I know it’s kind of late for another side dish for Thanksgiving. But I am a Pea lover, so I will make this anytime. On Friday nights when I was growing up, my Mom, Geri, would make Salmon patties and creamed peas. She served the peas right over the crispy little tasty patties. Here’s the simple recipe:
2 cups peas (if fresh, boil about 5 minutes.). If frozen, just use them that way.
1 small chopped onion
2 Tbs. each: butter and oil
Saute onion in oil till soft. Add 2 tbs. cornstarch to the onions, stirring till lumps are gone. Put peas into the onion mixture and then
Add one cup:
Milk, cream or Evaporated Milk
Simmer a couple of minutes till thick like gravy. Serve!
