Gullah Watch Night Menu Inspiration – Classic Freedom’s Eve Dinner

Gullah Watch Night Menu Inspiration – Classic Freedom’s Eve Dinner

Looking for a unique way to celebrate Watch Night or New Year’s Eve? Why not try out this classic Gullah Watch Night menu for a heritage food-inspired Freedom’s Eve dinner. Full of Gullah staples such as rice, greens, and field peas, this menu is full of Gullah Geechee tastes and flavors and artfully styled and shot by two Gullah tastemakers, Rashaunda Grant of Carolina Cookery and Trenise Elmore of Your World on Film.

Gullah Watch Night Menu Inspiration – Classic Freedom’s Eve Dinner

Hoppin Johns with Field Peas: This is a classic Lowcountry Dish and I only eat it with Field Peas and Fat Back. I have so many memories of this dish and definitely indulge beyond NYE whenever I can.

Hoppin Johns with Black Eyed Peas: What better way to get your black-eyed peas for the New Year than with Hoppin Johns. A great Gullah heritage dish to add to any meal.

Collard Greens with Pork Neck Bones: No Watch Night Dinner is complete without Collard Greens. Check out this option with Pork Neck Bones. Get inspired and try this recipe out below:

Turnip Greens with Smoked Turkey: Turnip greens are another great option for making sure you get the greens for money on your menu this New Year.

Cornbread: Whether you like it savory or sweet, drizzled with honey or molasses, cornbread must be on the menu and taste best cooked on a cast-iron skillet.

Ham Perloo: You have to have pork for prosperity, why not have it with some have. As the granddaughter of a hog farmer from the Lowcountry, I fully approve of this dish and suggest adding eggs for breakfast the next day.

Gizzard Perloo: My favorite holiday dish of all. I love it so much, I wrote about it on Food Network.
