Smoked Sausage and Black-Eyed Peas

I love Black-Eyed Peas and I found this Smoked Sausage and Black-Eyed Peas recipe a few years back from the New Orlean’s Master Chef, Emeril. Everyone knows that I love Emeril Lagasse and I’ve been making black eyed peas for many years… but I like to change up my recipes from time to time, depending on my mood and what’s on hand in my kitchen.

I must say, I think this version of Smoked Sausage and Black-Eyed Peas is one of  the best recipe for black eyed peas that I have ever tasted! The seasoning is perfect. As a bonus, it is very easy to make! Yum!

A delicious pot of Black-Eyed Peas is always good for the soul anytime of year.
