Total Time: 1 1/2 hours
Servings: 8


  • 6 strips bacon, cut into pieces
  • 1 package (8 ounces) fresh sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup chopped shallots (about 3 large)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) black-eyed-peas, drained and rinsed well
  • 1 can (14 ounces) chicken broth (divided)

Here's how to make it:

  1. Cook the bacon in a skillet until crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon to a bowl.

  4. Pour the mixture into a 13x9-inch baking pan. Bake in preheated 350-degree F oven for about 45 minutes.
  5. Remove the pan from the oven. Add the remaining chicken broth and start stirring in the spinach leaves.
  6. One the spinach as wilted down, stir in the cheese.
  7. Bake another 20 to 30 minutes, stirring a couple of times during cooking.
