Are you looking for traditional New Years Recipes? If so, I got you back with some of the best recipes.
Okay now that Christmas is over it's time to start thinking about New Year’s Day. If you want this year’s party to go well you must serve your guest some traditional New Year's Recipes. Why serve traditional recipes?
My simple answer is because your guests have grown to love and expect certain recipes to be served each year on the 1st of January. In my opinion you have to serve the all-time, New Year’s favorites, which include collard greens and black eyed peas at a minimum.
If you serve these two side dishes to your guest you can ensure they'll be blessed with plenty of money and luck throughout the new year. Below you will find a New Year’s menu that you will be proud to serve your guest.

Perfect fried chicken is crunchy and crispy on the outside. Tender and juicy on the inside. Break the hot sauce out the cabinets for some good eating.

Black Eyed Peas
These peas can be cooked separately or with rice as hoppin' john. Black eyed peas is a popular soul food dish that many black folks look forward to eating on New Year's day. This is one of three must have New Years recipes.

This cornbread is often baked in a cast iron skillet and sometimes
seasoned with bacon fat. This bread is a go to staple that is served with
many soul food like collard greens and beans.

Honey Baked Ham
You don't have to spend all your money buying an expensive prepared
ham from the store. You can bake your own ham at home, that will taste
just as good as a store bought one.
5 / 15
Most often cooked with ham hocks, but sometimes salt pork, who doesn't love collard greens? When it's time to eat just pass the vinegar, hot sauce, and reach for a piece of cornbread. Of all New Years recipes this is one you do not want to pass up.

We like to slow cook our barbecue ribs to the point where they
are so tender the meat will fall off the bone. You don't need a smoker,
you can use a regular charcoal grill to make melt-in-your mouth barbecue.

Red Velvet Cake
This is an incredible dessert with a cream cheese frosting. Although
most reserved for holidays and special occasions you can prepare this

Although controversial, the cleaned and prepared intestines of a hog
is a southern delicacy, if you can stand the smell. These cuts of pork are
slow-cooked and often eaten with vinegar and hot sauce. The chitlins
are sometimes parboiled, then battered and fried. Another one of my favorite New Years recipes.

Pork Neck Bones and Rice
Pork neck bones and rice is classic comfort food for us southern folks.
Pour on the thick gravy for a filling meal. Neck bones can be served over rice or with boiled potatoes.

Pulled Pork Sandwiches
In my house, slow cooked and tender shredded pork sandwiches
is a family favorite. For a nice snack, we'll serve these up on New Year's
day a few hours before we eat our main meal.
11 / 15
Chocolate Pecan Pie
Have you ever had classic pecan pie with a twist? Add in chocolate and
coconut for a delightfully tasting dessert. But don't just eat one
slice of pie, you'll want to eat two.

Stuffed Cornish Hens
If you're tired of roasted turkey, you should try stuffed Cornish hen. When roasted to perfection these little birds are tender, juicy, and taste so delicious.

Banana pudding is one of the best desserts you will ever taste. Freshly sliced bananas, vanilla wafers, and a few other ingredients are combined to me a creamy and rich dessert.
14 / 15
Macaroni and Cheese
The comfort food macaroni and cheese is a staple of soul food cooking.
Tender noodles with rich and creamy cheese is browned in the oven for some homemade crispy goodness.

These tasty deviled treats by far are probably the second most popular appetizer, beating out many of the other party favorites such a jalapeno poppers, meatballs, and vegetable trays.
