One of my favorites! I have been eating this since I can remember! Please don't use canned peas -- the taste is all wrong with those!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion, medium sized, but really to your taste
  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen peas (thawed)
  • salt and pepper, to your taste


  1. Slice onion into thin rings, but not super thin, a little thicker than you would put on a sandwich!
  2. In a large frying pan melt the butter over medium high heat until slightly sizzling and browning.
  3. Saute onion rings in the butter, when close to being brown and caramalized, add the peas, and continue to cook for about 8-10 minutes until the peas are done but not mushy!
  4. Salt and pepper to taste!

I had grabbed a bag of frozen peas by accident as I don't normally purchase frozen peas. I made them exactly as written and my family ate them but they weren't their favorite. They asked why I would put onions in with peas. I guess we are just not onion with peas fan.
