These crockpot black eyed peas and collard greens are a perfect, southern, comfort food. The savory flavors from the smoked sausage, slow cooked with the peas and greens make for a perfect meal for New Year’s Day or any time of the year. I love cooking Southern, black-eyed peas, and this recipe is so simple, you will too.
This black eyed peas recipe is perfect comfort food. I put these in the crockpot on a Sunday and let them cook all day. I personally loved the collard greens in with my black eyed peas, but you can totally omit them from this recipe if you prefer. These peas slow cooked all day with the smoked sausage creates the most savory and filling southern dish. Serve it with some pepper sauce and cornbread for the perfect meal you’ll make all winter long!
Equipment You’ll Need
For these black eyed peas and collard greens, all you need is a large crockpot. That’s literally it! Mine is the crockpot brand one. You can get them at Walmart for like $20. They are super affordable.
Ingredients You’ll Need
Black Eyed Peas:
I used two one-pound bags of dried black-eyed peas. You could use canned, but they may overcook.
I used about 3 cups of chopped collard greens. I like collards for this recipe, but you can totally omit them altogether if you wish. You also could use the green of your choice.
I used a package of smoked sausage. It was a 14-ounce package. You can use more or less.
