Holiday Peas Recipe

My mom used to 'dress up' peas with buttered cracker crumbs when I was little and it remains one of my favorite dishes. Just about any type of savory crackers can be substituted, including herb-flavored varieties. —Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin

"These were good not great. They did make the peas more appealing to non-pea eaters. I only used half of the cracker mixture. I felt it was a lot to put on top."

"This recipe is truly good, I added the wheat crackers but the crispy onions were requested as well. One good way to get peas eaten and there were no leftovers!!!!"

"I served this on an weekday so it wasn't a holiday but we gave it a go! I didn't butter the peas or season them. The crumb topping did all that for me. It was good but the crumbs get mushy so it's best eaten right away.I used a veggie herb cracker by the way."
