Black Eyed Peas are a must every New Years Day & this should be your go to recipe. This year I decided to try a new recipe & let me tell you it is so, so good and all made in the Instant Pot.
Black Eyed Pea tradition…
Every year my parents would make black eyed peas for New Years Day with cornbread, this is my favorite cornbread recipe. My mom would always use the leftover ham from Christmas which made the black eyed peas AMAZING! For this recipe I used ham and smoked sausage. I mean why not make them even better.
What is your New Year’s Day tradition?
Perfect in the Instant Pot
Black Eyed Peas can take a while to cook. Growing up my mom would cook them all day and we would have them for dinner… but wow how things have changed. These beans are done in under a hour. Yes, you read that right done in under a hour.
This recipe is just one of the many reasons why I love my Instant Pot more and more each time I use it.
Better the next day
Don’t get me wrong these are amazing the minute they come out but the next day they are even better. The flavors come together the longer it sits and makes for a complex, perfectly seasoned black eyed pea dish you will want to make again and again.
If they get too thick as they sit you can heat them up on the stove and add in chicken stock or water to get them to the consistency you desire. You can also add in some kale or collard greens as well to make it a soup perfect for the winter. Black eyed peas are not just for New Years anymore.
It is Black Eyed Pea time…
