Dad’s Creamed Peas & Pearl Onions
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
I prepared this recipe on 1/1/2021. I'd used thyme leaves which I crushed and cooked 10 to 15 minutes! This is a delicious side dish! I must admit that I'd added a leftover RICE recipe combined with leftover cooked chicken TO the recipe to stretch it!
Another great recipe to try during this pandemic, when most of us are eating in every night. I used half sour cream and half heavy cream. Also used pecans instead of cashews (it's what I had on hand). It was seriously delicious.
Delicious! I cut this recipe in half b/c I was only serving three. I used 12 oz bad of peas, almost half a bag of (12 oz) pearl onions. I did use the full amount of seasoning and added rosemary. I used One 1/4 cup sourcream and 2 tablespoons cream. It was really good. I served with homemade fried chicken, Mac and cheese, and melon. I usually make my fried chicken with greens (collard or mustard) but my husband hates greens and really liked these peas.
This is a very nice side dish. Made it for Christmas. Only used three cups of peas. Substituted sausage crumbled (frozen), add them in with the main seven ingredients. Also not a big fan of sour cream, but I did have some in the house, so I used half sour cream and half regular cream. Turned out great. Made it in advance and warmed up later in a 350 oven for a little over 20 minutes. Thank you for sharing.
This recipe is so delicious! I made this for a Memorial Day cookout, and there was almost nothing left of it after everyone ate their fill. The only trouble I had was finding the frozen pearl onions, but wow are they delicious. It was worth heading to a second store to find them. I highly recommend this and am planning to make it again.
