Okay, so yesterday I shared with you one of my favorite New Year’s Eve menus. Now let’s dig in to my family’s favorite New Year’s menu. It’s a must-have around my house and includes all of the favorites served while I was growing up, along with a few new favorite additions I’ve added along the way!

There is a lot of tradition placed on our New Year’s menu here in the South. The main cast of characters that had better show up on my table and the tables of generations before me has always been ham, greens, black-eyed peas, and potatoes.

The greens are said to represent money and black-eyed peas represent good luck and prosperity in the new year. Eating a combination of the two is a requirement around my house!
