Black Eyed Peas with Bacon and Red Wine Vinegar

I love having a collection of side dish recipes that call for basic pantry ingredients. Savory Black-Eyed Peas with Bacon and Red Wine Vinegar is just that sort of recipe! And it tastes delicious!

I have made this dish many times, and it is delicious ( I know, I say everything is "delicious", but it stands to reason I would not post food recipes that were just so-so or worse, not worth your belly space!). And it is adaptable. You can use canned peas or cook up some peas in your own kitchen. Either way, make them, you won't be sorry! Personally, I love the tang of the red wine vinegar with the peas and bacon.

We have come to enjoy beans as a side dish more often than we do as a main dish. The tangy red wine vinegar in this recipe pairs nicely with most meats, but especially baked ham. I hope you give Savory Black-Eyed Peas with Bacon and Red Wine Vinegar a try, I think you will be pleasantly surprised!

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • black-eyed peas
  • red wine vinegar
  • bacon
  • salt
  • freshly ground pepper
You will also need the following:
  • medium-sized saucepan
  • measuring cup
Now we are ready to begin!

Black-eyed Peas with Red Wine Vinegar and Bacon.

Savory Black-Eyed Peas with Bacon and Red Wine Vinegar
