This is a quick and easy appetizer that I received from a friend and tweaked to make it my own... I use a combination of hot and sweet bulk Italian sausage, which is easy to find in Upstate New York, where I live. If you cannot find bulk Italian sausage, buy links, remove the casings and squeeze out the sausage to cook. Don't be thrown off by the strange ingredient combination, these taste wonderful and your guests will be shocked when you share the recipe!

Sunflower seeds are a low cost, healthy, and earth-friendly ingredient. This recipe creates seeds that are good as a snack and are especially popular with my family and friends as a salad topper. Commercially roasted sunflower seeds are good, but like all seeds and nuts, they degrade over time and so fresh roasted is much, much better. You can also replace the salt with Cajun Seasoning or add powdered garlic. Consider a tablespoon or more of brewer's yeast--delicious!
Black-eyed peas bring a Southern flair to a Latin favorite.
