ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--New Year’s gatherings are a time of reflection and celebration, and HoneyBaked makes it easy to share a quality, fully-cooked meal without the hassle.

Honey Baked Hams are great for entertaining and the bone and ham slices serve as the star ingredient for an American culinary tradition. You’ll want to order enough ham on New Year’s Eve to save for this easy and delicious New Year’s Day recipe.
Ham & Black-eyed Pea Soup with Greens
In a 4-quart saucepan, heat and cook 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 medium onion and 1 garlic clove until tender.
Add 1/2 pound collard greens (stems removed, leaves chopped into 1/2 inch pieces), 2 cups chicken stock, 2 cups water, 1 small, finely minced Jalapeño pepper, one Honey Baked Ham bone and one cup of ham slices. Simmer until greens are tender, about 20 minutes.
Rinse and drain a 16-ounce can of black-eyed peas. Mash half of them with the back of a spoon and add all beans to the soup mixture. Add 1 medium diced tomato and simmer an additional 5 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper, and stir in 1 teaspoon cider vinegar and a dash of hot sauce. Recipe makes about 4 cups.
Soup mixes are also available from your local HoneyBaked store, along with a variety of heat-and-serve sides, including Green Bean Casserole. Share a sweet moment with irresistible pies and the seasonal favorite—Red Velvet Cake. Select stores are open New Year’s Day and items vary by store, so check online or with your local HoneyBaked location for hours and availability.
