This is a really simple side dish featuring peas and cheese. I double the recipe and take it to many family gatherings.

I only gave this 3 stars because it lacked the chopped boiled eggs and the sugar should be omitted since the miracle whip itself is sweet. Otherwise follow the recipe. Read More

I make this recipe all the time with a few adjustments. I use iceberg lettuce as the first layer then some shredded cheddar cheese then the peas as the next layer then the mircle whip/sugar on top of all that. Then as the finale... I top with grated parmesean. Put in refridgator to let tasts "marry". This is sooo very good!! And so very easy. Read More

This is awesome. I accidently hit the print button during a recipe finding marathon. I had all the parts and decided why not. It took 5 minutes to make tops. This is now a weekly must have. I think the yellow or white onions have a better flavor than the red. I also use shredded cheddar but only for the texture. Read More

Quick easy great taste and cheap! Can't ask for more than that. It's much better made with thawed frozen peas though. It's on my regular rotation for summer; we'll be eating this often. Read More

This is a very easy-to-make recipe and it usually gets good reviews when I take it to potlucks. I add chopped boiled eggs and don't use the sugar however. Read More

leave out the sugar. use mayo. season with black pepper. My first husband made this and I was horrified! And then decided was definately good and in comfort food category. Frozen peas would work too but the canned peas bring back memories of what we ate 50 years ago! Read More
