Creamed Peas and Potatoes


Creamed Peas and Potatoes

This goes so well with so many things, but I always seem to make it with Zesty Salmon Patties.  I like to cover my salmon patty with it and eat it together.  Just another comforting meal.

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups frozen peas, cooked
  • 3 medium red potatoes, leave skin on or 1 can diced potatoes, drained
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream, opt.

Wash potatoes and cut into 1/2″ chunks.  Put in pot with water to cover and cook until done.  In the meantime, put peas in microwave and cook until done but still bright green.

Make roux of butter and flour and whisk together.  Cook on medium heat until flour is cooked and not raw.  Don’t brown.  Add milk to roux and cook until thick.  Drain the potatoes and add to milk mixture.  Add peas and salt.  Serve.
