Southern Hoppin’ John
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Cook: 30 min.
I made this as part of our family’s New Years meal using the last of our Honeybaked Ham in place of the bacon & it was absolutely delicious! I’ll definitely be making it again!
I have made this many times and it is delicious just as written. Sometimes I add a couple of cloves of finely chopped garlic and instead of cayenne I substitute a pinch of red pepper flakes. Also, a few slices of smoked hog jowl, fried, in place of the bacon gives the dish an extra depth of smoky flavor. Excellent with cornbread, although my late husband preferred biscuits. Eat this on New Year's Day and you will surely have good luck!
After refreshing the page the peas showed up in the list. That was weird. Making this tonight. Will update.
I have been searching for years for a decent Hoppin’ John recipe. I wanted to keep the New Years tradition going since my Mother in law crossed over. The only change I made was to use chicken broth instead of water. This is THE RECIPE from here on out. Usually I printed 2-3 different recipes to get a decent dish. This one is fabulous!
This was quick and easy and tasty! I will definitely make again!

I had forgotten all about this recipe until it came out in the Dec 2016 issue. I used to make this all of the time . This version has celery while the one I used to make does not. I did add the celery and made as written; except I made mine today meatless and I added 1.5 cups shredded cheese....just like I used to make. My family thinks cheese makes everything better and it does!
