh, and perhaps my patties were abnormally small, but I got one dozen patties from this recipe and froze the extra. I ate these on homemade buns with cheddar and a scoop of salsa. Thank you for a great recipe!!!
