Reviews for Creamed Peas
"These were pretty tasty. I think it could have possibly used just a tad more sugar, but perhaps the peas I had just weren't the sweet kind. I'd make this side dish again (it was very easy), but maybe try to tweak the sauce just a tad."
"All I can say about these peas is Yummy!"
"We loved this. The only thing I did differently was not precook the peas. I defrosted them completely and then added them when the white sauce had thickened."
"Taste Great! So easy to make!"
"I've never enjoyed sweet peas so much! The ease of the recipe was a big bonus. Used F/F half and half instead of milk and it worked just fine."
"I got this recipe in a TOH book. I've been making this for many years. My husband loves it when I make it. His favorite meal is creamy meatloaf, homemade mashed potatoes, and these yummy peas. I also make a blueberry cobbler for dessert."
"First time ever making creamed peas and they turned out so good! Great, quick and easy side dish. Served it with salmon patties made from the fish my husband caught yesterday in the San Juans . . . ."
"This is an excellent dish. Easy and delicious. I added red potatoes (quartered and cooked) and used canned peas."
"Yum!! Very good recipe!"
"This is wonderful! I was impressed by two things - 1, the sauce did not become grainy after boiling, and 2, the sugar improved the flavor of the sauce 100%. The only thing I did different was not precook the peas. I used frozen, placed them in cold water to thaw, drained well the put them in as I heated the sauce up. They were perfect. Thank you so much for this recipe!"
"I have made this recipe a couple times. I substituted fried mushrooms or cooked carrots. I love the sauce no matter what veg is added."
"I used the canned peas with pearl onions. The onions were extremely salty, but the peas and cream sauce were excellent. My husband, 11, and 4 yr old all loved it as well. Next time I will either saute a diced onion in the butter or use fresh frozen pearl onions. Will most definitely make this again."
"My husband & I both work late. Since I have time in the morning and he gets home before I do, I try to put together a casserole that he can throw in the oven. To compliment the casserole, I throw together a quick & easy side dish when I get home. Yesterday I made tuna casserole and decided that peas would be good to go with it. I did not want just peas, so I looked up this recipe. It was quick and delicious and big hit with my husband. It will go into my recipe file now and will find its way out many times."
"We were snowbound on Christmas Day so couldn't make it to the family gathering, and I had to come up with a menu for dinner for my husband, my daughter and me on the fly. I went with this recipe because I had all of the ingredients on hand and wouldn't need to make any substitutions. Funny how I didn't realize until today that my husband loves creamed peas! Anyway, it's a good basic recipe. I want to try it over salmon patties someday."
"I made this recipe of a church dinner and it was great. I used the steamable package of frozen peas and mushrooms and i sliced two boiled eggs into the pea mixture and heated well. Great recipe."
"I love this old-fashioned dish!."
