Creamed Peas & Potatoes w/Pearl Onions

Kimberly Biegacki


So, tonight I was craving a dish that my Grandma Campbell used to make as soon as she could get some new potatoes from the garden and there was enough pea pods to pick to make this comfort food. It is really simple to make. The true brillance of this dish is getting the sweet crunchy peas, potatoes & onions fresh from the garden. Those fresh peas made me & my little Sis devout fans. They are fabulous in a salad! Often, my sister & I would get into trouble as we were shelling the peas because we would sneak & eat handfuls of them leaving very little for the dish Grammie was making.

How to Make Creamed Peas & Potatoes w/Pearl Onions


  1. Steam your potates and peas till tender. Prepare you pearl onions by boiling for 5 minutes and removing skins. Mix all three in a bowl once you have your sauce ready to pour over them.
  2. Add your butter to a sauce pan and melt on medium heat. Once melted add in your flour and whisk till it is a paste. Now add your cream and keep whisking. Keep stirring till it begins to thicken. About 5 to 7 minutes or so. I like to add just a little fresh grated nutmeg but that is optional. If you need it thicker add a little more flour. If too thick add a little milk or more cream.

    Prepare sauce and pour over veggies.
  3. Now mix your cream sauce in with the veggies and coat well. Add your salt and pepper and you are ready to serve.
  4. If using frozen peas this is a good brand to find.
  5. Here is a photo of fresh peas that were just shelled.
