(2 Votes)
12 Min

Hoppin' John is a traditional dish that brings a real kick to the new year with hot rice, peppery peas, and crispy bacon. Hope this quick version of Easy New Year's Hoppin' John brings you luck.

What You'll Need

  • 4 slices bacon, diced
  • 1 medium-sized onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (15.5-ounce) can black-eyed peas
  • 3 cups hot cooked rice

What to Do

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the bacon, onion, salt, and pepper over medium heat. Cook 10 to 12 minutes, or until bacon is crisp and onion is golden, stirring frequently.
  2. Reduce heat to low. Stir in black-eyed peas and rice; continue stirring mixture for 2 to 3 minutes, or until heated through.


I like to sprinkle in a few drops of hot pepper sauce to give it an added kick, but be sure everybody likes it that way first!

Your guess will LOVE it. Take my word for it. I was raised eating Blackeyed Peas & Rice. It is so good that we had it all through the year, not just on New Year Day.

Great recipe! I cannot wait to make it for my guests on New Years.
