Make our Black-Eyed Pea Baked Squash Restaurant Recipe at home tonight for your family. With our Secret Restaurant Recipe your Baked Squash will taste just like The Black-Eyed Pea’s.

The Black-Eyed Pea is a restaurant chain based in Texas. It has about 20 locations in Eastern Texas and only two outside of Texas. One in Colorado and, weirdly, one in Henderson, Tennessee. Now I am not likely to get to Eastern Texas or Colorado very often — but I’m down around Henderson quite a bit (I have friends and many, many relatives who live in Southern Kentucky and the Nashville area.) I think I may try The Black Eyed Pea out next time I am down (and maybe listen to the Black-Eyed Peas on the drive down. 🙂 )
