Reviews forBlack-Eyed Peas with Ham
"I made this with ham hock. I did add a bit of garlic to it and served it over rice! Was so good with homemade corn bread. Good even when it's not on rice!"
"I saw this recipe for Hoppin' John and I just had to try it. I've always wanted to make this and I am glad I used this wonderful recipe. It was easy...... and very TASTY! I used ham broth that I made with the bone from my Christmas ham instead of the water, 1 clove of garlic instead of 3 and 1 teaspoon of seasoned salt (Tastefully Simple brand) instead of 2 teaspoons. It was a perfect New Year's Day meal ...... served with baby spinach sauteed in bacon drippings and corn bread. I'll be making this again!"
"I was afraid this would be bland and need some excitement, but it ended up quite tasty. I did simmer a hambone in it, which couldn't have hurt anything!"
