    Chicagoland Chef du Jour's Note:

    This white sauce is affectionately known as "Pea Gravy" in our house. Makes me smile & laugh every time I say it. I grew up on the stuff. It was always served over rice alongside Wienerschnitzle Ala Wolfgang Puck. Enjoy!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 tablespoons salted butter
    • 2 tablespoons white flour, generous TBLS
    • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon seasoning, I prefer G. Washington Golden
    • 2 cups milk, any type, maybe a bit less
    • 1/2 cup frozen peas, not canned they tend to be too mushy


    1. 1
      Over low heat, slowly melt the butter in a sauce pan. **I often let it get to the brown butter stage but you don't have to. I'm just mentioning this so that you know that it's ok and not burnt!
    2. 2
      Add the bouillon, whisk, then add the flour. Continue whisking until completely incorporated. It will be thick and pasty.
    3. 3
      Continue whisking and cook a bit longer to get rid of the raw flour taste. About 1 minute.
    4. 4
      Over LOW heat, add milk, 1/2 C at a time continue to whisk while the sauce thickens. Slowly add another 1/2 C, whisk until creamy. Continue adding milk until it no longer thickens and it is creamy.
    5. 5
      Add the frozen peas, allow to warm through, about 5 minutes.
    6. 6
      Serve hot.

      I made a half of recipe, except I did not halve the peas. I used frozen peas and followed the recipe as written. I had some leftover rice, which I reheated and spooned this over and it was quite good. I think next time I will add a bit more flour to thicken up the gravy even more and also would like some onions or even cheese for a bit more punch of flavor. It came together quite easily and I like the fact that the ingredients are easily kept on hand. Good comfort food on a cool and rainy day! Made for Easy Peasy theme in My 3 Chefs event. Thanks Chicagoland Chef de Jour!
