I have a question about the recipe "Black-Eyed Pea Cassoulet" from Kayb. What kind of smoked sausage do you recommend? I grabbed kielbasa at the store--will it work or would you suggest another type? Planning to make it tomorrow!

When I made this dish I used a pork and beef-blend of kielbasa and it was absolutely delicious with it! Best of luck, happy cooking and Happy New Year!

Kielbasa should be just fine. But you could also think about andouille as black eyed peas (Hoppin' John) are really a southern thing.
