Bean Cakes

Since every one eats Black Eyed Peas for New Years I thought I would share this great way to use the left overs. Hubby's Grandmother use to make these with any kind of beans she had left over.

Left over Black eyed peas and juice
One small diced onion
Sage, salt and pepper to taste
Enough flour to make them hold together when fried. (This can not be put as a certain measurement because it depends on the amount of liquid in the peas.)

I mix it together until it forms a kind of thick paste. I then fry them in a skillet in a little oil until brown on both sides.

If you use different beans I would try different kinds of spices. I love these the next day as bean cake sandwiches.
