Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Canned black-eyed peas and crisply cooked diced bacon are combined with celery, onion, green pepper and stewed tomatoes in this good luck soup traditionally served on New Year 's Eve.

INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):


  • In a large pot over medium high heat, saute the bacon until crisp. Set aside the bacon and drain the fat, reserving about 4 tablespoons of the fat in the pot. Add the celery onion and green bell pepper to the pot and saute in the bacon fat for 10 minutes, or until tender.
  • Add the peas, consomme and stewed tomatoes and allow to heat through, about 15 more minutes. Top with crumbled bacon when serving.
