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.

How to Make Grandma Sadie's Peas, New Potatoes and Cream Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Shell the peas, scrub the potatoes
  2. Boil 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.
  3. Drain 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.
