Black eyed pea cakes

Black eyed pea cakes


1/2 onion, finely chopped
red bell pepper, finely chopped
2 ribs celery, finely chopped 
2 (1-ounce) slices Canadian bacon, finely chopped 
2 (15-ounce) cans black eyed peas, rinsed and drained 
1/4 cup all-purpose flour 
2 tablespoons canola oil 


Spray a large nonstick skillet with nonstick spray and set over medium-high heat. Add onion, bell pepper, and celery and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 8-10 minutes. (If the mixture gets too dry, add 2 – 3 tablespoons of water). Stir in bacon. Transfer the mixture to a small bowl. Wipe the skillet clean.

Mash black eyed peas in a large bowl until coarsely mashed. Add onion mixture and flour until well combined. Shape the mixture into 6 (3‑inch) patties.

Heat oil in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Add the patties and cook until browned and crisp, about 4 minutes per side.
