my grandma used to make these all the time. my youngest son just loves them! try to keep the pea liquid and half and half equal. you may need to use a little more or less half and half. you can wisk in a little bit of flour to thicken them to your desired consistency. can use whole milk instead of half and half but won't be as creamy.
This is my own recipe and I think it makes the BEST mashed potatoes! The honey butter, cream cheese and white pepper give it a unique flavor that will have your friends and family begging for the recipe :)
An easily pre-prepared Christmas vegetable side dish - or for any large festive or celebration gathering throughout the year - using vegetables in season. These roast away without hardly any attention & can be peeled & chopped up to 2 days before cooking & stored in a ziplock bag with the juice of one lemon squeezed over them. Use whatever root vegetables you have in season or that are available - this combination of vegetables is the one that works best for me. Adding garlic works well too, but be careful it does not overpower the flavour of the meal!
This is so delicious, and is just perfect for any barbecue that your are having. You can substitute Barbecue sauce for the cheese and butter for a different flavor. Another different flavor is substituting Sun-Dried tomato and Oregano Dressing for the cheese and parsley. You can remove the hot foil-wrapped corn from the barbecue and stack on a platter and let the guests select and, de-foil and butter, their ear of corn when they desire. This will help the corn to stay warm longer.
Corn already seasoned so this is very easy to take for a picnic.No need to bring butter or salt. Just keep corn on ice till ready to cook because the sugar will turn to starch if it sits around. More reason to buy fresh as possible. Can be doubled or cut in half. Feel free to change the herbs.
These are the most wonderful potatoes. My family all really love them. How nice to have wonderful and easy in the same recipe. When new potatoes aren't available I have used the bags of very small potatoes available in any supermarket. This recipe is too good to be left for only one time of year!
The owner of the company I used to work at sent everyone a 5 lb box of Vidalia onions every year. This was included on a recipe brochure one year from the farm. I was surprised at how much I liked them, and they are healthy too.
