Georgia Caviar


There are many variations of this delicious appetizer but my favorite has been of the Georgia variety.  Perhaps it is the bulldog in me whose blood runs red and black, perhaps it is my love of black eyed peas or just maybe it is that I have impecable taste!

Call it what you will, this recipe is stellar!

I was recently in Atlanta hanging out with my brother's in-laws and as soon as Julie put this down in front of me I started shoveling....so ferociously in fact that I think I might have scared the people around me.

It was so delicious that before I even knew what was going on I had inhaled half the bowl and sauce was dripping down my arm.  Pretty picture, right?

Aside from being super yummy, this falls into the category of easy to prepare, can be made ahead of time, doesn't need to be heated up before a party....pretty much all of the necessities for a good party dish!
