New Potatoes and Peas

My Grandma made these creamy potatoes and peas everytime she had fresh peas. Well, my peas sprouted this past week, so I made them. We miss them and need them more than once or twice a year!! (And yes, Landen loaded them up by himself in his truck.)

You will need:

About 4 medium red potatoes. Baby Reds work really well too.
1 cup of peas (fresh or frozen and thawed)
3TBSP butter
3TBSP flour
2 cups of milk
salt and pepper


Peel potatoes and chop. Add about 2 tsp salt and boil in 2 inches of water for about 20 minutes. (just like mashed potatoes!) Drain.

Make a white sauce: In saucepan, melt butter and whisk flour, salt and pepper in- about 1/2 tsp each. Stir until bubbly. Slowly add milk whisking constantly. Continue stirring until sauce comes to a boil.
Mix in potatoes and peas. Heat thoroughly, about 5 minutes.

And you're done!!

This is great with a ham steak, leftover roast, with hamburgers, etc.
