  • Place onions with peas in the saucepan, and fill with enough water to just cover the vegetables. Simmer until tender, about 10 to 12 minutes. Drain, and place vegetables in a bowl.

  • Melt margarine in the saucepan over medium-high heat. Pour in cream, and season with salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. Bring to a boil; cook until thick, stirring constantly. Stir peas and onions into the sauce to coat. Serve immediately.

Cook's Note:

One cup milk mixed with one tablespoon cornstarch can be substituted for the cream.

These have the potential for more stars but the cream never thickened up and the seasonings just weren't strong enough so it came out a little bland. I ended up thickening it with a little slurry and increasing the seasoning. Hubby just didn't like it though. Read More

9.19.11 ... https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/66409/creamed-onions-and-peas/ ... I liked these, but I was the only one. Their loss. I subbed much less chopped onions & cooked them with the frozen peas. Yummy, but so high in fat. Read More

I used about 10 cocktail onions (drained) and put in with the peas the last ten minutes of simmering. I simmered my peas about 10 minutes longer than suggested because we like almost mushy peas. The flavor was so good we will make this again soon. Read More

Really pleased with the suggestion to use milk. (One cup milk mixed with one tablespoon cornstarch can be substituted for the cream)..it made a light sauce and I used petite peas with cooked pearl onions....a little dill on top. Nice presentation too. Read More

I made this close to the recipe - added a little extra garlic and pepper and cooked the peas and onions for less time as our stove runs hot and we like fairly crisp vegetables. My family was a bit skeptical but everyone loved it! Read More

My kids loved all under 5. Made as directions said but added more flavor with more seasonings because I used more than 2 cups of peas. Probably 1/4 tsp of garlic powder and onion powder. At the end I added 1 slice american cheese so my kids would eat..haha. Very good. Had this with Brats homemade sauerkraut fried onions. A great side dish and easy. Read More

I doubled the spices as recommended by others and also added 1/4 t of nutmeg. Everyone really liked it including people who don't like creamed onions too much. Could have even added more peas or onions. Ends up with a lot of cream. Read More
