Black Eyed Pea Fritters

Usually when you make Peas you have “Left Overs”. This is a way to use those left overs and make a different meal or appetizer. I love this because after the new year I have left over Black Eyed Peas and I usually don’t want to reheat them. This is simple, easy and makes a great new dish to enjoy. This is a simple mixture to make and you can add in other seasonings or flavors to it to dress it up some. I will give you the basic recipe and you can add other things to make it your own. Hope this helps you find a new way to use up those left over peas or beans from last night. Hope you enjoy!
1 Egg, Beaten lightly
1/4 Onion,  diced fine
2 c. Black Eyed Peas ( cooked and/or left over from night before)
Salt and Pepper ( to taste)
6 to 8 Tbsp. Flour
Hot Sauce ( your favorite brand and use to your taste)
Vegetable or Canola Oil
(1) In a bowl beat the Egg lightly and add the Onion, Peas, Salt and pepper and Mix together well.005
(2) Add in the Flour 1 tbsp at a time until desired thickness is reached. The mixture should be slightly thickened and still pourable.  Mix well.006
(3) Add in the Hot Sauce and mix well. You can now add other things like Finely diced Bell Pepper or Minced Garlic. 007
(4) In a large Skillet add 2 or 3 tbsp vegetable or canola oil and let it heat up over medium low heat. When Ready and pan is hot add in 2 tbsp of the mixture and cook  3 to 4 minutes on side 1 to brown the edges. Using a spatula gently and carefully flip over the fritters and allow them to cook 3 to 4 more minutes on side 2.  When both sides are golden brown remove from the pan and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain and cool. Can add more oil only if needed. Add too much oil and the fritters will be oily and heavy. 008
(5) When cooled slightly  place the fritters on a serving dish and serve with Hot sauce, Ketchup or desired Sauce. 010
