Description:

Ingredients

2 (15.5-ounce) cans blackeyed peas
½ cup chopped Schwab’s sausage
¼ cup roasted red bell peppers
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
¼ teaspoon ground cumin
1 egg, beaten
¼ to ½ cup Shawnee Mills All-Purpose Flour
½ cup Shawnee Mills Yellow Corn Meal
Suan’s Scotch Bonnet Pepper Jelly
 

Instructions

In a large bowl, mash blackeyed peas with a potato masher or the back of a large spoon. Add sausage, red peppers, jalapeno, cumin and egg. Mix until combined. Add flour, incorporating until firm enough to shape into cakes. Let sit in the refrigerator for about 1 hour to firm. Shape into round patties. Pat each cake into cornmeal, to give a light coating. Heat oil in in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the patties until crispy and brown on both sides. Serve with Suan’s Scotch Bonnet Pepper Jelly.
