Ingredients
  • Oil, for deep frying
  • 1 1/2 pounds black eyed peas, cooked (canned works equally as well)

  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Directions

In a large, deep frying pan, heat about 1/2-inch of oil to 350 degrees F.

Mash cooked peas in a large mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Shape into fritters, whatever size you desire. Carefully add fritters to the hot oil and fry until golden on 1 side. Carefully turn fritters over and continue frying until golden on the second side and cooked through in the middle. Remove and let drain on paper towels. Serve.
