Lazy Repost: New Years black-eyed peas
I boiled the black-eyed peas with some left-over ham chunks for flavor.
Instead of sausage links, I used Gaspar's Portuguese-style linguica sausage. It is mild flavor and can be found with the smoke sausages at the Kroger in Barboursville.
I cut the sausages into half-inch thick disks.

Add the other ingredients...
Stir 'em up and put 'em in the oven...
And now it's time to eat!!!
This pea recipe was da bomb (yes, I'm bringing that back). It tasted sort-of like a home-made baked pea recipe, but with the nutty, earthy taste of black-eyed peas and a salty-sweet zing from the linguica. This recipe was plenty sweet, so I would advise against using any sort of honey-flavored bbq sauce or mustard. I dashed a little Frank's Red Hot on mine, but if everyone in your family likes some heat in their food, some diced jalapeno added to the recipe would work, too. As for beverage pairings, I'd go with a citrus soda, a sturdy lager, riesling, or a sparkling white wine.
