2 tablespoons butter 2 tablespoons flour 1 cup milk seasoning to taste 1 can peas (drained) or frozen baby peas
Melt 2 tablespoons butter over low heat. Add flour. Add and blend over low heat for 3-5 minutes Stir milk in slowly
Cook and stir the sauce with a wire whisk or wooden spoon until thickened and smooth. Season to taste. Stir in peas I use either drained can peas or frozen baby peas, both are good. I also double the recipe, it's according how many will be eating.
Had never had creamed peas. Wasn't sure what seasoning to use so I used salt, pepper, and some tarragon. I can see this definitely being appealing to kids. Overall good. Not a bad side recipe if you don't have anything else.

This is the only way my kids will eat peas aside from picking them up one by one. I use frozen petite peas.

I enjoyed this recipe but I had to add more milk because it called for too much flour. Next time I will start with half as much flour and add more as needed.
