Living in the South means that you should know how to cook black eyed peas.  This slow cooker black eyed peas with bacon recipe is so easy, and the peas tastes like they have been cooking all day on the stovetop (and while they have been cooking all day, the slow cooker does it all for you).

If you are not from the South, you might not know this.  But we take New Years Day meals very seriously.  And I have taken to this tradition, because why not?  

I personally love the collard greens, black eyed peas and ham that is served for New Years Day dinner.

Ingredients you will need for this recipe

My grandmother also doesn’t eat turkey or chicken, so we had ham for Christmas dinner.  

No one in my family wanted ham again for New Years day, so we switched things up and had BBQ chicken (my grandmother ate seared pork chops) instead.

Substitutions you can use for this recipe

You can use canned black eyed peas, if you don’t have or can’t find the dry variety.  2 cans of black eyed peas (drained and rinsed) will work well.

If you are interested in additional slow cooker recipes, I highly suggest the slow cooker Moroccan chicken soup or slow cooker chicken tortilla soup.

You can also try this Hawaiian chicken recipe too. It’s also delicious.

Yes, it’s that easy!
