It was just the Son & I tonight, so he asked if I'd make him this side rice dish...I make his a meal, by adding some browned sausage to it...I usually serve this with pork, although it would be a great side with any meat...

Enjoy!

How to Make Creamy Peas & Rice

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large skillet, melt butter and add to the pan the mushrooms, onion and garlic. Salt & pepper. Saute until lightly browned.
  2. Add the milk, soup, peas and rice, bring to a boil, then simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. If more milk is needed add to your liking. Sometimes the rice will absorb more than expected. You want it creamy - not dry.
  3. Place lid on pan and turn off burner. Let set for 5 minutes or until rice is tender. This is where I would add desired add ins if using.

    Serve immediately.
