Now that Christmas is over, thoughts turn to New Years. Here is a spiced up recipe for a New Years Day traditional dish. Black-eyed Peas are supposed to bring you good luck in the coming year.

1 lb. Black-eyed Peas

10-12 cups Water

2 tbsp. Vegetable Oil

1 large Onion, chopped

1 Bell Pepper,  chopped

2 tsp. Cajun Seasoning

Salt and Black Pepper to taste

1 lb. Andouille

1/2 cup Parsley

2 Bay Leaves

Ham bone or Ham hock

Heat oil in large pot on medium-high heat. Add onions and bell pepper. Sauté until wilted, about 5 minutes. Slice the sausage into 1/2-inch pieces and brown in a heavy skillet. Add sausage to the beans. Add the hambone, peas, and seasonings. Add enough water to cover peas and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook one hour or until the peas are creamy and tender. Add additional water if necessary during cooking.Enjoy!!!
