Description

So, I think cooked peas are super disgusting. And my family agrees. But that was before we discovered this recipe for Creamed Peas! Not your typical, pale, mushy peas for sure. I make a double batch and there is STILL none left! I am not kidding!

My kids asked for second servings of PEAS with this recipe. It’s a MIRACLE!

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • 1 cup Milk
  • ½ teaspoons Sugar (optional)
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 dash Pepper
  • 2 cups Frozen Peas

Preparation

Melt butter over medium heat in a 1 quart saucepan, and whisk in flour until well blended and smooth. Now very gradually stir in the milk. When milk is combined, add sugar, salt and pepper. Cook and stir until sauce beings to boil. Stir and boil 1 minute. Add frozen peas and stir. Cover pan and allow to simmer for 5 minutes over medium heat. Do NOT over cook these! Soggy peas will ruin this dish. You want them tender but firm.

I double this every time, and not a single pea is left!

I make this recipe all the time. Only today did I realize I had never rated it. It has been my go-to recipe for creamed peas for a couple of years! I’ve been making it with skim milk and it still tastes very good! Thanks so much for sharing!
