Creamy Red Potatoes and Peas

I tried these Creamy Red Potatoes and Peas for the first time today and think everyone will love them with Sunday dinner one day soon! I simply steamed the potatoes and tossed frozen peas in for the last couple minutes. Sauteed some onion in butter and made a quick white sauce-done. White sauce just seems to make everything better... Leftovers will be mixed with some grilled turkey sausage for a hearty lunch:@)
I used 2% milk but if there's room in your diet for it, I'll bet they'd be great with anything right on up to heavy cream-especially for the holidays:@) There was a lot of flour in the original recipe, I only added an extra tsp to a standard white sauce and would leave that out next time.

Creamy Red Potatoes and Peas-adapted from Favorite Family Recipes
6-8 new potatoes, cubed
1 C frozen peas
1 1/2 Tblsp butter 
1/8 C onion, sliced thin-optional but good
1 Tblsp A/P flour-maybe an extra tsp if you like your sauce really thick
1 C milk or cream
S&P to taste
  1. Steam (or boil) potatoes until tender, add peas a couple minutes before the potatoes are done.
  2. While potatoes cook, melt butter in skillet, add onion and saute until tender.
  3. Add flour and stir in well.
  4. Add milk and cook until thick and bubbly, add S&P.
  5. Mix potatoes and peas with white sauce.
  6. Enjoy dinner!
Eat well and have a happy day:@)
