Creamed Potatoes and Peas
1 15 oz. can Small Whole White Potatoes, sliced
2 cups Milk
3 tablespoons Water
3 tablespoons Corn Starch
1 1/2 cups frozen Petite (or small) Peas
1 tablespoon Butter (or margarine)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Place sliced potatoes into a medium sauce pan. Add milk and over a medium low heat bring the milk to a simmer.
Mix water and cornstarch in a small bowl. While stirring, slowly add the cornstarch mixture to the milk and potatoes. Add frozen peas and bring up to a simmer. You want this to come almost to a boil, so it will thicken to a thick sauce or gravy consistency.
Once it is thick, add butter, salt and pepper.
