Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring water, peas, and salt to a boil in a saucepan; cook until peas are just tender, about 2 minutes. Drain and return peas to saucepan. Reduce heat to medium and stir in flour. Add butter and enough milk to barely cover peas. Cook and stir until thickened, 5 to 10 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can use whatever milk or cream you desire. Adjust to the amount of peas and creaminess that you desire. I also add a pinch of black pepper and stir in just before serving. Also good with a slice of American cheese added with the milk.

I usually make a white sauce and then add the cooked peas to it, but this worked OK adding the flour and milk to the peas and then thickening. I used only 1/2 cup of milk, and it was the perfect consistency for us, so I would caution you about adding a full cup. Start with less and then add more if needed. Nice basic recipe for creamed peas. Read More

This recipe is great however I altered my just a little bit. First I used the juice out of a can of peas to make this dish worked great and added flavor to my creamed peas secondly I chose to make rue first ( Butter and flour) this worked out great as its the thicken agent in this dish. Lastly I found that instead of 1 1/2 cups water just just 1 cup of juice out of the can and 1 1/2 cups of milk or cream. This is a great dish and one I loved very much. Read More

To bring out the taste of the peas add a teaspoon or so of sugar. Also a little fresh parsley. You can skip the part about cooking the peas first- just cook them in the butter until they thaw and just start to cook through then add the flour salt and milk. Read More

Creamed peas! Excellent quick and perfect for two. I used new garden peas (sold in a bag at grocers) next time maybe a little less milk but oh so good! I served with a new recipe for a salmon loaf (used up a few small cans of salmon) and some fresh mashed potatoes. (Extra cream peas spilled over on potatoes). Yummy! Read More

Good! Used 1/2 c. milk and a dash of pepper as suggested by the previous reviewer and a slice of american cheese as mentioned in the "note". Also added a shake of spicy seasoned salt for a little added flavor. Read More
