Creamed Peas or Creamed Corn

I can remember loving these from an early age. My kids also love them, especially when poured over a helping of mashed potatoes. Yum!

Creamed Peas or Creamed Corn

Creamed Peas or Creamed Corn


  • 1- 15 oz can of sweet peas or corn (or use about 2 c. frozen peas/corn + 2/3 c. water or chicken broth)
  • 2 T. butter or margarine
  • 1/3 c. milk ( I think my grandma used evaporated milk and it was so good!)
  • 2 T. cornstarch
  • 1/2 t. sugar, optional
  • salt and pepper to taste


Bring peas and butter to a boil over medium heat.

Combine the milk, cornstarch, sugar, salt, and pepper in a small cup or bowl.

Add to the boiling peas and reduce to a simmer.

Cook 1-2 minutes or until thickened.
