Fancy Peas... these peas are THE BEST around! Seriously, this will be one side dish that is talked about and requested every single time!

USE BROWN RICE INSTEAD OF WHITE RICE. Southern Black-Eyed Peas Recipe with Bacon

Made these last night. The recommended time in the oven wasn't quite enough to get them as crispy as I like, so I turned the broiler on high for 2 minutes when the time was up and they were perfect

Ingredients 4 slices bacon, diced into small pieces 1 small onion, peeled and chopped 2 cloves garlic, minced 2 (15-ounce) cans diced tomatoes 1 tablespoon chicken base 1 tablespoon sugar 2 cups fresh okra, cut into 1-inch pieces (may use frozen, if fresh not available) Fresh ground black pepper Directions Cook bacon slightly. Saute onion and garlic with bacon until tender. Add tomatoes, chicken base, sugar and pepper. Stir well and let simmer for about 20 minutes. Adjust seasoning if needed. Meanwhile wash okra and remove fuzz if using fresh and cut into pieces. Add the okra and simmer until okra is done, about 20 more minutes (less if using frozen okra.)
