"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." — MSABBYK

Very good! My husband requested them again the next night! The only thing I would do differently the next time is to add the flour, salt and pepper to the bacon grease and cook the flour for a bit and then add the milk and peas. It tasted a bit like raw flour which I didn't care for, but it didn't seem to phase my husband!
I was craving creamed peas so I hunted for a recipe and found this one which added one of my favorite ingredients...bacon! I didn't have regular bacon on hand so I substituted pre-cooked which left me with no bacon grease. I used butter instead and added a little garlic powder and onion powder. Also used frozen peas instead of canned. Regardless, the dish was delicious and comforting.
My husband and I loved these peas. I doubled this recipe and added 2 TBSP. corn starch instead of flour. This is a great change from my pea salad which I am famous for and came up with myself but it is the only way I knew to make them except with just butter. My husband said this recipe was definitely going in our family cookbook and I agree. I served it with the creamy garlic mushroom chicken that was left over from a couple nights ago. For those of you who are interested, I threw the left over chicken in the slow cooker and dumped 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup on to and cooked it on high for like 2-3 hrs. till hot through. My variations to the recipe is on my review. I also had homemade whipped potatoes and grilled bread made from 12" hogie rolls. ENJOY!!!
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!!
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!
