  • “I was brought up on foods like these. My Mom was quite often alone and with 5 kids to feed she needed easy, filling good. I still love them to this day. The only thing I found different in this recipe is the amount of milk..I was taught a roux was usually 1 butter (tbsp) 1 flour (tbsp)1 cup of milk or milk mixed with the juice of the peas or whatever vegetable you are using. Due to illness, there are many foods I can’t eat but I love these comfort ones and they don’t hurt me. I use olive oil becel in a dish, covered, and melt it in the microwave. I quickly whisk in the equal amount flour, then slowly add the milk pea juice to equal, whisking, then microwaving covered for 1 minute at a time then whisk each time. Once the peas are in, another minute or so in the microwave. Another goodie is creamed asparagus on toast..I mash the asparagus before adding to the roux. YUM!!! Cheap but easy dining, especially on a cold winter day!!!”

  • “Quick, easy and cheap. Especially delicious when eaten with the Light Wheat Bread from “Bread Baker’s Apprentice””

  • “This is comfort food at its best. Cheap as all get-out, and easy to make, too. I never had creamed peas over toast before I followed this recipe, and I LOVED the texture combination. Great recipe!!”

  • “My DH loved this, has not had since childhood.I used frozen peas and a few grates of fresh nutmeg.We used the peas as a side dish for pork chops.”

  • “Thanks!I grew up loving creamed peas.My own children and hubby don’t like them though!Shame on them.But I had never tried them on toast. Great!”

  • “Quick and easy recipe. Thanks Bohod”

  • “These peas were very good.Nice change to plain canned peas.Thanks”

  • “Yum! My husband gives this 5 stars, I give it 5 stars for the fact that he ate vegetables…I did end up adding about an extra cup of milk, the mixture turned into putty with just 1/2 cup of milk in it. Thanks for a quick, easy veggie for a week night. I didn’t serve it on toast, but I imagine it would be fantastic on toast.”

  • “Great recipe, just keep the milk out as it gets a bit thick.”

  • “I’m not going to rate with stars, because I haven’t actually made THIS recipe … but I have had a very similar version of this many, many rimes. It’s one of my go-to comfort foods … instantly makes me feel better. We always put grated parmesan in the white sauce, and even sprinkle a bit more on top of it on the toast! … I’m craving it now!”

  • “So simple and delicious!I did add some more milk at the very end because mine turned out a bit thick for my tastes.Thanks a bunch for posting!”

  • “Sometimes the beyond simple recipes are the best!This was served with BBQ grilled veggies and a salad.Simple, easy, fast and tasty.Thanks Sherry B”

  • “wonderful and easy recipe – i made as a side dish instead of with toast and it came out great!simple for us beginner cooks :)”

  • “Yummmy!I remember eating this as a kid.My favorite way is to eat it with a thin layer of Miracle Whip and a couple of slices of bacon on the toast.”

  • “First time I’ve made creamed anything and this is delicious!I was afraid I’d ruin the “creaming” process, but it was very easy.I’ll be honest, I didn’t put this but used the creamed peas as a side dish.Perfect size for our little family of two.”

  • “sooo good, I love peas and I love this.”
