Black-Eyed Peas - what to serve them over?

Ok, so I cooked up some black-eyed peas with pancetta, shallots, spinach and mushrooms. Should I just eat it as is or serve it over rice? Or something else? Any ideas would be appreciated.

      Well, they WERE brothy, but I drained them. I wasn't feeling it, I guess.

    2. Rice is traditional but polenta (or grits) are also delicious options.

        Huh. Hadn't thought of polenta/grits. I was thinking about barley, but rice I can do...

      2. Thanks for the responses!

        1. Definitely over rice or grits. I like your add in's, btw.

          1. I like my (brothy, slightly thickened with a light roux) black eyed peas over a slice of white bread. Reminds me of my childhood - so yummy.
