Creole Peas in Cheese Sauce

August 6, 2018Teresa

Creole Peas in Cheese Sauce is a mouthwatering side dish you’ll absolutely love. It’s also incredibly quick and easy to make. I had this side dish ready in about 10 minutes! No kidding. That makes it perfect for holiday meals or company dinners. This tasty dish starts with a quick and easy white sauce. Adding cheddar cheese and Creole seasoning gives it a special kick that’s really awesome. Then after microwaving the peas about five minutes, they’re stirred into the sauce. That’s it. Simple, easy, quick, scrumptious.

I never was much for using Creole seasoning in food before I met one of our neighbors. She had us over for dinner one night and served about four things with it. My concern was that it would overpower everything. But that’s not true. It flavored everything exceptionally well, but nothing was overpowered. I’ve become a believer.

I made a slightly different version of these peas for a potluck for our weekly Friday night care group. When I texted Linda that I was making her recipe, she told me she also likes to make it occasionally with velveeta cheese. I tucked that thought into the back of my mind. A month or two later, I decided to make it again. This time I chose to use regular sharp cheddar cheese instead of processed cheese, but it was still fantastic. I served it with Hungarian Goulash and both were terrific.

These creamy, cheesy peas seasoned with Creole seasoning are really wonderful. I think salt and pepper alone would make them too bland. The Creole Seasoning amped up the flavors just enough to make the side dish interesting without overwhelming the other flavors. The nice thing about this side dish (other than being a great way to serve peas), is it’s so quick and easy. You can serve it with just about any kind of main dish and it tastes great. I don’t know about you, but give me a ten-minute side dish any day. 🙂

If you’re looking for a terrific way to serve peas, this Creole Peas in Cheese Sauce recipe is for you. This is so easy even a child can make it. It’s really not rocket science, like some exotic desserts that take 20-30 steps to make. For those of you short on time, you may find this is a great way to get your kids to eat their veggies, too. 🙂
