    Delicious! I grew potatoes for the first time this year and my mom kept talking about this special dish that one of her aunts used to make. I was so happy to find this recipe and re-create it for my mom. I used finely chopped white onion instead of green onion. Home run!

    This is a delicious side dish. My husband loves peas but is not a huge fan of potatoes but he will eat second helpings when I make these. I do amp it up a teeny bit by sautéing one minced clove of garlic in the butter and sprinkling with freshly ground black pepper just prior to serving.

    This was one of my favorites when I was growing up. My Grandma always made it with fresh peas out of the garden and I still make it 50 years later. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    This is a very good recipe and we will definitely make it again. Next time, I'm gonna add some carrots to it though. :)

    Oh my goodness!! This is a great side. My grandma used to prepare cream peas, never with potatoes. It was one of my favorite dishes. My daughter made this for a family get together, we ate it all. Great recipe!
