Creamed Peas

These Creamed Peas are not the peas you refused to eat as a kid. No, these are creamy and sweet and delicious!

Getting my kids to eat their peas was very easy once I started making them this way. Gone were the days of them whining and saying, “I don’t like peas”. I have even had people that normally don’t like peas gobble them up.

I got this recipe about 20 years ago in the mail. It was from one of those recipe clubs that sends a sample of free recipe cards, hoping you will subscribe. They send you a few recipes a month and then at some point you get either the book, or box, to put them in.

The original recipe was for Creamed Peas and Potatoes. It called for peas, red potatoes, and dill. That sounds pretty good to me now, but at the time I didn’t think my 3-year-old would be game for that.

And I was just learning to cook so I couldn’t risk making something that no one would eat.

Not to mention the fact that our family  was on a very tight budget and could not buy fresh dill to use in one recipe. I am guessing it was available at the grocery store like it is now, but honestly I have no idea.

When I make these peas I almost always make pork chops, and either fried potatoes or my Herb Roasted Red Potatoes, they really go well together.
