History has it that if you eat this old Southern favorite of rice and black-eyed peas on New Year's Day, you'll have good luck all year. We don't know about that, but we think we should eat 'em all year-round for good measure!

What You'll Need:
  • 3 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black-eyed peas, undrained
  • 1 (6.2-ounce) package quick long-grain rice, seasoning packet included
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
What To Do:
  1. In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, cook bacon until crisp, stirring often. Add celery and onion; cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until vegetables are tender, stirring constantly.
     
  2. Stir in chicken broth and peas; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes.
     
  3. Stir in rice and thyme. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 5 to 7 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.
Notes

Make this a complete Southern feast by serving it up with a side of our Creamed Collard Greens.

Love Hoppin' John and have made it for years. Will try this recipe..LOVE southern cooking

Oooops, one more thing. Put a dime in the meal and the person who finds it is insured to be rich. Fun thing to do with kids. Yes, boil the dime first.

Cute!

Husky Roasted Corn

Native Americans cooked their corn right in the husks over an open fire, and we think their idea is still best, 'cause it helps bring out flavors you can only get from roasting. We love making our Husky Roasted Corn right on the grill in the summer, and in our ovens when it's cooler out!
