1 1/2 cups
milk, or as needed
I usually make a white sauce and then add the cooked peas to it, but this worked OK adding the flour and milk to the peas and then thickening. I used only 1/2 cup of milk, and it was the perfect consistency for us, so I would caution you about adding a full cup. Start with less and then add more if needed. Nice basic recipe for creamed peas.
To bring out the taste of the peas, add a teaspoon or so of sugar. Also, a little fresh parsley. You can skip the part about cooking the peas first- just cook them in the butter until they thaw, and just start to cook through, then add the flour, salt, and milk.
Good! Used 1/2 c. milk and a dash of pepper as suggested by the previous reviewer, and a slice of american cheese as mentioned in the "note". Also added a shake of spicy seasoned salt for a little added flavor.
