My grandmother and mother have made Hoppin John for as long as I can remember, and this is just as good (if not better). I must admit upfront that I have never been a fan and only eat it out of tradition's sake. However,as another user noted it is wonderfully rich and thick. I did try something different this year and did not stir the beans into the rice and think that it turned out better (just looked better). Also, I'm not certain why you need the cheese. Thank you for the recipe!
