Peas and New Potatoes
This is a recipe from Grandma Jenson. I LOVE it. It's one of my favorite things in the summer with fresh peas and potatoes.
Boil Whole Baby Potatoes, during the last few minutes, dump the fresh peas in boiling water and let cook. (it only takes a few minutes) Drain. (you can cut the potatoes if they are large, but I like the little ones left whole)
While potatoes are boiling make white sauce.
1/3 C Butter
1/4 C Flour
1/2 C Chicken Stock (or vegetable or whatever kind you have)
1 C Milk (or cream)
3/4 C Grated Cheese (any kind)
Salt and Pepper to taste.
Melt butter in saucepan, stir in flour to make a rue. Add Salt and Pepper to taste. Add chicken stock and Milk and bring to a boil. Let boil for a minute to thicken.
If desired, add 3/4 C Grated Cheese. Stir into rue until melted.
Pour white sauce over peas and potatoes and enjoy.
