My friend cooked this recipe for black eyed peas and ham and it was scrumptious. Everyone loved it. He had to make it in a hurry so he used chopped ham chunks from the food market in a bag and it was still delicious. Great recipe and a good to go for any social where you have to bring something...

I make this every year but I omit the Teriyaki Sauce and use the Ham Bone leftover from our Christmas Dinner. Soooo Goood. I also make Collard Greens and Cornbread....The perfect New Years Feast! Thanks for Sharing this definitely is a keeper.
