I made this with what I thought were "small' potatoes, and found they took more like 15 minutes to cook. I also placed the frozen peas in a colander and ran hot water over them to defrost them before adding them along with the milk etc. for the last 5 minutes (step8). This recipe was easy, and really tasty, and I will definately make it again.

I made this using leftover boiled potatoes. I used green onions, more cream and less milk and a bit of butter. I was baking chicken so I popped it in the oven until it bubbled and stirred in the cooked peas before serving. A simple and delicious combination and a colorfull presentation - white creamy potatoes with dark green onions and bright green peas. I consider this as both a comfort food and a great addition to a dinner party.
