Why I Love This Recipe

Adapted from a recipe by Delores Vazquez, a very good cook and friend.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 strip bacon, small dice
3 T minced onion

1 8 oz. Pkg cream cheese
1 1/2 C light cream

4 C cooked potatoes - cubed (approx. 4 med)
1/2 pkg frozen peas
salt and pepper to taste
1 T chives
2 T minced parsley
tiny pinch fresh nutmeg


Use a pan large enough to hold entire recipe.

Render bacon on med-low heat till crisp.

Drain and reserve bacon, leaving a light coating of fat in pan - caramelize onions in fat.

In another pan, melt and blend cream cheese and cream then beat till smooth and creamy.

Add to onions along with the rest of the ingredients, including bacon.

Simmer on low 15-20 minutes.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

We absolutely love creamed potatoes and peas, although I have never seen a recipe quite like this, I just have to remember to try this in the spring. We always have creamed potatoes and peas when the first of the peas come in and there are fresh new potatoes.
