There’s something remarkably comforting about potatoes, wouldn’t you agree? The humble spud gets a luscious makeover in this recipe, which is perfect for those times when you’re craving something a little different than the usual mashed potatoes or rice. And the best part? It’s a breeze to whip up! Just a half-hour in the kitchen and you’re ready to serve.

Now let’s talk peas. These little green gems add a pop of color and a delightful sweetness to the dish, making it not just kid-friendly, but a winner at any gathering. Remember the sheer joy of discovering those little spheres of flavor when you were a child? This dish brings back those beautiful memories with every bite.

Here’s how you make it:

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 pound baby red potatoes
  • 1 cup frozen peas (fresh peas work great too)
  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream, or half and half
  • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  • Start with the potatoes: Give them a good wash, then cut into bite-sized pieces. Drop them into a pot of boiling water, letting them cook until they’re tender when prodded with a fork (around 5-8 minutes). Be vigilant – the potatoes should hold their shape, so avoid overcooking them. Once done, drain and put them aside.
  • Now, let’s create the magic – the cream sauce. Using the same pot over medium heat, melt the butter. Then, sprinkle in the flour, stirring consistently for a minute.
  • Time for the milk! Pour it in slowly, whisking continuously to get a smooth blend. Keep stirring until the sauce starts to thicken slightly.
  • Seasoning time: Stir in the chicken bouillon paste, followed by pepper and a dash of salt. Now, introduce the heavy cream into the mix, stirring until you’ve got a gravy-like consistency. Taste the sauce, and adjust the seasoning to your liking. If the sauce is too thick, a splash of milk will do the trick.
  • The final act: Add the cooked potatoes and peas to the cream sauce, stirring gently to coat them evenly. And voila! Your Creamy Potatoes with Peas are ready to serve warm and delicious.


  • If you’re using fresh peas, just boil or steam them for a minute or two before adding to the recipe. You could even pop them into the potato water during the last 2 minutes of boiling.
  • Storing this dish is easy – just pop it into an airtight container and refrigerate. It’ll keep well for 3-4 days. When it’s time for a creamy reunion, heat it on the stove, adding a splash of milk if needed.
  • So, why wait? Indulge in this cozy, hearty dish that’s sure to transport you back to those comforting family dinners of yore. Enjoy, my friends!
