Social Media Roundup New Year Menu Collections

Ever wonder why many Southerners eat certain foods to ring in the new year? Or, what are the traditional foods that make up a Southern New Year's menu and how they came to be?  Read on to find out AND grab some great recipes too, straight from Deep South Dish!

I learned when I shared the image above on my Facebook page, that not every single Southerner today buys into the traditions, and they sure let me know.

That's okay for them, but some of us stand by these rituals year after year as the New Year rolls in!

I'm not a particularly superstitious person myself, but somehow I just don't seem right unless I have some kind of pork on New Year's Day along with some kind of greens or cabbage and always black-eyed peas and cornbread. Besides y'all. It's all so tasty!

For me, it's a bit of a nod to those who came before me, as well as a nod to our future generations that when things seem dire, there is always hope.

I've provided the history, well as I know it, as to why these things are traditional, along with a variety of my classic recipes for each of those elements.

Just tap or click on the photo above or this link to get your choices for your New Year's Day pork roast, greens, black-eyed peas and cornbread - there are a lot of recipes, just scroll through them to find your own favorite!

Of course can't miss the party before too!

I've gathered up some of my favorite appetizers for New Year's Eve including Grape Jelly Sausages or Meatballs, Shrimp and Grits, Sausage Cheese Balls, Green Chile Cheese Squares, Shrimp CocktailCrab Stuffed PotatoesSausage Hanky Pankies, Chex Mix and much much more, including the "after party" things you might need, and for convenience, some of the next day recipes as well.

Tap on the champagne glasses above or this link to check out all of the New Year's Eve goodness!

Happy New Year y'all!
