Festive Peas and Onions

Total Time

Prep: 35 min. Bake: 40 min.


4-6 servings

The first time I tried this recipe, my friend finished half of it while my back was turned! That was over 30 years ago, but the dish is just as popular today.


  • 1 package (16 ounces) frozen pearl onions
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen peas, thawed
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of celery soup, undiluted
  • 1 jar (2 ounces) diced pimientos, divided
  • 1/3 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese


  1. Prepare onions according to package directions. Drain, reserving 1/4 cup liquid. In a large bowl, combine the onions, peas, soup, 2 tablespoons pimientos and reserved cooking liquid; stir to coat. Transfer to a greased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish.
  2. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese and remaining pimientos. Bake 5 minutes longer or until the cheese is melted.
