Grandma Sadie's Peas, New Potatoes and Cream Sauce

Sherry Blizzard


Grandad Bill always had the best garden. Peas and potatoes were staples. When Grandma Sadie asked my brother Steve what he wanted for his birthday, his reply was always Creamed Peas and Potatoes...and she made it for him. I miss my Grandma. Today I am honoring her memory with her recipe. I hope you try it and enjoy it as much as we do. She is gone but never forgotten.

Stove Top


1-1/2 c
new potatoes, scrubbed - dice the larger pieces into1 1/2" chunk
2 c
shelled fresh peas (can use frozen)
3 Tbsp
1/4 c
3/4 c
milk or half and half
salt and pepper to taste


1Shell the peas, scrub the potatoes
2Boil the potatoes to almost done (soft). Remove from water with a slotted spoon. Add peas to the boiling water. Cook 3-5 minutes....only until slightly soft. You still want a little crunch on them. Remove with a slotted spoon to the potatoes.
3Drain the water from the pan. Add the butter to melt. Add the flour to the melted butter and stir to make a roux. Add milk to make a gravy. Add salt and pepper to taste. This needs to be thin enough to coat the peas and potatoes.
4Add the peas and potatoes to the blonde roux and stir together. Salt and pepper to taste. ENJOY!
