frozen green peas
sliced fresh mushrooms
ground black pepper
This was a perfect recipe for me & my husband. He loves peas and I love mushrooms (added extra) We both loved this one. It's a keeper!
Creamed Peas is something my mother would make occasionally and I remember thinking it was a treat when she did. I loved 'em! But...back then canned vegetables were most commonly used, so the creamed peas were made with canned peas. Hubs and I agree canned were, and still are, infinitely better than frozen, and while this recipe takes frozen peas a step in the right direction, they're still frozen peas. That said, this is a good recipe, and I particularly liked the subtle hint of nutmeg (I used fresh grated). Cooking the peas for five minutes is not necessary and might even shrivel them up - just heating them up is fine. In fact, they were a little too creamy and just throwing in an extra handful of frozen peas took care of that - no cooking necessary! I'd consider giving this another try - with canned peas.
I like both mushrooms and peas and the idea of them together as a side dish sounded good. I did not have canned peas so I used frozen sweet peas. I did not cook the peas for a full five minutes as I did not want them overcooked. I just cooked them until tender and set them aside. I also wanted to retain their bright green color. I thought they were tasty but a little too creamy for me. I would cut back on the amount of light cream next time. The nutmeg was a nice subtle addition and this dish was tasty overall. I served this with, "Sunday Meat Loaf," and "Montreal Steak Seasoned Mashed Potatoes," from AR site.
This was the first time I had ever made creamed peas and I am so glad I tried this recipe first. It is the only way I will make them from now on! I only made one substitution - I didn't have cream so I used evaporated milk, and a little extra butter. I also used canned mushrooms instead of fresh. This was delicious, and everyone at the table loved them!
This tasted great, and looked much more complicated than it is! I made some substitutions for convenience, but the taste was still fantastic: canned peas and mushrooms instead of frozen or fresh, half & half instead of cream, and 1 tsp onion powder instead of onions (we don't like onions). This has such a mild flavor, it went very well with a spicy main dish.
Creamed peas over New Red Potatoes is a favorite! Milk works just as well as the cream-Mushrooms were a nice addition but then again I like mushrooms in just about everything except Captain Crunch!!
This dish is delicious! My husband and I really enjoyed it. This is a classic dish that is always a crowd pleaser. I will make this again and again. Thanks for sharing, Cheeto!
These were pretty good! Even my pea-hating fiance liked them. I gave it 4 stars just because it was pretty bland. I added quite a bit of pepper and threw a clove of garlic (chopped) in. I used skim milk and a little extra flour. Thanks :)
