BBQ Side Item: Black Eyed Pea Cakes

Smoke & Spice has a nice recipe for Black Eyed Pea Cakes on page 265. My compliments to Cheryl and Bill Jamison for sharing this recipe. It's a great side item that goes well with all types of barbecue meats.
Black Eyed Pea Cakes


2 cups black eyed peas
1/2 cup saltine cracker crumbs
2 T minced red bell pepper
2 T minced onion
1 T minced fresh parsley
1 egg yolk
2 Tsp picked jalapeno, mayonaise, yellow mustard
1 garlic clove

1/2 cup saltine cracker crumbs
1 T butter
1 T vegetable oil

Following the recipe, puree 1 cup of black eyed peas and add 1 cup of black eyed peas in cake mixture and refrigerate for one hour. Remove and coat in cracker mixture. Fry in butter and oil mixture in skillet before smoking for 30 minutes.

They are excellent when served with a mustard based bbq sauce.
