Creamed Peas with Bacon

Rated as 4.38 out of 5 Stars

"This recipe has been in my family for years. It was my grandmother's. The peas are whole, not like baby food creamed peas! They simmer in bacon grease, evaporated milk, flour, salt and pepper. Very creamy and homemade and they even taste great heated up the next day."

  1. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove from pan, crumble bacon, and reserve.
  2. Stir peas into bacon grease left in skillet. Cook on low heat until peas are warm. Stir together flour, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Pour in evaporated milk and whisk until smooth. Stir milk mixture into peas; cook over medium heat until heated through and thickened. Stir in bacon.

This was good.. made to recipe just doubled for thanksgiving- needs something in the seasoning though.. to us anyway.. thanks for the recipe..

My husband ate peas! That says it all! Cooked just as-it was wonderful! Thanks for the recipe!

Loved this recipe. We've been looking for one like Grandma used to make and this one nailed it. Making more for dinner tonight!!

We really enjoyed this although I have to say something was missing. Next time I'll add garlic power, onion powder, etc. But it was quite good and a good stand in for the pub food "mushy peas"...

My husband and I both enjoyed this.

I'm not a fan of peas but my family is so I try ways to "dress them up" and this recipe is a keeper!
