"This recipe is so special I only served it for holidays or special occasions, and then I realized any day is special. This can be made ahead and kept warm in a 250 degree F (120 degree C) oven."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

We loved this side dish! There was a lot of flavor and would make a great side to a holiday meal. I did make these ahead and kept them warm in the oven like recommended. This will definitely be made again!
I agree with Bonnie about the MSG, you've got to be joking. Here in Australia they've banned it from use for health reasons. I make a similar peas, bacon and mushroom sides, but healthier without the cream and of course that rotten MSG. I did try this, but only the once and that was enough for me. I'll stick to my recipe, thanks.
I doubled the recipe for a potluck at work and everyone loved it. I used canned mushrooms and yellow onion. There was no oven available so I just heated it in the microwave right before serving.
As always I am looking for recipes that use up what I have. So I hesitate to give 5 stars since it's not the same recipe as written nor do I want to give it too few because if you are like me you look for how many folks like something and this is great even w/o the cream...Today what's in the fridge is peas and fresh mushrooms and cooked bacon. However I already made some creamed corn off this site and did not want two creamed dishes in one meal. So I simply left out the MSG (allergic and morally adverse)and the heavy cream. Tastes wonderful. Thanks!
12/11/14 Really good!! I added a little Tony's and garlic powder along with what they suggested. Didn't use whipping cream, kept it a broth mix, but next time I would try milk. Lot less fattening :)
Followed the recipe to the letter, except used pearl onions. Next time may add a little nutmeg to give it another dimension.
Did this for Thanksgiving, doubled the recipe, used pearl onions and portobello mushrooms, otherwise followed the recipe. Well received by all, will make again.
