“From The Essence of Emeril....Hoppin' John is a New Year's Southern Tradition:Black-Eyed Peas for good luck, ham or ham hock for good health, and the greens for financial success! I have tried several different recipes for this and so far, this is my favorite! I sometimes add chopped spinach or collard greens even though this particular recipe doesn't call for them, and it's so delish that way too! Happy New Year!!”
